An amazing soul and mother of two, Jamie Lee Pointon, of Deary, passed away Thursday, February 23rd, at just 31-years-old. Jamie was born September 28, 1985 in Moscow to her loving parents Don L. Pointon and Sandra D. Wikum. She grew up in the area and graduated from Deary High School in 2005.
Jamie was to everyone exactly what they needed; which meant something different to each person she knew. She became a mother and from the moment her sons were born they became her whole world. Being a mom was her greatest accomplishment and she was so good at it. She loved her boys more than anything and had a way with any child. She was happy and care free and children were drawn to her and the joy she radiated. One of her favorite ways to spend her time was with her cousins and extended family. Jamie was always smiling, always laughing, and her happiness was contagious. If you couldn’t find her, chances were she was hidden away in a blanket fort somewhere.
Jamie worked for Motley & Motley as a Traffic Control Supervisor alongside her mom. She loved her family and her job. Aside from being a mom, and rocking her neon safety gear, Jamie was known for her crazy sunglasses, hats, mismatched socks, and genuinely carefree spirit. She loved the outdoors, especially camping and four-wheelers- which she raced once and happened to win. Jamie did what she loved, wore what she wanted, sang too loudly and out of key, and wasn’t afraid to dance even when people were looking. She was a free spirit and just didn’t care what others had to say.
She is survived by her sons, Cooper Gunnar Pointon (and his father, Bradley Dammerman) and Bentley Ole Pointon; (and his father, her fiancé, Brad Beyer), of Deary. Her parents, Sandy Wikum and Don Pointon also of Deary. She also leaves her brother, Maxwell Pointon and his fiancé Kammi Brockman of Lewiston; half-brothers, Andy Pointon of Deary and Aaron Pointon of San Diego, CA; and her half-sister, Shannon Pointon of Independence, MO; as well as, her grandmother, Margaret Pointon of Moscow. Jamie is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews all of whom she adored and who adored her.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Glen and Ernestine Wikum and George Pointon; Aunt Kathy Wikum; as well as her best friend Dorita Osterberg (Uncle Dodo).
A celebration of life and a potluck lunch will be at 12:00 noon on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at the Deary Community Center in Deary Idaho.
An educational fund has been established for her boys’ education. The gofundme page for donations for the children is: www.gofundme.com/fwuugprg.
