Jane Eubanks Thomas (AUGUSTA, Ga.)


AUGUSTA, Ga. - Jane Eubanks Thomas, 74, of Augusta entered into the Heavenly Realm on Monday, February 8, 2010 at her home. Jane married Luther Minter Thomas, Jr. on August 30, 1957 (which, she often reminded us, was the hottest day of the year). The couple lived in Richmond, Virginia during Luther's residency. After he completed his residency they spent four years in the Panama Canal Zone, then returned to the area in 1963 making Augusta their home. Being a native of Augusta, Mrs. Thomas attended William Robinson Elementary School, graduated from the Academy of Richmond County and attended Mercer University. She was a member of the Richmond County Medical Alliance, was an active member of Trinity on the Hill United Methodist Church and the ACS Sunday School Class. Jane was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and best friend to many. She was a lover of life, laughter, people, Augusta history, interior design and chocolate. She was a model of love and grace to her family and all those who knew her. Jane is survived by her husband, Dr. Luther M. Thomas, Jr., of Augusta; one son, Dr. Luther M. Thomas III, of Martinez; two daughters and sons-in-law, Elizabeth Jane and Dennis L. Finch of Evans and Susan Thomas and David C.
