Memorial Services Set at Cedarbrook Community Church in McQuain Murder Case
From Journey's Crossing:Remembering Jane and William

Jane McQuain and her son William McQuain of Germantown, Maryland died tragically on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at ages of 51 and 11. They leave behind family and many close friends. Jane was born on May 21, 1960 in Germany and William was born on June 30, 2000 in Falls Church, Virginia. Jane was the daughter of the late Charles and Brigitte McQuain and is survived by her brother, Bill McQuain.

Jane graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Humanities and lived mainly in the Pennsylvania and Washington DC areas. Having faced adversity many times throughout her life, she always continued to beat-the-odds. When she was given the wonderful gift of William, her life took on new meaning and purpose, always hoping to provide the best possible life for her son.

William was a bright light in the eyes of his mother and everyone he touched throughout his tragically short life. A spirited young boy whose Mother focused his energy toward sports and watched William excel as he became an outstanding athlete. While participating in Cub Scouts, swimming, basketball, baseball and football, his winning personality made him more friends than most kids collect in a lifetime. William was "the cool kid" that everyone wanted to be like and be around, always happy and fun-loving.
