Auntie Jane's bio


Auntie Jane is celebrating her fifty-third wedding anniversary! Married in 1959 to her childhood sweetheart who had been her boyfriend since they were 13 years old!  (The Foncies photo was taken sometime about 1957)  They went to Hawaii on a propeller plane which took 12 hours to get there! Then settled in to marriage and the raising of two children, a boy and a girl.

In 1974, wanderlust invaded their comfortable North Vancouver life and they sold their house, packed up the children and headed for Europe for a year of travel in their own car. A BMW bought on European delivery plan. Eventually visiting 36 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia before returning to North America and Vancouver. This extensive travel has exposed Jane to many cultures and people around the globe and a huge variety of cooking and cuisines. She became an excellent cook, originating her own recipés and currently fills her larder each summer with the canning of local fruits and vegetables and much experimenting with quality food. Firmly believing in buying local using natural foods without additives, she originated her own product, Auntie Jane's Good Stuff after raves from family, many friends and buyers.

She has worked in various occupations throughout her life, from retail food cashiering to operating her own business of two art galleries to becoming Retail Operations Manager for a coffee chain. Still making time to study psychology. She has also become a successful actress in many TV commercials.

Jane now delights in her two grandchildren, a boy and a girl.

Today Auntie Jane is available for consultation via email at her other website, regarding the many problems facing people as they struggle to cope with their personal lives. A unique site that stresses the independence of all women to find their own way.


However Jane's heart has always centered on good healthful eating and making the delicious foods she has become known for;  Red Rocket Salsa, Genghis Khan Relish, Pahoehoe Sauce, Montepulciano Wine Jelly, Green Hornet Dills, Thermate Hot Sauce and many more sweet or savoury creations. 

A planned trek of the Camino de Santiago del Compostela in Northern Spain next year will surely result in some new and exciting tapas ideas for Auntie Jane's Good Stuff.
