Jane E. (Pedersen) Tumbleson was born on a sunny Friday July 18, 1947 to James and Lillie (Kissner) Pederson in Ipswich. Jane joined sisters Dorothy, Rosene, Emily, and Linda with brother Marcus becoming the youngest member of the family.
Her family lived on a farm just west of Ipswich where she grew up and attended Ipswich Public Schools graduating in 1965.
It was in Ipswich, while working at the bank, she met Don Tumbleson. The couple were married on June 3, 1967 and started their life together. In 1969 son Steve was born, and after a move to Lake Preston, Joanne was born in 1972.
In 1974, one more move brought Jane and family to Mobridge. It was here that she became involved in many activities including P.E.O., different card clubs, and her neighborhood coffee club. She enjoyed her family time, listening to KOLY, watching her favorite TV shows, auction sales, 4th of July parades, her dogs and cats, and flying the flag in her front yard.
Later Jane took on the role of caregiver doing daycare and taking care of her mother, sister, and brother-in-law. This led to a job as a nurses aid at the Mobridge Care Center where she worked for many years. Somehow along the way she started working at Mobridge Regional Hospital as a medical transcriptionist also. It was from this job that she retired from working just a few months ago. Working these jobs brought her much enjoyment along with many friends and a social circle which she loved.
Unfortunately, on Tuesday July 13, 2021, Jane's journey as a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend came to an end on another sunny July day at Mobridge Regional Hospital. She will be deeply missed especially her children and others who loved and knew her.
Jane is survived by her children, Steve Tumbleson, Joanne and Andy Schumacher, all of Mobridge; brother and sister-in-law Marcus and Judy Pedersen of McPherson, Kan.; brother and sister-in-law, Roger and Sharon Peterson of Orion, Ill. Jane is also survived by many nieces and nephews and their families.

Tumbleson, sisters and brothers-in-law, Dorothy and Morris Ernst, Don and Rosene Royce, Emily and Del Sando, and Linda and Ralph Epperly. Also preceding were her in-laws Donald O. and Erlene Tumbleson, Larry and Betty Kieso, and Connie Walburg.
