Jane Barbe passed away July 18 from cancer.

So who the hell is Jane Barbe? She’s one of those people you didn’t know you knew. If you ever dialed a phone number that was disconnected or dialed it wrong then there’s a 90% chance you heard her voice and if you ever dialed up time or the weather on your phone then the chance was around 60% that her voice provided you with the info you were seeking. She was the Queen of phone recordings in a career that spanned 40 years.

  1. Isn’t it sad that she had to die for us to learn her name?  You just don’t think of those people until they’re gone, but once they die you’re like, “Aw, man, that’s the passing of an icon!”

    I think I’m going to go google the name of the “You’ve got mail” guy and the On-Star chick…just seems like the right thing to do.
