Mrs. Jaynne Gott of Port Angeles passed away at the age of 83 from age-related causes.
She was born in Independence, Missouri, on August 9, 1930, to Dean Ferguson and Fava Ruth Cairns.
She married Lieutenant Charles L. Gott, the love of her life, on May 15, 1949, in Nevada, Missouri. The couple were together for 61 happy years.
Jaynne received her associate degree in nursing from Shoreline Community College in Seattle, Washington, in 1981. She used this experience to work at Children's Hospital in Seattle.
Ordained as a deacon in the Episcopal Church in 2000, she was proof that you are never too old to achieve your dream.
She had four careers she was very proud of: Navy wife, mom, pediatric hospice nurse and Episcopal deacon.
She was a member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
In her free time, she enjoyed painting, knitting, sewing and needlework of any kind. While at St. Luke's, she participated in making quilts for wounded soldiers returning from Iraq.
Jaynne was also chaplain for the local chapter of the Military Officers Association of America.
She leaves behind her son, Larry (Vaun) Gott of Martinsville, Virginia; daughter Candi (Mike) Schaefermeyer of Port Angeles; brother William Cairns of Acworth, Georgia; grandchildren Eric (Sarah) Schaefermeyer, Heidi Urbauer, Kimberly (Matt) Sullivan, Catherine (James) Gupton and Peter Gott; and great-grandchildren Kendal and Beckett Urbauer, Veronica Schaefermeyer and Dagny Sullivan.
Jaynne has been reunited with her infant son, Alan Ross; daughter Kathi (Gott) Waring; and her husband, Charlie, who passed in 2010.
The family would like to thank the Reverend Gail Wheatley for her support and prayers since Jaynne moved to Port Angeles, and to all the staff at Dungeness Courte for the compassionate care they gave to her during the short time she was with them.
A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 525 North Fifth Avenue in Sequim, at 1 p.m. A reception in the parish hall will follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be directed to St. Andrew's Place, 520 East Park Avenue, Port Angeles, WA 98362.
