Jane held several jobs in the medical and retail fields. She attended Riverside Community Church and was active in St. Theresa’s school activities and enjoyed helping with the annual fundraising garage sale.

Jane enjoyed hosting pool parties, shopping, family gatherings and family vacations. She loved being around people and was always on the go. Her contagious bubbly laugh was one you never forgot. She was very generous and thoughtful. She had several quirky routines, including her love of iced tea.

Jane is survived and lovingly remembered by her children, Emily and Max Kouri, their father, Dave Kouri all of Des Moines; her mother, Carla (Mark) Hopkins of Lakeview, Arkansas; her brother, Jon Kuiper of Clinton, Iowa and her significant other, Pat Wilson of Pleasant Hill.
