Jane Micol Schatzman, 62, was born in Valdese, North Carolina to Mildred and Victor Micol. She was a graduate of Valdese High School and Surry County Community College. She entertained thousands during her 20 year career as a flight attendant with Piedmont Airlines starting in 1982 and continuing with U.S. Airways until her retirement in 2002. She was a renowned cook who loved to entertain. Her flair and panache are legendary. Her recipes for Filet Mignon and Pears En Croute were featured in Southern Living. She loved her family and most of all her husband Bill of 23 years. She was his steadfast anchor, life’s joy and constant reminder of the importance of humility. On Friday, June 6th, Jane suffered a heart attack and gently passed away at her home in Winston-Salem.

Schatzman; brothers Larry Micol of Lexington, South Carolina and Colonel Victor Micol of Anchorage, Alaska; daughters Jami Simpson of Southport, North Carolina and Brandy Simpson of Rock Hill, South Carolina; stepchildren William Schatzman of Winston-Salem and Susan Schatzman of Charlotte.
