Jane's Park
"Jane's Park" is a new playground, that is being built and paid for by residents of Bremen. It is a large wooden play structure that will be built on Woodies Lane, amidst the new soccer fields in the extension of Sunnyside Park. It is being named in memory of Jane(Sieg)Stillson, a Bremen resident, Christian mother, and later a pharmacist, who died in February 1999.
Two years ago, Jane was pregnant when she was diagnosed with cancer. She was told by her doctors to abort the child and get cancer treatment immediately, or she would die. She refused to choose her life over that of her unborn daughter, Jessica. Jessica is now a healthy 2 1/2 year old girl. This park is being dedicated to the memory of all parents from our area who died before they had the chance to see their children grow up. It will cost about $ 100,000 in materials and design to build this park. Donations are being accepted at any First Source Bank or at Taper Lock Credit Union, c/o Jane's Park Fund. Tax-deduction receipts will be returned to donations that are sent to the Marshall County Community Foundation, c/o Jane's Park, at 2701 N. Michigan Street,Plymouth, IN 46563.
More information on Jane's Park, and volunteering to help build the park, can be accessed via email to

The Latest on "Jane's Park"
BREMEN _ The bricks that are currently paving South Center Street will be "sold" for $ 100 a piece as a fund-raiser for Jane's Park. The committee that is organizing the construction of the memorial playground met last week and decided on several issues with the park. It will be built May 10 to 14, 2000, on Woodies Lane. The last work day on the playground is Mother's Day, a fitting tribute because the inspiration for the playground is Jane (Sieg) Stillson, a Bremen mother who chose to die so that her unborn child could live. The Town of Bremen donated the bricks from Center Street to the project. For each brick sold, the money will be donated to the cost of the playground, estimated to be about $ 100,000. Each brick will then be engraved with the donor's name and/or the name of a loved one for which the brick is purchased, and then used in a walkway at the playground. For example, a brick may be engraved with two lines, such as, "In memory of Stella Burnett. From the Keith Burnett family." Or, two families may purchase a brick and list both family names. The bricks may be purchased at the new Scrapbook Stop business, at 1008 W. Plymouth St., from the owner-operator, Sandy Muffley. Mrs. Muffley is also designing and creating "Jane's Park Scrapbook" at the store in the Subway Restaurant plaza. If a brick is purchased as a Christmas gift, a certificate will be issued to give to the recipient. Anyone with related photos or miscellaneous souvenirs, or anyone just wanting to see the scrapbook in progress, may see it there. Bricks may also be ordered by calling the coordinators of the playground, Rhonda McIntyre at 546-3759, or Linda Clevenger at 546-5466. On a related matter, the committee decided that individuals or companies that donate at least $ 1,000 to the project will get an engraved brick in the walkway and have their name listed on a billboard at the site of the playground for three months after it is built. In addition, those donors will receive a photograph and certificate, memorializing their donation, to frame and hang in their home or business. The name of the donors will also be publicized and included in the official scrapbook. Jane's Park also has been included in an on-line shopping network that donates a percentage of its sales to Jane's Park. That website is A second website,, also will donate a percentage of its profits to Jane's Park, if the buyer notes in the purchase that it's for Jane's Park. Fund-raising for Jane's Park is now underway. With only one project completed, that being the Bremen Tri-Kappa fund-raiser at the Bremen-Plymouth football game in September, and private donations being made, the committee reported that they have raised almost $ 25,000. The Bremen Lions Club has donated $ 2,000 to the playground. The Psi Iota sorority has donated $ 2,500. The Marshall County Community Foundation is contributing $ 5,000. And giving more than $ 1,000 each were the Tri Kappa sorority and the youth group from St. Dominic's Catholic Church. Digger Specialties, Inc. of Bremen, is donating a polyvinyl fence that will surround the playground. Donations to the playground project may be made to the Jane's Park accounts at any 1st Source Bank, Taper Lock Credit Union, or to the Marshall County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 716, Plymouth, IN 46563.
