Jane was born on Dec. 11, 1948, at Aurora, the daughter of Albert and Gladys (Nelsen) Grigsby. She grew up on an acreage near Central City. She received her education at Marquette Public Schools and graduated from Marquette High School in 1967. She then worked at the Cornhusker Army Ammunitions Plant at Grand Island to save up money to go to a business college in Omaha. She then returned to the area and worked at the Central City Dairy Queen and at the First State Bank in Hordville.

She was united in marriage to Dalbert K. Kurz on Jan. 9, 1972, at Zion Lutheran Church in Worms. The couple lived and farmed southwest of Palmer and she also worked at the St. Paul National Bank in St. Paul. After the birth of her youngest son, she became a stay-at-home mom, raising her three sons. She later went back into the banking business, working at Five Points Bank in Grand Island for 30 years, retiring in the Fall of 2023.

Jane was a member of Zion Lutheran Church and was involved in a Bible Study Group.

She enjoyed crocheting and attending school activities of her sons and grandchildren.
