Very little is known about Jane’s life. Apparently she grew up in the Los Angeles area. She married, divorced, and re-married a guy named Craig Baker. She had two children, of which almost nothing is known. And I’ve read her husband died in a drunken car crash, of which she blamed herself and felt heavy guilt over — though that might be just a legend. . . She’s was likely just one more faceless person living on the fringe of society who would have been completely forgotten if she hadn’t been forever immortalized in Charles Bukowski’s writing.
