Sending a prayer for Jane Henson
Jane Henson, born Jane Nebel, was the wife of Jim Henson from May 28, 1959 until his death in 1990. She is also the mother of Jim Henson's five children: Lisa, Cheryl, Brian, John, and Heather Henson.
Nebel and Henson met in a puppetry course at the University of Maryland, College Park, where they were both undergraduates. At the time, Nebel was a senior majoring in art education and Henson was a freshman studying to become a commercial artist. Nebel later became Henson's puppeteering partner on the television show Sam and Friends, and the two eventually married and the rest is history.
Please send a special payer for dearest Jane and her entire family!
