Emma Jane Hagan (aka) Jane Hagan

 January 17, 1922 – April 15, 2021


Jane Hagan, of Mission Viejo, CA, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2021.

Jane was born to John M Hagan, Sr. and Mary Ervin in Claremont, Virginia.

She was the eldest of three children and is preceded in death by her siblings John M. Hagan Jr. and Alice Hagan Eley. She is survived by niece Dawn Hagan and nephews John Hagan III, Dave Hagan Eley, and Ralph Eley III.

She attended Mary Baldwin College, and worked at Princeton University and Duke University.

Jane was the Art Research Librarian at Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, California for 16 years before her retirement.

She was smart, sharp and had a sense of humor only witnessed by a very few being extremely private. She was always up for an adventure travelling to many countries in the world. Paris was her favorite place.

Jane was an avid fan of the Lakers, the Kentucky Derby, the game shows Jeopardy and the Wheel of Fortune.

She enjoyed and took advantage of the myriad of shows at the theatre in Laguna Woods Village where she resided since 1997 until her move to Olivera Homecare in Mission Viejo in 2019.

St. George’s Episcopal Church in Laguna Hills, CA became her spiritual haven and attended not only the Sunday service but also the Wednesday healing service.

    Rest In Peace, Jane.

  2. Jane was the senior librarian at Brand Library when I started as a page nearly 40 years ago on July 7, 1981. Although I reported librarian Ellen Dworkin, Jane nonetheless was the most elegant & dignified woman I had ever met in my life. I enjoyed working & dealing with her for 3 years until she retired in 1984. We kept in touch throughout the years until my father’s passing nearly 10 years ago on July 5, 2011. I will fondly remember this gracious woman for the rest of my life & treasure all the cards / notes she sent me as though they are bars of gold. God bless you darling Jane! Until we meet again in Heaven!

    1. Raymond, this was a very nice thing you did, I’m sure Mrs. Hagan is smiling at you from Heaven. I’m so glad you are doing OK. I still see Joe Fuchs from time to time, he is doing great too.
