Jane D. Cameron
Jane Denise Cameron, 72, passed away at home on March 9, 2020, in Chamberlain, South Dakota, after a long and valiant battle with breast cancer. She was surrounded by her two surviving children (Craig and Denise) and other friends and loved ones.
Jane was born to William Cameron and Macel Cameron (Eggleston) on July 30, 1947, in Faulkton, South Dakota.
Jane was reared in Faulkton until she married at age 18. After her husband (Gary Holler) returned from the Vietnam War, she relocated with him to his family’s dairy farm near Pierpont where Jane had her first child (Dan) and eagerly embraced being a farm wife.
A couple of years later Jane and her growing family relocated to Faulkton, where Gary worked in the Cameron’s Super Valu grocery store and Jane had her second child (Craig). A few years after that they relocated to Chamberlain where Jane and Gary operated their own grocery store. It was in Chamberlain where Jane had her third child (Denise).
After the grocery store, Jane went on to work numerous jobs in Chamberlain and Oacoma, foremost for many decades with the Brule County Sheriff’s office.
Jane’s struggle with breast cancer began when she was in her 40’s. At that time she underwent every treatment available, and the cancer responded by going into remission for almost 22 years! Alas, the cancer returned 5 years ago. With grace and determination, Jane again resisted it by undergoing every treatment available.
Jane had many passions in life, with one of them being music. She excelled at piano at an early age, and went on to learn church organ. For many decades she played for services at the United Church of Christ. Jane also made many, many trips around the country to enjoy concerts and musicals. She also loved ocean cruises, taking many with her son Craig and others.
Jane was extremely blessed when about 3 years ago Denise, Jane’s daughter, moved back home with her young family to help provide care. Jane absolutely adored having so many of her loved ones close by, and especially her beloved granddaughter Jazzlyn!
Jane was preceded in death by her parents; sister Deborah Cameron; and son Daniel Holler. She is survived by her son Craig Holler, Chamberlain; daughter Denise Holler, son-in-law Brian Brown, and granddaughter Jazzlyn Brown, Chamberlain; grandson Dylan Holler, Sioux Falls; grandson William Holler, Webster; granddaughter Susan Holler, Sioux Falls; step-grandson Austin London, Rapid City; grandson Ben Saunders, Springfield, Ohio; sister Julie Smith, Meridian, Idaho; brother Brad Cameron and brother-in-law Terrence Mischel, Denver, Colorado; and many other relatives.
