     Jane Dunham was born in Whittier, CA to Gorman V. Rhea and Dorothy M. Imboden. In January 1965 she married Leverett "Skip" Dunham and resided in Whittier until 1967 when they moved to Santa Barbara, CA where they remained for 35 years, raising three children as a proud stay at home mom. After the children went off to college, Jane worked in a variety businesses before settling on her pride and joy, her own retail gift store The Spectrum Gifts in Goleta.  In 2002 Jane and Skip moved to San Diego, County where they resided for 16 years.

     Jane had a heart of gold, to know her was to love her, a very loving person with a great smile, warm hearted, giving, caring and unforgettable. She will be so missed by her family and many friends. Jane is survived by her husband L. "Skip" Dunham, son Richard G. Dunham and wife Missy, son Jason Dunham and wife Jill and their children Justin and Jaci, daughter Gina (Dunham) Allin and husband Kevin Allin, children Kassidy and Addie.

     Jane passed quietly after a long struggle from strokes in 2004 and 2011. She was recently diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and was soon under care from Hospice of the North Coast which lasted but three weeks while she was surrounded by family. There will be a private family gathering and in the spring, a Celebration of Jane's Life.

     Jane lived her life with an intense love of family and friends, quick wit, funny, kind, sweet, lovely spirit, always a smile, spunk, generous and leaves a proud legacy. Jane touched hearts of everyone who knew her, she was loved by so many with great fond memories of a beautiful woman inside and out. Jane we miss you so very much, memories of your amazing life will live in our hearts forever.

     Jane, you have always been an angel, now you have your wings.
