Jane Marie Gruener, 92, passed away on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, at her daughter's home, where she had been living. She was born Dec. 9, 1921, in Los Angeles to Spanish-American War veteran Michael Sailer and Elizabeth Schermerhorn.
Jane was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Leonard F. Gruener, and her other daughter, Susan Gruener. Jane and Leonard exchanged vows in 1941 and shared 72 years of marriage. More than 20 of those years were spent in Golden Valley, where they built a home overlooking the valley to enjoy their golden years.
Jane is survived by four children: her daughter, Margaret Lippincott of Kingman; her sons, Fred Gruener of Huntington Beach, Calif., Gordon Gruener of Kingman and William Gruener of Ventura, Calif.; eight grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.
