Jane Reed Goslin, 89, of Berwyn, a librarian and homemaker, died Friday, Nov. 2, of natural causes at home.
Born in Riverton, Burlington County, Mrs. Goslin was raised on a farm in Paoli and later lived in Wayne. She graduated from Radnor High School in 1942 and attended Georgetown Visitation College in Washington in the mid-1940s.
In 1947, she married John G. Goslin Jr. The two met at the Sunnybrook Ballroom in Pottstown.
Early in their marriage, the Goslins paid $25 a month to rent a dilapidated 200-year-old stone house in Devon. Her husband repaired the rotting stairs and floors and installed electricity, said their son, John G. Goslin III. Before that, a coal stove was used for heat and cooking.
