OBITUARY

Jaime Jaime Noelle (Rogers) Velarde

December 4, 1976September 19, 2010

Jaime Noelle (Rogers) Velarde was born December 4, 1976 in Hermiston OR to parents Harold Gene and Pat (Crosswhite) Rogers. Jaime relocated with her family to Milwaukie Oregon in 1988. Jaime was a beautiful, gifted and talented child enjoying basketball, gymnastics and dance team. However she excelled in softball as a first baseman and being coached to become a high school pitcher vying for sports scholarships. However, she developed emotional disorders which sadly led her to self-medicating via alcoholism and drug addictions issues, which eventually cut her promising life short.

Jaime dropped out of high school and began an unconventional life-style living on the streets in Clackamas OR in 1990. Jaime married Bruce Lee Velarde in 1996 and she delivered their son Justin Lee Velarde in 2000. Jaime gave custody of Justin to Bruce and they divorced in 2003.

Jaime began a long-term relationship with Edward Raymond Tope who fathered their daughter Breanna Rae (Rogers) Lena Toon prematurely in 2004. As Jaime and Ray were unable to provide for Beanna's well-being whilst remaining homeless, they relinguished custody and she was adopted by Jaime's cousin Trisha (Skei) Toon and Michael in 2005. Jaime and Ray toured the midwest and southwest for several years, before Jaime left him and returned to the Clackamas Oregon area in 2008. Jaime suffered serious domestic violence injuries, life-threatening homeless fights and finally became disabled from injecting heroin into the main nerve in her arm. Jaime passed peacefully September 19, 2010 in a dry tent curled up in a warm sleeping bag. We will miss Jaime's free-spirited lifestyle and unconventional attitude but we rejoice in her soul being released where she will not suffer anymore. Jaime leaves behind, her two children whom she adored, along with her parents Harold Gene Rogers and Pat Crosswhite (Ben) Spencer, an older brother Thomas Cliff Hall whom she taunted, a younger sister Gina Brianne (Rogers) Jordan whom she mothered, her affectionate niece Kylee Brianne Jordan and her special friends Teri Gant and John. Services were held on September 23, 2010 at Lincoln Memorial Mortuary. Guestbook, memorial and photographs located within koin.mem.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations requested forwarded to The Father's Heart Homeless Shelter, 8899 SE Jannsen Road, Clackamas OR 97015 www.tfhministries.com Arrangements under the direction of Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home, Portland, OR.

Ben and Pat and Family, My heart goes out to all of you suffering with the loss of Jaime. She is gone and done with suffering here on earth but we are all left here for a while until we meet our loved ones again in heaven with a gloried body, clean and new, with white robes that were washed in the Saviors blood just for us. I can't wait. I am sure you are feeling the same about now. It has been a rough couple of years with your dad's illness and death and now Jaime. I pray your pain will be turned again in to joy and peace knowing where she is and that the struggle of addiction is over now for her. Bless you all. Love you very much. Steve and Shelley Thompson and family.

Jaime, we are all missing just knowing you were nearby...whether we connected with you or not. We were all busier the first month, you were gone BUT now the real depth of your loss to our family is beginning to widen to point of never imagining what life would be like without you in our lives. It took everything I had to go pick up your ash
-es along with copies of the DVD which was shared at your celebration of life memorial almost six weeks ago. We are
giving Justin/Breanna copies of your photographs and the audio portion which
included the last message you left on my cell phone six weeks before your death, as something tangible they can hold onto as their memory you, too. Al
-though we all know and believe you are in a much better place, it is difficult to imagine never seeing you again until we pass too...which will be the biggest home-coming any of us can ever imagine.
I am hoping to see you in my dreams too
...may you rest in peaceful tranquility
or add a lot more spark with all of the other angels who welcomed you back home again...hallelujah JESUS. Love...MOM

I remember her being very sweet and always so thankful for any help she was given. Whenever I passed her in my car and saw her walking, I prayed for her. Today she is experencing freedom with the Father. Lord set free the other Jaime's out there.

I will miss your smile and your continued loving concern for me and my family.
Now you are safely tucked in the arms of Jesus.
I will love you forever Jaime!
