    The Tenaya Elementary School family was stunned to hear that its beloved 7/8th grade teacher, Mrs. Jane Townsend, had suddenly passed away Wednesday evening, December 7 at the age of 62. Jane had been a member of the Tenaya community for more than 20 years. She started as a substitute teacher and was soon hired as full-time once she completed her credential. Jane had also worked as an instructor at the Sierra Conservation Center in Jamestown. Mrs. Townsend’s keen intelligence and creativity made her classroom an energetic, dynamic environment for young learners. Innovative projects were always under construction, and Jane’s infectious laughter could easily be heard above the busy hum of activity. A devoted professional,
    Jane dedicated her summers and vacations to participating in a variety of grant-funded projects. She was well-known throughout the county and region for her contributions to science and mathematics education.
    Mrs. Townsend will be missed by everyone who knew and respected her.
    Jane is survived by her husband, Gary Townsend of Big Oak Flat; sons Chris Townsend of Chico and Ryan Townsend of Big Oak Flat. She had a daughter-in-law, Sarah and grandsons, Kai Anderson, and Benjamin Townsend; brother Jeff Draudt of Phoenix; sisters Marcia Foley of Arapaho, Nev., and Jenny Matt of Wisconsin.
    A memorial service is being planned for Saturday, January 7 at 1:00 p.m. in the Tenaya Gym. A reception will follow in the cafeteria.
