In Remembrance – Jane Lobdell

Phyllis Gordon and Wendy Davenson

Jane Lobdell

Jane Lobdell, LMFT, unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, July 14, 2012 from complications related to lung cancer treatment.

As Director of Naugatuck Youth and Family Services, Jane supervised many Southern Connecticut State University MFT interns as well as interns from other MFT programs. Many students will remember her for her warm yet astute, supervision direction. Recently Jane had begun to teach the AAMFT Approved Supervisor course, continuing to show her dedication to the profession and therapist personal growth.

As CTAMFT’s President from 2005-2007, Jane directed the Association in the hiring of a dynamic lobbyist, whose presence ensured the progress of CTAMFT’s mission to improve the professional lives of Connecticut’s marriage and family therapists.

Jane’s CT license plate read “BAMBI”. That is what Jane’s grandchildren called her. When a grandmother puts her ‘grandmother’ moniker on her license plate, that speaks volumes about the love of her! Jane had many friends in many venues. She touched everyone with whom she worked, taught, volunteered, befriended. She will be sorely missed but remembered with many smiles!

Jane lived her life with honesty, integrity, and love. Jane’s legacy to all who crossed her path includes being enriched by her wisdom, spirit, humor and heart. Because she was teacher, mentor, friend, mother, and hero to hundreds of us, we will keep her memory alive and vibrant. As she lived in life, may she live in death.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her mother and sister, son Sean and his fiancée Soraya, daughter Alicia and her husband RIck, grandchildren Libby and Jake and to those with whom she worked most closely at Naugatuck Youth and Family Services.
