LUCKOFF: Beloved mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, Jane Luckoff (1939-2021), passed away on Dec. 17 in San Rafael, California, after a long battle with dementia as a result of a brain injury, with her family by her side. Jane was born Jan. 26, 1939, in Pittsburgh, to Rose Adler Fleishman and Martin J. Fleishman. After high school, she moved to Ann Arbor to attend the University of Michigan where she earned a BA in English and met Michael Luckoff, her former husband of over 40 years. Married in 1960, she began her family in Detroit, subsequently moved to Chicago and Los Angeles before settling in Marin County in 1972. Jane would continue her education, earning a master’s degree in counseling from Dominican College. Upon completion, she was very proud of starting her own successful relocation counseling business. Jane was a loving mother, generous and kind with everyone, an animal lover and loyal friend. She enjoyed making others happy, entertaining, and was a consummate volunteer, offering her time to a friend in need and to the community. A talented artist in her own right, Jane enjoyed the rich offering of the arts in the Bay Area and abroad. Her love of travel led her to span the globe visiting six different continents, including her favorite, Africa. Her quick wit, beautiful smile, and bright spirit will be greatly missed. She leaves behind her children, Lynn Luckoff, Nancy Luckoff, Jeffrey (and Eva) Luckoff; her identical twin sister Diane Beckerman; and her grandsons Stephen, Bradley and Bennett Luckoff. She is preceded in death by her mother, Rose White, her father, Martin Fleishman, and her beloved dog Dusty. A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Donations in her honor can be given to Jewish Family and Children Services, and the Schurig Center for Brain Injury Recovery. PJC
