Jane Boynton Angus
Jane Boynton Angus passed from this life on January 5, 2019 with her family by her side.  

She was born to Wes Boynton and Lillian ‘Sis” Pearce Harrer.  Jane and her brother, John and sister, Tillie lived on T Quarter Circle Ranch and other than when she spent a year at business school in San Francisco, Jane lived on the ranch until she retired in 1999. 

On September 1, 1950 she married Hank Angus, the love of her life and best friend.  Jane and Hank had three children, Rita, Nancy, and John.  

Hank and Jane loved horses and cattle. They ran Hereford cross cattle for many years before transitioning to Brahma crosses. Jane also had race horses and loved a good horse race. Jane loved to have a match race and was always wanting to race with her grandkids. Jane also loved to go to team ropings and watch Hank in the ranch rodeos.

 Jane and Hank loved to go to Phoenix for the winter and spend it roping and making great memories with friends. 

Jane loved to travel and was always ready to go on a trip. She took many trips with her friends and daughter, Nancy, niece, Merry Duggan and her sister Tillie. 

One of her favorite places was Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Jane also took several trips with her god-daughter, Julie Tipton.  Jane loved to tell you about all the places she had visited; Fiji, New Mexico, Hawaii, Georgia, multiple trips to Mexico and Ireland to just name a few of the places she has travelled. Jane loved art in all forms and she and her god-daughter, Maryanna Enochson travelled to many art shows.  

Jane worked hard, she loved a little bit of gossip, enjoyed good stories and laughter with family and friends. Jane loved to have a Pepsi or a Coke cola with you. Her door was always open and she loved to greet you with a Whoohoo. 

Jane loved the outdoors and always had beautiful flower beds that she diligently cared for. She also loved her dogs. She loved to have a little dog sitting on her lap. She also loved to tell you she didn’t like cats, but always had a cat that needed to be rescued around. 

Jane was a cowgirl from the time she was little. She spent more time horseback than she ever did driving a car. Jane and her siblings took care of the ranch, along with going to school. They rode to school every morning from the ranch to a corral near Scotts Shady Court and then they walked the rest of the way to school, which is now the Winnemucca Grammar School. Jane also helped with the Humboldt County Rodeo Queens, the High School Rodeos, and many Friday Night Ropings. 

Jane also coached many kids in High School Rodeo and 4-H Horse Shows. 

 She was preceded in death by her husband, Hank Angus, brother John Boynton, daughter Rita Joan and son John Henry. 

She is survived by her daughter, Nancy and son in law, Frosty Tipton. Her sister, Tillie Gentner, niece Merry Duggan (Scott) and great niece, Kelley along with nephew Tom (Alexis) Gentner. Jane had 3 grandchildren, Katie (Brandon) Nuffer, Karla Tipton and Guy Tipton. Jane also had two great granddaughters Gemma Jane and Ruby Adelle, that fondly nicknamed her “GG” which many friends and family also called her. 

 Jane’s family would like to extend many thanks for the love, care and support Jane has received this past year from the caregivers at Fernley Estates Memory Care.
