Jane Cynthia (Fein) Nielsen, 65, of Los Angeles, Calif., died recently after a long illness. Born in Springfield, she was the daughter of late Irving Fein and Lillian Stockser Fein. She moved with her family at age 10 to Longmeadow. She attended MacDuffie School for Girls and graduated from Cambridge School of Weston. She studied in Athens, Greece, before joining an excavation of Masada in Israel in 1964, where she met her future husband, Kjeld Nielsen. In 1965, she studied in the Scandinavian Seminar in Denmark. For the last 26 years she worked as an editor and proofreader in Los Angeles, and did freelance work in art restoration and calligraphy, which included writing props for Hollywood movies, among them “Beloved Immortal” and “The Cat in the Hat.” by Dr. Seuss. During the past decade, she created new fonts called Bartolomeo and Cajole. She is survived by a son, Alexander Peter Nielsen; three grandchildren, Camilla, Jonatan and Lea, of Birkeroed, Denmark; two siblings, a twin sister, Elizabeth Amy Fein, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; and a brother, Paul Stockser Fein, of Agawam.
