Jayne Lord

1924 – 2021

Jayne Lord, a longtime Sequim resident, passed away peacefully in Seattle on Friday, June 25th at the age of 97.

She was born in Jeannette, Pennsylvania in 1924, the daughter of Hazel and Frank Rugh and the second of six children. Jayne attended Catwaba College before her marriage to John (“Jack”) Lord after a long courtship (they met in the first grade).

After the war, the couple moved to New York City where Jayne worked in retailing and Jack began a career in marketing. After giving birth to two children, the young family moved to Marion, Ohio in the mid-1950s where Jack eventually co-founded an award-winning advertising agency.

After retirement, the couple divided their time between homes in Sequim and St. Peterburg, Florida. For two decades, the Lords were active and popular in the Sunland community. Jayne enjoyed theater, golf, tennis, bridge and entertaining. She particularly loved gardening during the Northwest’s long summer days.

She is preceded in death by her husband who passed away in 2008. She is survived her son David and daughter Jacqueline of Seattle, their spouses Deborah Preston and James Copacino, along with four grandchildren and four great granddaughters.

Her 97-year journey was a Greatest Generation saga of sacrifice, perseverance and gratitude. Her family will cherish her legacy as a wise, loving, funny, gracious and resilient mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

TThe family has requested that contributions in her memory be made to Olympic Theatre Arts, PO Box 1474, Sequim, WA 98382.
