In memory of Jane Richter
The Kent County Golf Classic is played in memory of M. Jane Richter. After Jane’s passing in 2014, it was decided to dedicate the DFRC Blue-Gold Kent County Golf Classic as homage to Jane’s hard work, outstanding character, and to continue her legacy. During the 1960s, Jane joined the DFRC Blue-Gold Statewide Committee, putting forth her best effort to sell tickets for the DFRC Blue-Gold All«Star Football Game and solicit ads for the Game’s Yearbook. Her influence was powerful and Kent County was represented in increasing numbers and with great integrity. In 1972, Jane was asked to join the DFRC Board of Trustees, on which she served until requesting to retire in 2014.
In 1988, DFRC introduced a new initiative with the first DFRC Blue-Gold Golf Classic in New Castle County. Jane realized the diversity of DFRC’s outreach with the golf crowd and she valiantly initiated and led the golf classic in Kent County for the last 22 years. No matter what Jane did, she worked with great energy and enthusiasm, but maintained the quiet humility of the unpretentious individual she was.
She was a faithful servant who was devoted to the cause and to the people with whom and for whom she crusaded. The passing of Jane Richter from this earth will be felt throughout the entire state of Delaware, and most definitely within the DFRC family….forever.
