Jane W. Littell, 72, passed away on Sunday, March 14, 2021 in Bayside, Queens surrounded by her loving family, who will continue to honor her legacy by following her example of selflessness and her uncanny ability to make strangers feel like family.
Jane was born on November 27, 1948, in Long Island City, Queens, she was the daughter of the late Rowland and Evelyn Pritchard. Jane met her husband, Arthur (Buster) Littell through a mutual friend in Great Neck, NY in 1967 and married in 1969. They celebrated their 50 year wedding anniversary in 2019.
Jane served as a Property Manager for Metro Management at The Towers at Water’s Edge for just under 30 years, where her overwhelming generosity and compassion were felt amongst the residents and staff. It was evident that she was much more than a property manager, through the deep-rooted relationships she developed during her tenure.
Jane also served on School District #26’s School Board where she was actively involved in advocating for the rights of local community school boards, teachers and parents to have more of a voice over education policies and to limit the power of the city’s central board of education.
In addition to her loving husband, Jane is survived by daughter Karen Littell, son Daniel (Jaime) Littell, brother David (Christine) Pritchard, grandson Brayden Littell, granddog LalaPalozza Littell, niece Sarah (Kevin) Pritchard, and an extended family of friends from every walk of life, all of whom she loved and touched deeply.
