July 27, 1952 — June 21, 2024

Jane Marie Alvernes-Halliday, 71, of Portsmouth, RI, passed away at home on June 21, 2024. She was the wife of the late Robert A. Halliday.

Born in Newport, RI, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Helen (Woehrle) Alvernes.

Jane was a graduate of Middletown High School, and later dedicated herself to her work as a housekeeper at the Grand Islander Nursing Home in Middletown.
