Obituary

Jane Ann Latson (Grosenbacher), a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, neighbor, and friend peacefully passed away surrounded by family on January 21, 2023, at the age of 74. Jane was born in San Antonio, Texas on October 15, 1948, and raised by parents Fred and Ella Grosenbacher. While Jane's 34 years in Texas established her deep Texan roots and her love for bluebonnets, she never wanted to leave the flora and fauna of Georgia once the family moved to Atlanta in 1985.

While in Texas, Jane married her true love, Skip, in 1981, bringing together two wonderful families and creating a new united one of five loving children, along with Jane’s passionate, strong-willed mother, Ella. The family moved to Charleston, South Carolina in 1982 and then to Atlanta in 1985, adding their daughter, Amanda, to this dynamic family soon after their move.

Skip and Jane’s 42 years together were anchored by their love for God and one another. Jane’s happiest family moments were being able to serve her delicious food at holidays, leading and watching the family '“talent” shows at Christmas, hosting the grandkids for cousin’s sleepovers, intensely rooting for the Atlanta Braves, and passing time with Skip in her happy place under an umbrella on the beaches of Hilton Head Island. At home, her backyard was not only a favorite place for the grandkids but a sanctuary for the birds and her beautifully planted hydrangeas.

Perhaps Jane’s greatest gift was her ability to establish true, deep connections with those fortunate enough to have known her. Her gentle touch, long strong hugs, willingness to mentor, thoughtful advice, and genuine interest allowed her to communicate her wisdom in her signature direct, loving fashion. Her numerous long-lasting relationships began developing in elementary school and continued to grow throughout her time in Texas, South Carolina, and Georgia. Jane’s circle of loved ones expanded through her church fellowships and jobs, and with neighbors, family, and friends. Most recently, she attended and served Grace Chapel Church of Christ from 2003 on.

Jane is preceded in death by her father, Fred Grosenbacher; her mother Ella Grosenbacher; and her granddaughter Ava Jane Gibson. Jane is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, Albert “Skip” Latson; six children: Steven Gibson and wife Rachele, of Athens, GA; Ryan Gibson and wife Anne, of Cumming, GA; Kim Oros and husband Chad, of Braselton, GA; Kelley Latson Painter and husband Danilo, of Indiana, PA; Todd Latson and wife Stuart, of Dacula, GA; and Amanda Ramsey and husband Steven, of Cumming, GA; thirteen grandchildren: Lucy and Ella Gibson, of Athens, GA; Grant and Isaac Gibson, of Cumming, GA; Madeline and Elise Alderman, of Hoschton, GA; Nolan and Camille Oros, of Braselton, GA; Alexis and James Latson, of Indiana, PA; Cooper Latson, of Dacula, GA; and Brooks and Callie Ramsey, of Cumming, GA.
