Jane Mitchell Gabler Budenstein

1932-2017

Our beloved mother, Jane Mitchell Gabler Budenstein, went home to God on November 30, 2017. Jane passed away peacefully at Bay Medical Center in her favorite vacation town, Panama City, Florida. She devoted her life to her family, Auburn University and a variety of hobbies. Her iris gardens, Auburn University Women’s basketball, art, travel and her family gave her tremendous joy. Jane is remembered by her family for her generosity, the delight she took in the hobbies she enjoyed, and her enthusiastic pursuit for excellence in every endeavor.

Jane is survived by a sister, Mrs. Rosemary Gabler Woodring of California, and her five children: Mr. Steve Earl Carson and wife Joanne Carson of Lake Tahoe, Nevada, Mr. Samuel Allen Budenstein and wife Robyn Savage Budenstein of Augusta Georgia, Mr. David Franklin Budenstein and wife Leeanne Budenstein of Niceville, Florida, Mrs. Rebecca Ruth Budenstein Wynne and husband Robert Junior Wynne of Auburn, Alabama, and Miss Jennifer Alice Budenstein recently of Panama City Beach, Florida.  Jane is also survived by a niece and nephew, 10 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.

Jane was preceded in death by her loving husband, Dr. Paul Philip Budenstein; beloved sister, Ann Gabler Shade, and her parents Mr. Ernest Lang Gabler and Mrs. Mary Mitchell Gabler.

Jane was born in Holyoke, MA March 19, 1932 and grew up in several Northeastern locations, yet considered her hometown to be Waynesboro, PA. She came to Auburn, Alabama in 1958 with her own young family, husband Paul and sons Steve and Samuel.  Jane earned two Masters degrees from Auburn University and embarked on a long career as a Guidance Counselor at AU in the College of Arts and Sciences. She was especially proud to have assisted thousands of students over the years obtain their dream of a college degree. Jane especially loved Auburn University and her final days were brightened by the Auburn Tigers football victory over Alabama on November 25th. Jane and daughter Jennifer Alice were steadfast supporters of AU Women’s basketball, attending every home game for almost 10 years.
