JANE CASTANEDO HACKEMACK, wife, mother, grandmother, cousin, and friend, passed away peacefully after a short hospital stay from an inoperable illness on December 19, 2020 in Sugar Land, TX. She was a long-time resident of Richmond, TX. Jane was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, to JANE MURPHY CASTANEDO and LLOYD PETER CASTANEDO on June 30, 1947 at the Touro Infirmary, who preceded her in death, along with her sister, DONNA ANN CASTANEDO, and maternal and paternal grandparents.
Jane is survived by her husband of 45 years, NORWOOD WAYNE HACKEMACK; her son, DR. MICHAEL WAYNE HACKEMACK and his wife, JOHANNA BAZIN HACKEMACK; her grandsons, PETER WAYNE HACKEMACK and JAMES FRANCIS HACKEMACK; her step-mother, EMILY REINHART CASTANEDO; her aunt, NANCY COLLINS MURPHY; and numerous cousins in New Orleans and the surrounding area.
Jane graduated from Bellaire High School, Bellaire, TX, after which she worked in the oil and gas business for many years as an accountant.
Jane’s interests included taking cruises with her husband, Norwood, that took them to the Panama Canal, Alaska, the ABC islands, and others. She was a “serious” shopper and was proud of her designer handbag collection. Jane was a giver and always volunteered at Michael’s schools, Annunciation Orthodox School and Strake Jesuit College Preparatory School in Houston, TX, and Texas A&M University where she was an active member of the Aggie Mom’s Club in Richmond. Jane was always involved with Christmas donations for children in need through the oil and gas companies where she was employed throughout the years.
Most of all, she loved her family and dear friends. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
A private Catholic Christian Mass and burial of her ashes was held at the Greenwood Funeral Home and Cemetery in the Collins plot on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.
