Jane E. Sarges
March 21, 1943 - August 30, 2017

Jane Elizabeth Sarges, age 74, died on Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

Jane Elizabeth Porter was born on March 21, 1943 in Haifa, Israel to Alfred and Ann (Leszkowicz) Porter. Growing up, Jane attended several schools in Europe and Canada before moving to the United States. Following high school, she continued her education at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT, majoring in languages. While at UConn she met and fell in love with Robert Nathan Sarges after nearly running him over with her car.

Jane and Robert were united in marriage on January 3, 1963 in Yonkers, NY. Jane and Robert lived in several communities on the East coast before settling down in Sioux Falls, SD in 1970. Jane and Robert were blessed with three children: Morgan, Jennifer and Rob. While raising the children, Jane worked as a private caterer and as a Pharmacy Technician for nine years at Sioux Valley Hospital. Her love of photography led her to work at Johnson Photography until her retirement in 2005.

Jane won several awards for her photographs depicting nature and life in South Dakota. She also designed her own line of photo greeting cards. In addition to photography, Jane enjoyed keeping up with her language skills in Hebrew, French, and German; reading; listening to music; and sharing her life with her cats. She was a gourmet cook and baker; her Dobos torte was deliciously legendary. She also enjoyed crafting, sewing, interior decorating, designing beautiful flower arrangements, and gardening. Above all she loved spending time with her family and friends, especially her two grandchildren. Jane was a loving wife, mother, sister, nana, mina, aunt, cousin and friend who will be dearly missed.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband of over 50 years, Robert N Sarges of Sioux Falls, SD; three children: Morgan Sarges of Darwin, Australia, Jennifer Covey of Washington State, and Rob Sarges and his wife, Cheryl of Marion, IA; two grandchildren: Ashley Sarges of Harrisburg, SD and Gabriel Sarges of Marion, IA; half-brother, Steven Hirth of New York, NY, half-sister, Liora Cannon of Glastonbury, CT; nephew, Ian Cannon of Glastonbury, CT; and Jane’s beloved cat, Cielo.

Jane is preceded in death by her father, Alfred Porter; and mother and step-father, Ann and Emanuel Mike Hirth.
