Jane Hayden, 85, of East Haven and Wallingford, passed away on April 6, 2020. She was born October 25, 1934 in Derby to Terrance and Gertrude (Brennan) Gilmartin.

Jane graduated from St. Vincent’s School of Nursing and had a successful career as a Registered Nurse, which she loved. She enjoyed reading, a cup of tea, chocolate, animals, but most of all, she loved spending time with her family and friends. All services are private with the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home, 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven. As you sit and recall Jane’s beautiful life, please picture her holding a glass of scotch in one hand, her pocketbook in the other, talking about swimming at baby hole, JUGS (Just Us Girls), and saying her famous quotes, “That’s so niiiiice!!” and “If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.”
