July 24, 1943 – November 14, 2012

Mary Jane left this world to be with her Heavenly Father, quietly and peacefully with her husband and sons by her side.

Born Mary Jane Macaluso (McLewis) in Bryan, Texas, she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

Mary Jane devoted her life to helping others, volunteering in the community, in the Church, and in schools. In 1999, she was named Citizen of the Year for her work in the community. She enjoyed her work with the Circle of Friends, raising money for the 

Children’s Hospital, and especially her work at First United Methodist Church in Pflugerville where she volunteered for many projects, served as one of the campus coordinators, and was proud to be associated with the Servant Angels. When her sons were in school, Mary Jane and husband Ron were co-presidents of the PTA, and Mary Jane was president of the athletic booster club. She helped Ron start several businesses, managed a dinner theater, and worked with the Chamber of Commerce, but more than any of those, she enjoyed being a world class shopper.

Mary Jane was married to Ron, the love of her life, for 47 wonderful years and they had two adoring sons, Blake and wife, Kim, and Jeff and wife, Sonia. She had five grandchildren, Austin, Reagan, Carson, Logan, and Mason. She is also survived by one sister, Annie Daniels and husband, James, and two brothers, Frankie McLewis and wife, Sharon., and Sammy McLewis. She also had many loving nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held for Mary Jane on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.at First United Methodist Church in Pflugerville, 500 E. Pecan Street, Pflugerville. Arrangements are under direction of Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home.
