June 26, 1970-Oct. 7, 2017
Jamie Ann Templin passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 7, 2017 surrounded by family and loved ones.
Jamie was born in Butte, Montana on June 26, 1970; she was the youngest child of James Ralph and Claire Pond. She attended McKinley Elementary School and Butte Central High School where she graduated in 1988. She later went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Kaplan University.
On March 6, 1996, Jamie married her true love Donald James Templin and they had two children together; Tayler and Victoria. When she married Don he also brought to their family a son, Zachary, who she loved as her own.
Jamie’s family was her world, and her favorite place to be was wherever they were. Camping, cleaning, and caring were her three favorite hobbies. In the summer, she loved to be outdoors sharing time and laughs with her family.
In the winter, she enjoyed spending her time at home cleaning and watching her favorite TV shows with her husband and children. She cared fiercely for everyone around her and made a positive impact on the lives of everyone around her.
Criminal justice and mental health were a natural calling for her caring and compassionate personality. She was able to work alongside people that would become close friends and have a special place in her heart. These were friendships that she cherished immensely throughout the years.
Jamie was preceded in death by her parents, James and Claire.
Jamie is survived by her husband, Donald James Templin; her children Zachary, Tayler, and Victoria Templin; and her siblings, Lisa (Ken) Foreman and James Ralph. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews Courtney, Jacob, and Lane Foreman, Cassandra and Jacklyn Ralph.
Cremation has taken place. Memorial services will be conducted Friday morning at 11 a.m. in Wayrynen-Richards Funeral Home. A reception will follow at the McQueen Club. Memorials in her memory may be made to Autism Speaks or the Montana Police Protective Association Scholarship Fund.
