Beulah Jane Reece was the 5th child and second daughter of Zeb and Vallie Reece.
My aunt “Jane” was born on September 19, 1933 in Summit County, OH. I haven’t been able to figure out if she was born on Archwood, as
was her sister (my mother) Alice, two years later.
Jane married Albert Lozier on 21 SEP 1951. He was born on March 17, 1933 and he passed away on July 29, 2011. (Her obituary says
marriage was on the 22nd, but it had numerous errors in it that have been corrected below) I will attempt to find documentation to verify this
in the future.
Jane appears in lots of group family photos through the years. Most of these are found on her Father (Zeb Vance Reece) pages. But here
are a few cropped from those.
I do not know what year this was taken.
This photo was taken in front of Jane
and Albert's house in Lodi, OH

And in Closing
We lived in Ohio, I think it was in Barberton, and a rare treat was when we all got to go visit Aunt Jane and all our cousins. When I first knew her, they were
building a house on a piece of land out in the country and were living in what would become the basement. I didn’t know my uncle Albert very well. He always
seemed quiet and a bit gruff. I learned from her brother, Alvin, that they had a business that was something to do with truck caps.
Later on in the late 60s or early 70s they finished the upstairs of the house. But I only remember being in it when it was still a 2x4 forest.
I remember her telling us about how she had sugar-cured a ham and how they found tasty morel mushrooms and she cooked them for us in plenty of butter.
It was the first time I had eaten mushrooms.
I have memories of Jane working at Osh Kosh B’Gosh clothing factory. But that may have been after they moved from Lodi to Kentucky.
I think they came back North at least one time in 1992 or 1993 and the whole family visited me at my house in Wayland, OH.
I can’t recall when I learned she had Parkinson’s but I know she fought a long time. If anyone has any stories or photos they would like to share, I would love
to have them to include herein.
