Jamie L. Bax Obituary
Jamie Lynn Bax, nee Watson, 31, Washington, passed away Friday, Feb. 1, 2019.

Jamie was born June 3, 1987, in Washington, to Chuck Watson and wife Lynn, nee Remillard. Jamie attended Our Lady of Lourdes Grade School and graduated from St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in 2005. She continued her education at Maryville University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design.

Jamie was united in holy matrimony to Jarrod Michael Bax June 18, 2011, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, and the couple made their home in Washington. Among many things, Jamie and Jarrod enjoyed traveling together any chance they had, watching movies together and taking care of their beloved cairn terrier, Josie. Jamie found great joy in her career as a graphic designer and social media manager at the Missourian Publishing Company. She was a lector at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, and a member of the Washington Jaycees and Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network.

Jamie found enjoyment in a variety of activities and hobbies throughout her life. She was involved in theater in high school and continued to enjoy theater as an adult. She loved turtles and dogs of all shapes and sizes. She enjoyed crochet, photography, especially taking photographs of birds, art of all kinds, singing and listening to an eclectic variety of music, and she was an avid reader. Her family often described Jamie as "an old soul in a young body." She loved learning traditional skills and hobbies such as crochet, watching old movies and baking for her family and friends.
