Jane Ann (Buzzard) Bourff, 85, of Michigan City, IN, formerly of Huntington, IN, passed away on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at Silver Birch Assisted Living in Michigan City, IN.   

Mrs. Bourff was born on November 25, 1935, in Lancaster Township, Huntington, IN, to Virgil and Lillian (Taylor) Buzzard. In 1951, she and her father moved to Elwood, IN, after her mother’s death to be nearer to the families of her two older brothers. On November 28, 1953, three days after her 18th birthday, she married Kenneth Bourff who was deceased in November 1998. Her and her husband resided mostly in Elwood and Tipton, IN, before moving to Bradenton, FL, where they resided for 21 years.  Jane then moved to Indianapolis and then Michigan City, IN, to be nearer to her daughter.

Jane graduated from Elwood High School in 1953. She enjoyed reading, a good game of Euchre, walking and taking naps. She also relished time she had with her kids and grandkids and so loved time spent with the many friends she made and had throughout her lifetime.

She is survived by one daughter Debra (Jeffrey) Yoder, Long Beach, IN one son, Bryan (Stacy) Bourff, Brentwood, TN; six grandchildren, Jon (Hillary) Yoder, Long Beach, IN, Alyson (Erik) Skurka, Chicago, IL, Kreigh (Kelsey) Bourff, Nashville, TN, Evan (Natalie) Bourff, Orlando, FL, Connor Bourff, Columbus, OH, Chandler Bourff, Ft. Worth, TX; and 6 beautiful great grandchildren, Charles, Martin, Sadie, Harper, Anderson and Beckett.

Along with her parents and husband she was preceded in death by two brothers, Gordon Buzzard, Gerald Buzzard; and her dear partner, Ronald Clark.
