Jane Beach Freestone, 71, passed away on April 29th, 2022 in Mesa, Arizona. Born in 1950 to Eugene and Mary (Stauffacher) Beach in Monroe, Wisconsin, she grew up in cities all over the United States and the world as the daughter of an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel. She was a beloved sister to older brother Joseph Beach (Janis) and younger brother David Beach (Ann).  In 1975, she married Paul Freestone and became an instant mother to Jennifer Nicole Givens (Jason) of Bella Vista, AR. They then had son Michael Freestone (Heidi Reetz) of Moss Beach, CA and daughter Lindsay Johnson (Zac) of Fallbrook, CA. Her six granddaughters were her pride and joy, and she loved each of them dearly. Jane was active through her entire adult life, always seeking and conquering new challenges. She mastered any career she stepped into, including running her own thriving commercial art business, writing as a journalist, and working with students with special needs. In retirement, she served others through Kiwanis and as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in foster care. Jane made dear friends in every city she lived in through her adult life, from the University of South Carolina; to Washington, D.C.; Mesa, Arizona; San Diego, California; and New Braunfels, Texas. All who knew her, adored her and her energetic spirit. A memorial reception will be held on Saturday, July 2nd at 10:00am at Gilbert Memorial Park – 2100 E Queen Creek Road, Gilbert, AZ.

    I was so sorry to learn about Jane’s death. We were Alpha Delta Pi sorority sisters at the University of South Carolina. We got together after we graduated when we both lived in Northern Virginia. My maiden name was Irene Norris or Renie which was my nickname.

    Jane served as a CASA Court Appointed Special Advocate for foster children in New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, and I had the good fortune of being her CASA Supervisor. I not only served with her but became her friend. Jane was a wonderful advocate for children and their needs and always testified very effectively in court. I really admired her kindness and expertise. And, she made me the most beautiful hand painted Christmas cards that were a joy to receive. I missed her when they moved and am sorry to hear of her passing.
