Her great-grandfather, Byron Rule, was one of the community members involved in the effort to get the (German) Reformed Church to establish Heidelberg in Tiffin. Jane’s grandmother, Jennie Rule, graduated from Heidelberg in 1891, and married E.C. Brundage, who also attended Heidelberg. Their son, Rule Brundage graduated from Heidelberg in 1922, Jane graduated from Heidelberg in 1952, and married William Wickham who graduated from Heidelberg in 1951.
