On Friday May 4th Jamiea Rae Jarvis passed away at the age of 65, after years of numerous health problems. Jamie was born August 15, 1952 to Keith DeWayne and Beulah Marie Jarvis. After her sister Julie was born, Jamie’s birth surprised her parents, who didn’t know they were expecting twins. They were the second set of twins born in the Hugoton hospital.
After graduating from Rolla High School in 1971, she went to get her associate’s degree from Rick’s College in Rexburg, Idaho. She earned her LPN certification and was a practicing nurse in pediatrics for many years. She said she loved working with the kids because they were more her size. She took a break from nursing to serve a year and a half full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Referring to that time she spent fully dedicated to serving the Lord and others, she would often say it was the best time of her life.
After her mission she continued to work and live in Idaho for a few years until she decided she wanted to live closer to family. She moved to Amarillo and then to Hugoton, where she resided until her death.
In Kansas, before her health deteriorated, she worked as a nurse for a short time in Elkhart hospital and then as a private home health care provider.
Jamie loved her dogs, cooking, reading, and writing poetry. You could always count on a thoughtful letter from her.
She is now free of the pains and limitations she had on this earth and gone to live in Heaven with her beloved family members who have already passed on before. She is preceded in death by her mother Beulah and brother Mark. She leaves behind her father Keith, sisters Julie and Lana, sister-in-law Terri, 5 nieces and nephews, and 21 great-nieces and nephews.
Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 10:30 AM at Richfield Cemetery, Richfield, KS.
The family would like to thank all who have helped during this time with funeral preparations, meals, gifts, cards, prayers and other thoughtful acts of service.
Friends may call Tuesday 10 AM to 8PM at the funeral home.
Paul’s-Robson Funeral Home, Hugoton is in charge of arrangements.
