Her obituary stated:
"Died: of consumption, consequent upon the turn of life Jane Small at Greenvale, Dallas County, Iowa, November 20th. 1858, aged 55 years, 2 months and 2 days. The deceased was for many years a resident of the county, where she was highly esteemed for her many good qualities of mind and heart. As a wife she was constant, dutiful and companionable. As a mother she was kind and affectionate. Devoted in all her relations in life, she was no less so as a friend and Christian. There was no affectation of sympathy for the sick or distressed, but a real fellow feeling which evinced itself in acts for their relief. The writer of this, from an intimate acquaintance can attest to her every respect, a model for her sex, and shared in a large degree the love and confidence of her numerous acquaintances.
As a Christian and philanthropist, she was active and hopeful. There was always an air of cheerful resignation about her that inspired her friends with sentiments of the highest respect.
We feel that it is difficult to speak of her in all these qualities-which were peculiarly hers-in language adequate to her worth. She was truly one to remember and imitate in all the duties of life; and we have thus endeavored to record her excellence with feeling of admiration for the same; and no doubt her numerous friends everywhere, will read them with the same pleasurable recollections."
