Born Jan. 21, 1958, in Webster City, Iowa, the daughter of Allen and Mary (Claude) Edvenson, Jane grew up in Webster City.
She graduated from East High School in Des Moines and later received her master's degree in nursing from the University of Iowa.
Jane married Lyle M. Harp on Aug. 4, 1979, in Webster City.
She began working at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in 1979. Holding multiple positions throughout the hospital, Jane made friends in every department in which she worked, or worked with. She was lucky enough to be surrounded by those coworkers and friends during her final days.
Those who knew Jane best knew her passion for animals, especially her granddogs, traveling to new destinations and reading. A loving mom who supported her children and their interests, she excitedly attended sporting events, club meetings and band performances. Jane was an avid art collector and always was adding to her collections from her favorite artists.
Survivors include her husband, Lyle; daughter, Laura Harp of Kansas City, Mo.; son, Kevin (Amanda) Harp of Des Moines; brothers and sisters, Bruce Edvenson (Brenda) of Runnells, Iowa, Jim Edvenson (Linda) of Des Moines and Kay Pederson of Des Moines; several nieces and nephews; and her granddogs, Malcolm, Frankie, Phil, Stampy, Kujo and Kona.
Jane was preceded in death by her parents.
