Helen 'Jane' Fairchild - Rochester
Jane (Brubaker) Fairchild was born in 1932 in Litchfield, Illinois, and grew up in Waggoner and Farmersville, Illinois. She discusses her experiences at a one-room school and other childhood and young adult experiences. She received a bachelor’s degree in education/home economics from the University of Illinois in 1953, and married Meryl Robert Fairchild on October 24, 1954. Since Meryl was a lifetime third generation farmer, most of Jane’s life was tied to farming as well.
