Marlborough – Jane (Bennett) Bastis, 58, of Marlborough, passed away peacefully Sept. 15, 2019 at the Rose Monahan Hospice Home in Worcester, surrounded by her loving family.
Jane was born and raised in Marlborough, daughter of Arthur C. Bennett and her late mother, Margaret (Logan) Bennett.
Besides her farther, she is survived by her son, Ethan Bastis; two brothers, Michael and Paul Bennett, and their children, Nicole, James, Ariana and Liam, and close Bennett family cousins, Shannon Adams, and Tara Murphy. She is also survived by her aunt, Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Belaska and family, and her uncle, Richard Logan and family.
Over the past six years Jane fought two courageous battles with cancer only to lose the second to an aggressive form of bone cancer. She had a unique passion for animals and is predeceased by too many pet cats and dogs to count. A passionate Patriots and Red Sox fan, Jane enjoyed watching games and cheering on her favorite player, Tom Brady, with her dad and her son.
Calling hours will be held Friday, Sept. 20, from 9-11 a.m., in the Short & Rowe Funeral Home, 95 W Main St., Marlborough. A short service will follow at 11 a.m. in the funeral home. Private family burial will be at Evergreen Cemetery in Marlborough.
