Jane Claire Shrader

February 18, 1935 — November 11, 2023


Jane Claire Field Shrader, 88, passed away peacefully on November 11, 2023, in Burnet, Texas after a long illness.

Memorial services will be held at Sneed-Carnley Funeral Chapel Lampasas on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, at 10 am.  Interment following will be private.

She was born on February 18, 1935, in Many, Louisiana and spent her childhood in rural Louisiana.  She met the love of her life, Dan Shrader, while they were attending Stephen F. Austin State University.  They were married July 11, 1955, and moved to Mineral Wells, where Dan worked for Texas Power & Light.

They had two daughters, Lisa and Amy and lived in the DFW area until moving to Lampasas in 1971.  Jane worked as secretary to the Deputy Post Commander at Ft. Hood for nine years.  Later, she worked with her husband at their business, Hoffpauir-Shrader.  The Shraders were members of First United Methodist Church.

Jane most loved being a mother and wife and will be remembered for her creative, delicious meals, especially her Italian Cream Torte Cake.  Blessed with a glorious smile, chic style and a talent for sewing, Jane was always impeccably dressed, even on family camping trips!  Jane was known for her friendly, happy nature and Dan used to say, "She never met a stranger."  Jane and Dan were avid dancers and loved their home in Meadowlakes and dancing at the club on weekends.

She had an adventurous spirit which led her to many travels in Europe with her family and friends.  It was Ireland that captured her heart and she loved her trips there.  She is reunited with her "Danny Boy" at last.

Jane was preceded in death by her husband, her brother and sister-in-law, Sonny and Norma Field and her brother-in-law, RM Smith.

Jane is survived by her daughters, Lisa Garanflo and husband Scott of Rockport, Amy Davis and husband Ronny of Burnet; her granddaughter, Lillie Ballejo and husband Michael; her grandson, Shrader Davis and wife Jourden; great-granddaughter, Lucy Jane; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Marcus and Becky Jordan; sister-in-law, Ann Smith, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Her family is eternally grateful to the amazing people who cared for her at The Oaks in Burnet.  Dixie, Tina, Katy, Martha, Pat, Leanne, and others gave her so much love.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
