When Jane came to America, she brought a weaving loom with her. She was a weaver. She came to marry Eugene, a minister. Jane was born in Ibuki, Japan. Ibuki is too small to see on a map. She immigrated from Japan and arrived at America by airplane, in 1986. It was exciting for her.

Jane's first impression of America was that it was dangerous; shootings, earthquakes, etc. None of her ancestors or relatives came before her. She did weaving for a living in Japan. In America, she supports her husband. When she was a child, she drew pictures for fun because she loved art.
