March 16, 1961 - July 1, 2018


Jayne passed away suddenly, at home in Cumberland, BC. She was a devoted mum to her two sons, Stuart and Gordon Clarke. And a good friend to her sister, Sue Montgomery. Jayne’s father, Mickey Montgomery, also survives her. She was predeceased by her mother Julie and her twin brother Sean. Jayne was born and grew up in Vancouver. She graduated from Eric Hamber Secondary School in 1978. From there she went on to work at the credit bureau and in banking, until the birth of her children. She revelled in being a stay-at-home mum for Stuart and Gordon. Jayne and her family lived in several communities in BC – Chilliwack, Gibsons, Prince George – finally permanently settling in Cumberland in 1998. In her twenties, Jayne contracted the hepatitis C virus from a blood transfusion, consequently suffering life long from chronic hepatitis C. Commonly viewed as a disease of the liver, this disease is in fact a systemic illness, causing a number of co-occurring life-threatening conditions. Jayne suffered from several of these known systemic effects of chronic hepatitis C. One of those, a cerebrovascular event (a stroke), led to her death. At the time Jayne received the transfusion, a test was available to detect the virus in the blood donation system. This test was not conducted on the blood supply, causing many people, including Jayne, to contract this insidious disease. This was entirely preventable and should never have happened. Jayne was part of a class action suit that resulted in a settlement. Jayne endured her illness with dignity and perseverance. We salute you, Jayne, and we will miss you terribly. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, September 15th, at 1:00pm, at the Crown Isle Resort, 399 Clubhouse Drive, Courtenay, BC. Please RSVP to Sue at smonty2222@gmail.com.

Arrangements have been placed in the care of Emma Rimell.
