Jaime Marie Mayr

Jaime Marie Mayr went to the Lord on July 14, 2021, in Seattle, Washington, after a short illness. She was born on May 30, 1984. She grew up on the banks of the lower Wishkah River, next door to her Grandpa Mayr on one side and her cousins, the Nelsons, across a little foot bridge on the other side. As children, Jaime, her siblings and cousins enjoyed going to Grandpa’s house and raiding the candy drawer (as if grandpa didn’t know).

Jaime graduated from St. Mary School and then Aberdeen High School in 2002. She continued her education at Seattle University, graduating with bachelor’s degrees in biology and chemistry. She then attended the University of Southern California, where she was conferred a degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Jaime worked as a physical therapist in Southern California, Hoquiam and the Seattle area and also was certified as an instructor in Pure Barre and taught classes. Jaime enjoyed her work and had empathy with her patients. She was also not shy about setting up exercise programs for family members.

Jaime enjoyed hiking and had hiked many of the trails in the Olympics and Snoqualmie Pass area. She also enjoyed running and bicycle riding. While she was attending school in California, Jaime and her dad hiked the Grand Canyon on spring break.

She is also survived by her nephews Cole and Camden; uncle Curt: aunts Linda (Pat), Karen, and Mary (Steve); cousins: Amy, Heather, Alyssa, Parker, Shannon, Brooke, Megan, Kelly and Alex.
