Ella Jane Treece

May 8, 1935 — February 21, 2024

Asheboro

Ella Jane Treece, 88, of Asheboro passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at Clapps Convalescent Nursing Home.

Ms. Treece was born in Norman, NC on May 8, 1935, daughter of the late Thomas David Treece, Sr. and Lela Dennis Treece. Jane worked for many years for B.B. Walker Shoe Company, later working as a salesclerk at JCPenney. Jane was a longtime faithful member of New Hope Community Church where she was active in all church events. Ms. Treece loved children and was a Sunday School teacher at New Hope for 49 1/2 years. She always was appreciative of the opportunity to teach Sunday School and saw it as a way to give back to others. Jane, as well as her sister Betty, attended every Copperhead and Legion Baseball game, as well as many other community events, as long as their health permitted. Ms. Treece loved nature and spending time outdoors, tending to her flowers and her yard. Jane loved life; however, the Christmas season was particularly special to her. She found great joy in going to local Christmas programs and giving gifts to children.

In addition to her parents, Ms. Treece was preceded in death by her brother, Thomas David Treece, Jr. and her sister, Betty Ann Treece.

Jane is survived by several cousins and dear friends, Wendy Blake Thompson and husband Wyatt of Asheboro and Regina Blake Johnson and husband Darren of Randleman.
