Jane H. Sibley, 97, of Hamden passed away in January of 2015. She was a talented master gardener and photographer. Jane was active for many years in the New Haven Camera Club, the Charter Oak Photographic Society (where she was an Honorary member and a past President), the Connecticut Chapter of PSA (which became the Connecticut Association of Photographers), and the New England Camera Club Council. Jane loved nature and travel. The photographs she took in her travels earned her numerous photographic awards through the years.
Jane served for many years as a Vice President of the New England Camera Club Council. During those years she presented many educational travel programs at the annual NECCC Conference. The New Haven Camera Club honored her photographic skill and her love of nature by creating the Jane Sibley Nature Award.
The Board of NECCC is very pleased to announce that the New England Camera Club Council, Inc. Memorial Fund recently received a $10,000 donation from the trust established as part of Jane’s estate.
