Jeane Janiga Solsbury, age 94, a long-time resident of Plymouth, passed away on July 14, 2020 at Resthaven Care Center in Holland, MI, of natural causes.
Jeane was born in Detroit, Michigan to the late Frank and Anna Janiga and is survived by her children, James (Therese) Solsbury, Kathleen Solsbury, Kristine (Edwyn) Curtis and Robert Solsbury; grandchildren Emilie (Randy) Duncan, Jennifer (Jeff) Andrist, Melissa (Robert) Gallagher and Andrew (Christine) Solsbury; great grandchildren Emma, Ellie and Abby and her brother Ernest Janiga.

A special thanks to her Resthaven caregivers, Comfort Keepers-Plymouth, Jan & Val and Beacon Hill neighbors whose kindness and understanding helped Jeane continue to lead an independent, full and active life.
