Jane Daisy, 80, of Coloma, MI, passed away at the Hanson Hospice Care center on Tuesday September 29, 2020. Jane is survived by husband Ron, son and daughter-in-law Mark Carlock & Penny Camp of Sodus Township, son Dave Carlock of Benton Township, and sister Margaret Hilbink and brother-in-law Dave of St, Joseph. She is preceded in death by her brother Leroy Hadley.
Jane was born on August 22, 1940 in Benton Township, daughter of the late Clarence and Cloteal Hadley. Local friends may have met her through her work with Whirlpool, New Products, or Shepherd Casters while married to the late Nelson Carlock.
In 1976, Jane was remarried to WHFB’s morning show host Frank Roberts (Prater) and relocated to his family’s hometown of Grayson, KY where she lived happily for 30 years until his passing, working as a tri-county supervisor and addictions therapist for the State of KY, while also serving her community as the mayor’s wife.
After a longtime friend played matchmaker, Jane fell in love with her husband Ron, which drew her back to enjoy her last 14 years with him in Berrien County where she assisted him with his business and loved his companionship, be it on sunny motorcycle rides or simply watching Big Bang Theory at home.
Her loving grandchildren include Jamie Carlock and wife Dawn of Newton, IA; Sara Koon and husband Matt of Gulf Shores, AL; Sean Carlock and wife Erica of Little Rock, AR; and MacKenzie Carlock of Chicago, IL. Great-grandchildren include Alyssa, Ella, and Theodore Carlock, and Brayden, Kambell, & Josiah Koon.
