|Jane Ann Grund
September 16, 1945 – October 18, 2020
Jane Ann (Snider) Grund was born on September 16, 1945 in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Max and Edythe
Snider. Jane grew up in Knightstown, Indiana. After graduating from Knightstown High School, she
attended Indiana University, Bloomington, and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in
Sociology. Jane married James H Grund in 1965 and later moved to Peru, Indiana to raise their
children. The family spent wonderful summers in Culver at “the lake” when the children were young.
Lake Maxincukee was Jane's “happy place,” and Jane moved to Culver permanently, as year round
resident, in 1995.
Jane had many occupations over the years... in human resources, management, real estate, marketing,
and most recently as director of the Lake Maxinkuckee Association. Jane led a very active life –
waterskiing and running were two of her favorite pursuits. Jane shared her love of the lake with
everyone, teaching kids to swim & waterski, or driving her “big red boat” for skiing and tubing. “Come
back anytime” was always her parting sentiment to visitors. Jane was a licensed private pilot, as well
as a certified flight instructor. If she had a second “happy place,” it would be in the skies. In the rare
moments when she did sit still, usually at the end of the dock, she enjoyed reading.
Jane is survived by her children Jama Anne (Grund) Lidral and James David Grund, daughter-in-law
Shawna Grund and grandchildren Joseph Lidral, Hannah Lidral, Aaron Lidral, Mallori Grund, and Maci
Grund. She was preceded in death by her parents Max and Edythe Snider, and her sister, Mary Snider.
