Jane was born on August 11, 1959 in Milwaukee, WI to Walter and Mary (Vilbrandt) Glatzel. She graduated from Washington High School in Milwaukee. She obtained an Associates degree in business.

In her retirement, she was the office manager at Lakeside Boat Rentals & Storage.

Jane enjoyed spending time with her family & close friends.

She also was an avid reader and the master of crossword puzzles.

Jane is survived by her husband, Jerry Solem, whom she married on November, 28, 1998. They enjoyed traveling, pheasant hunting, fishing in Canada, and coffee on the deck every morning. She is also survived by her children that she brought into the marriage, Dawn (Erik) Foat (Appleton, WI), Jenna Compton (Appleton, WI), David Meade (Stevens Point, WI), and Jarred (Abby) Meade (Appleton, WI), as well as her step-children Hope (Bill) Haberkorn (Fort Collins, CO), Jeff (St. Croix, MN), Johnny (Jr.) Solem (Plover, WI), and Robert Solem (Minocqua, WI).
