FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Jane Eileen Coomes, 54, of Fayetteville, passed away Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, after a sudden and unexpected illness.

A memorial service to celebrate Jane’s life will be at 1 p.m. Feb. 1 at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Starr Drive in Fayetteville. Local funeral services will be at a later date in Dixon. Nelson-Berna Funeral Home in Fayetteville is handling arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation, 877 S.
