Jane Clark Brown

I just found out that Jane Clark Brown, illustrator of the Marvin books, passed away in January. I met Jane at a Camp Hochelaga reunion. She was a tireless worker for Camp, and even at the reunion, I watched her pull a weed here and there. At Hochelaga, in the the new library, in the new Lodge, that she had worked hard to get built, we sat and talked about children's books, editors and illustrations. I was so looking forward to having another time like that with her at 90th reunion this summer.

Jane Clark Brown, Hochelaga Girl, you will be missed.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. It's a heartfelt rendering of Hochelega girls.

Jane was a neighbor and friend, my daughter who is now 8 is attending Camp Hochelaga for the first time this week....per Jane's recommendation of 6 years ago.
I'm am so sorry and sad that the two of them won't be able to talk about their experiences there. The first year Jane won't be involved is the first year my G will be....I guess there is something to that
