Jane Carolyn Garver was born October 2, 1923 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia to Davis Leonard Garver and Mary Alice Gertrude Schwalm Garver. She graduated from Duke University in 1944 and married Donald Hewett Sterrett on June 15, 1946.
Here are four successive generations. Sarah Laudenslager is the oldest. In this picture she is second from the left. Her daughter, Ida Kratzer Schwalm is left of her, followed on the right by Sarah's granddaughter, Gertrude Schwalm Garver, and finally by Sarah's great-granddaughter, Jane Garver Sterrett.
Here is Ida Kratzer with her granddaughter and mother. Jane Carolyn Garver is the young girl in the center. Ida Kratzer Schwalm is on the left, and Ida's mother, Sarah Laudenslager Kratzer is to the right.
Here is a Sterrett family picture from the mid 1940s. Top row (L->R): Ethel Sterrett, Eleanor Thompson, Sam Sterrett, Helen Sterrett, Henry Willard Sterrett, Gladys Sterrett, and Helen Dawson.

This photo was taken in 1951 on "fade proof" color film. The original was incredibly yellow, so I had to be creative in restoring it. Shown are Jane and her daughter Donna Jane. The second scan is what it was like to start with.
Here is a Sterrett family photo taken in the late 1960s. Jane is pictured with her husband Don, and two children, Donna Jane and Bruce Davis Sterrett. Also shown is Jane's son-in-law, Joesph George Zeibel.
