Jane E Grigger

June 7, 1947 — August 5, 2020

Jane E. Grigger, of Plainsboro, NJ, passed away peacefully on August 5, 2020 after a brief illness with her loving brother John by her side.  She was 73.  Jane grew up in Oreland, PA, the daughter of John C. and Rozanne Peters Grigger and graduated from Springfield Township High School where she was an honor student and flutist in the marching band.  She then attended Bucknell University where she earned her degree in geology and played piccolo in the Bison  Marching Band as well as flute in the Symphonic Band.  She continued her studies at Temple University with a masters degree in Earth Science Education.

After several years in public school science education, she found her life calling teaching earth science in the Middle School of Princeton Day School.  She dedicated her time and energy to her students there, a number of them later becoming life-long friends.  The PDS faculty and staff became her family. Jane retired from full-time teaching after 40 years of service and continued to substitute at PDS and volunteer in the school archives.

Jane’s interests included singing, travel, attending Broadway theater, museums in Washington, Philadelphia, and NYC, reunions with her Camp Hagan friends, and holiday celebrations with her family. Jane leaves behind her brother, Dr. John Grigger and wife Janna, her nieces Joanna Grigger and Anna Abramovich, her nephew Jordan Grigger, her aunt Ruth Grytko, and many cousins.

There will be a viewing for Jane on Tuesday evening, August 11 from 7:30-8:30. Her funeral will be graveside on Wednesday, August 12 at 10:30 am  at Saint Thomas Cemetery, Whitemarsh, PA  19034.  Both events will allow social distancing and require face coverings.  Casual dress, please.
