Remembering Jane Teasdale Buzzell

Jane Teasdale Buzzell ’50, of State College, Pennsylvania, passed away on August 12, 2021. She was a 1950 graduate in dietetics. During her time at the University of Wisconsin, Jane met future husband John Buzzell ’48, and they married on August 19, 1950. Family and service are Jane’s legacy. As she raised three children, Jane was also active as a community and church volunteer. Jane enjoyed the creativity and camaraderie of her State College quilting group, where she made dear friends (and beautiful quilts) for more than 20 years. She loved gardening, knitting, quilting, and cooking. A dedicated old-fashioned letter writer, Jane maintained lifelong pen pals, including a “round robin” group of twelve college friends who wrote letters for seven decades. Sadly, Jane was the last of that group of correspondents. She will be dearly missed by friends, family, and community.
