Jane M. Buckley

Posted

Jane M. Buckley, 87, died Tuesday, June 25, 2019. She was the wife of the late William J. Buckley and daughter of the late Robert and Genevieve (Foley) Sweeney. She was the beloved mother of Stephen F. Erickson, Joseph E. Erickson, the late Thomas M. Erickson and William J. Erickson; grandmother of Samantha and Christopher Erickson; sister of Robert Sweeney, Edward Sweeney and the late Ann Feehan.

Jane loved spending time with her family and friends in Rhode Island and spending winters in Florida with her grandchildren. She was most proud of the home her four boys grew up in. When asked, she would always quote a local teacher who said, “All children should have a backyard like this.” Holidays and birthdays were especially important and a time for her to feed any and all, including those who happened to stop by for a visit.

Her pastimes were watching game shows on TV and crossword puzzles. She loved the water, especially the ocean, and often would spend a day down at Oakland Beach. Of all the wonderful experiences life had

afforded her, one that surely should be mentioned is a helicopter ride for Mother's Day, which turned into a yearly event.

She was the beloved mother of Stephen F. Erickson, Joseph E. Erickson, the late Thomas M. Erickson and William J. Erickson; grandmother of Samantha and Christopher Erickson; sister of Robert Sweeney, Edward Sweeney and the late Ann Feehan.

Relatives and friends are invited to a Mass of Christian Burial Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. in St. Kevin Church, 333 Sandy Lane, Warwick. Burial will be private at a later date. For information and condolences visit TheQuinnFuneralHome.com.
