Jayne (Jay) Payne (nee Patrick) July 14, 1955 – October 19, 2020 It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected loss of Jay, who passed peacefully in her sleep at age 65. She was predeceased by her mom Betty 2019, dad Bill 2003, motherin- law Bev 2019, father-in -law Ernie 2012, Grandparents Evelyn 1992 and Samuel 1979. She was a dedicated wife to Lloyd of 38 years, and loving mother to Chris, Doug and Brad. She leaves behind her sister Linda (Ron), uncle Allen, sister-in-law Lori (Gary), brother in law Darryl (Angie) as well as family in Vancouver, Toronto and Nova Scotia. Jay will be lovingly and dearly missed by her lifelong friend Carol. Jay will be remembered as a lover of all things Celtic, nature, frogs, cats, and birds. She kept herself busy with crafts, from needlepoint to knitting and jewelry making and loved sharing her wares at local craft shows. Jay was an active and loved member of the Port Coquitlam Community Legion Pipe Band. She was an accomplished Tenor Drummer. She also served as Director and Secretary of the Pipe Band Society. She and Lloyd loved their time spent with the band. In the last few years of her life her passion changed to photography. She and Lloyd enjoyed time together taking pictures around the Lower Mainland, Jay with her camera and Lloyd carrying the equipment. She loved travelling especially to Cuba and visiting her family and friends all across the country. Though Jay endured a life of health challenges, she persevered with positivity, determination, along with Lloyd’s humour. Jay enjoyed every minute of her life with her best friend of 40 years, Lloyd. The adoring love they had for one another and the neverending laughter they shared, with be remembered by all who knew her. Jay’s boys were her world. Jay and Chris (also a bird lover) loved to battle it out in video games. Doug loved to bake family recipes with his mom, from a few dozen cookies to heaps of Christmas baking. Brad, with his big heart and passion to match was his mother’s keeper and she, his con^idant. She will be missed more than we can express, a beloved life gone far too soon. The family will invite friends to celebration of life at a later date. Donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

Jay and Loyd were long time family friends of ours. When we were children, Jay lived next door and would look after us. With our parents in the Pipe-band, there wasn’t an event that I didn’t stand side by side with Jay, watching my parents and chatting as I grew up. I always went to look for her and was always embraced in my running hug by both Jay and Loyd. Jay was the aunt to our family that we always looked forward to seeing. The cat prints on her walls, to her home made crafts at every fair. Parades, fairs, and every band event won’t be the same without her smiling face. I’ll always remember her accepting, loving personality, and her willingness to love me and my siblings at all stages in our lives. We will always love you Jay.

I am ever so sad to here my 2nd Mom had left this earth. Jayne you have been an ever so dear friend to my entire family. You were right there when Lucie passed and have been my rock for all things in my life. We have laughed, cried, and had fantastic times together with you and Lloyd. You may have left this earth but you will never be gone for me. I know one thing for sure heaven will never be the same with you and Lucie together again.

Jay was my long time friend of 40+ years. Jay was a caring, beautiful soul who left our world too soon. I loved her photography- she saw so much beauty in our world. When I think of you, Jay, I will smile for the friendship we shared and for the happiness I know you brought to all who knew you. “There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.” I will keep our friendship safe in my heart always. My heartfelt condolences to Lloyd, Chris, Brad and Doug.
