Jane L. (Milley) Esposito Standring, 69, longtime Auburn resident, passed away at home on Thursday, October 22, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She made the journey into the arms of God…she will join her loving husband, Paul F. Standring, who died in 2006, and her beloved son, Dameon R. Esposito, who died in 2017.
Jane leaves her loving daughter, Elizabeth L. Allain and her husband, Jeffrey S. Allain, of Auburn; her five grandchildren: Vincent P. Esposito, Victoria L. Esposito, Varissa L. Esposito, all of Leicester, Paris L. Esposito and Connor P. Allain, both of Auburn; her mother, Lillian L. (Lindgren) Milley, of Shrewsbury; her siblings: Carol Armstrong and her husband, Tom, of Waltham, John Milley and his wife, Debbie, of Worcester, Nancy Milley, of Shrewsbury, and Gary Milley, of Cape Cod. She leaves several nieces and nephews, her best friend of 55 years, Gay Gardener, of Worcester, and her former daughter-in-law, Michelle L. Esposito, of Leicester. Along with her husband and son, Jane was predeceased by her father, Richard C. Milley, in 2004.
The most important, special time was spent with her children and grandchildren, who filled her heart with love and joy. They were her gifts from God.
Born in Worcester, Jane was raised in Shrewsbury and graduated from Shrewsbury High School, Class of 1969. She worked for over 15 years at Central One Federal Credit Union where she worked as a loan officer, originating their student loan and VISA programs, until she became ill.
She was an active member of Rainbow Girls in Worcester, Assembly #9, where she earned her majority. Jane loved taking part in all of her children’s activities, especially Cub Scouts and Camp Fire Girls. She was a Camp Fire co-leader for 12 years – “Wohelo!”
Jane was a former member of Fairlawn Methodist Church in Shrewsbury for over 25 years, before transferring to the First Congregational Church of Auburn – she served on many committees, taught Sunday School, and most of all, Jane enjoyed being active in the women’s group. Her faith in God never waivered and she cherished her spiritual time spent reading the Bible.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the First Congregation Church’s Youth Group, 128 Central Street, Auburn, MA 01501.
