JANE STEPP WARREN

WARREN JANE STEPP Beloved wife, daughter, and friend, died on December 8, 2012 in Grosse Pointe. She was born to James and Lois Stepp on August 6, 1927 in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Jane's parents and her sister Betty predeceased her. Jane graduated from Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio with a bachelor's degree in English. It is there that she met her future husband, Alfred S. Warren, Jr. They married on July 1, 1950 at Jane's home church in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Early in Al's career with General Motors, Jane and Al spent ten years in Buffalo, New York. During that time Jane served as the secretary to the chair of the Philosophy Department at the University of Buffalo. Due to Al's career with General Motors, Jane and Al moved thirteen times before settling in Grosse Pointe in 1973. Jane soon became involved in the community, especially with her church, Grosse Pointe Memorial. Jane served on nearly every committee at Memorial through the years. She was an elder, serving on the church's session for several terms. She was very active in Presbyterian Women, serving as moderator not only at her church but also for the Presbytery of Detroit. Jane cherished the friendships she made through Presbyterian Women. She attended regional and national events sponsored by Presbyterian Women, where she reconnected with old friends and made many new ones. Jane was also a member of several organizations in the community. Among those most special to her were the Detroit Industrial Arts Society, the Grosse Pointe Farm and Garden Club, and the Theater Arts Club. She and Al were members of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club for many years. Most recently they were members of the Grosse Pointe Club, where they enjoyed meeting friends for dinner. In 1992 Jane received the Distinguished Service Award from Muskingum College in recognition of her exemplary service to society. Both Jane and Al loved to travel, especially to the farm and game reserve they owned in South Africa. Following Al's retirement as Vice President of Labor Relations for General Motors, they were able to stay in South Africa for several weeks of the year. Jane delighted in photographing the animals that she encountered on their visits. Jane is remembered as a generous, thoughtful, devoted, and grace-filled person who loved God, her church, her many friends, and most of all, her husband Al. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, December 13 at 1 p.m. at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church, 16 Lakeshore Drive, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. Visitation and a reception will take place following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jane's memory to Grosse Pointe Memorial Church.
