They had a daughter Pat whom Jane brought up without Victor until his return to the country when she was nearly 4 years old.

Unable to cope well with life on her own and starting to become quite frail Jane spent the remaining years of her life, first at Maes y Wennol Residential Home and more recently at Crosfield House, Rhayader where she was looked after by a team of caring and understanding staff.
