Jane Klatte

June 25, 2010

Jane was born Feb. 1, 1924, in Brazil, Ind.  She was the only child of Dee Krider and Lorraine Vickers Krider.

Brazil was a small town in rural Indiana where her father maintained his dental practice. Jane graduated from Brazil High School in 1942.  She attended DePauw University and graduated from Indiana University in 1945.

She met her husband, Ernest W.  Klatte, M.D., while both were attending medical school at Indiana University during World War II. She later decided to end her medical school studies and became a licensed clinical laboratory technician.

Jane and Ernie were married June 19, 1948. She followed her husband through his internship, residency and two tours of duty in the United States Navy, living in Galveston, Texas, Coronado, Long Beach, San Francisco and Yokohama, Japan, before settling with her husband and family in Ukiah, Calif., in 1956.

In 1969, she moved to Newport Beach with her family. She lived in the Newport-Mesa community for the next 41 years.

Jane was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother.  Before health problems restricted her, Jane was an active member of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, and she had a deep and abiding faith.

She was a gifted classical pianist. For many years, she was an avid bridge player and played in several local bridge groups. She loved to read, kept up on current events, and enjoyed arguing about politics.  Above all, she loved to spend time with her husband, children and grandchildren.

Jane is survived by her husband, Ernest W. Klatte, her son, Ernest W. (“Will”) Klatte, III, her daughter-in-law, Annick, and her three grandchildren, Emily, William, and Andrew.

Services will be at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church at 2 p.m. June 24, 2010.  In lieu of flowers,  donations can be made in her name to Share Ourselves (www.shareourselves.org) in Costa Mesa.
