Jane Victorine

Jane Victorine, 79, of Wellman, formerly of Kalona, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

A Celebration of Life for Jane Victorine will be held Saturday, July 17, 2021, at 3:30 PM at the Peterseim Funeral Home in Kalona. The service will be available via Livestream at the Beatty Peterseim Facebook Page.  Inurnment will follow at the Nutmeg Cemetery north of Richmond.  There will be an open house Hawaiian-style meal and fellowship from 5-7 PM at English River Chapel (formerly Niff's Nature Nook) in the residential house 1370 Hwy 1, Kalona. Remembrances may be made in the form of contributions to your favorite charity in Jane’s name.

Jane Kalahoaalohaaloha (Benito) Victorine was born November 20, 1941, in Kukuihaele, Hawaii, the daughter of Clemente and Jane Benito. She graduated from high school and attended Brigham Young University, Hawaii. Jane moved to Iowa in the ‘70s and worked in production at IMPACT in Washington, in production at Sheller Globe, now United Technologies Automotive (UTA) in Iowa City, in food services at Pleasantview Nursing Home, and in production at CIVCO Medical Instrument Company in Kalona, before retiring.

She was an intensely caring and funny person. Friends and strangers were frequently reminded how special and loved they felt when they were in her presence. Her faith in the Lord was strong, and she taught many generations to know the Lord. She was a member of the Shiloh church and enjoyed cooking Hawaiian foods, singing, sewing, caring for plants, and studying God’s Word.

Preceding Jane in death were her parents and five siblings: Clarence Benito, Alice Oliviera, Ralph Benito, Wayne Waipa, and Ray Waipa.

She is survived by four siblings: Rose Arvidson of San Jose, CA, Ginger Ohumukini of Bakersville, CA, Mark (Shirley) Ohumukini of Hawaii, Wesley (Marilyn) Kalei of Hawaii, a number of nieces and nephews, and her dog, Moki.
