The name or term "Jane" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Jane (disambiguation).
Janelle Voight was the wife of Todd Voight and was the foster mother of John Connor. She was killed by the T-1000 sent after John. The T-1000 then impersonated her when he killed Todd.
Behind the Scenes
In the script, after killing the dog Max, the T-1000 walks back inside the house to John's room. He passes a bathroom where the real Janelle's legs can be seen through the half-open door. The T-1000 may have killed her while she was (or about to) taking a shower. Todd may have just come home, explaining why he didn't notice anything strange.
John Connor: Todd and Janelle are dicks, but I've gotta warn them. Got a quarter?
