Obituary for Jane Beverly Hodge
Jane Beverly Hodge, who died on January 6, 2018, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, age 67, was an adventurous, humorous and strong woman who will be remembered for her bright laugh, compassion for others and unyielding love of life, even while bravely struggling with cancer. A retired mental health counselor, Jane was born on April 18, 1950 in Providence, Rhode Island, but called many places home.
A graduate of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, she also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she pursued degrees at San Francisco State University and John F. Kennedy University. Like her ancestors who were among the first settlers on Block Island, Jane enjoyed traveling to Europe and farther afield to India, Nepal and Tibet.
Growing up, Jane loved the windswept beaches of Block Island and her family home there; she also co-founded the spectacular Hodge Family Wildlife Preserve. Jane was a dog breeder and lover of animals, especially her four Italian greyhounds, and also started a successful pet-sitting business.
After relocating to the Boston area, Jane was always eager to travel, whether to Washington, D.C. to march for women’s rights or abroad. “My thing my whole life has been that I wanted to see as much of the world as I could,” she told the Boston Globe in a story about around-the-world travel.
There will be a private family burial.
