Dr. Jane R. Westerfield

The church has received word of the death of Dr. Jane Westerfield. Jane served First Christian Church as Director of Music from September 1995 through January 2002. She departed this earthly life on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.

After earning her Bachelor of Music degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA, she moved to Kentucky to work on her Masters degree in Church Music from Southern Baptist Seminary. She later earned her Doctor of Arts degree from Ball State University. As a lifelong learner, she often said she would have stayed in school all her life if she could have.

Jane was also a freelance writer, authoring many books including her own original set of children's books about death and grief. She created a poetry book, collaborating with authors on "This One's for the Birds" - a book to raise awareness about an oil spill affecting coastal wildlife. Another book she authored is The Colors of Hope.

As a woman of faith, Jane wished to have a celebration of the immortality promised to all by Christ. She would love to be remembered with funny, strange, or silly stories that celebrate what was good and blessed in her life.
