She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt. Jamie was a firm believer of the Lord Jesus Christ and shared her faith through the love she gave to others. She was a natural-born caretaker and nurturer. As the heart of her family, Jamie enjoyed feeding her family; she would always have her cabinets and refrigerator filled to the max to feed anyone who stopped by her home. She was a generous woman who enjoyed expressing her love through gift-giving. Jamie was a hardworking woman in and outside of the home. She will be remembered by her beautiful spirit, infectious laugh and smile, fierce attitude, and astonishing strength and dignity. Her family will miss the deep love, immoveable support, and care she showed to them.
