Gorgeous girl, beautiful soul. Jamie Lynne Skinner peacefully left her body on Sunday, March 28, 2021. Born July 5, 1990, in Lawrence, Kansas, Jamie attended St. John Catholic School, South Jr. High, graduated from Lawrence High School, and attended the University of Kansas.
Jamie, fearlessly chose to be herself. She loved acting & film, animals, beauty & fashion, ice skating, and was an avid reader, her favorite book series being Harry Potter. Jamie enjoyed outdoor adventures to the lakes surrounding Lawrence, spots with peaceful places to read or to take her many furry friends to play. A favorite pastime was cruising in her black convertible, top down on a sunny day, mellowing in good tunes. Jamie’s greatest gift was her generous heart and the light she brought to every person she encountered, always desiring to help others feel loved and safe.
Jamie loved her family and friends. Her sister, Gina Skinner, mother, Stacy Williamson Keeling, father and stepmother, Jim & Lynn Skinner, and grandmother, Lorena Williamson, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends miss her dearly. As Jamie and Bob Dylan would say, “All I can do is be me, whoever that is.”
A private service is planned. The family suggests memorials to the Lawrence Humane Society or Prairie Paws, Ottawa and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary, 120 W. 13th Street, Lawrence, KS 66044.
