Jayne L. Stone

    GARLAND – Jayne Leslee Stone, 55, died January 4, 2013, at a Dover-Foxcroft nursing home. She was born February 17, 1957, in Dexter, a daughter of Raymond Lee and Edith (Palmer) Stone. Jayne was born into a loving family. They made sure that her daily life was as uncomplicated as possible. Jayne’s happiness at doing all those things she enjoyed was evident. The simplest things in life were significant to Jayne. She loved listening to music, especially country western, watching TV, celebrating holidays, and always looked forward to celebrating her birthday with friends and family. Jayne was an avid cross-stitcher and took great pride in her work. She also enjoyed piecing together jig saw puzzles – the more complicated the better. For many summers Jayne looked forward to attending the weekly matinee performances at Lakewood Theater with her mother and good friend Mabel Olson.

    Jayne attended school at the Little Red School House in Dover Foxcroft. It was there that she learned many life skills which helped her live a happy and productive life. She took part in many activities which enriched her life such as bowling, ceramics, wood working, cooking and sewing. She learned to read and looked forward every day to reading the newspaper. She also looked forward to her father bringing home the TV Guide each week for her to read. Jayne enjoyed taking part in the Special Olympics and especially enjoyed attending the closing dance with her friends.

    She is survived by her sister and brother in law, Joanne and Peter Prescott of Dexter; niece Sarah Enaire and husband Matthew, great-nephew Dylan Enaire and great-niece Mariah Enaire, all of Portland; an aunt Evelyn Lawrence of Pittsfield; uncle and aunt Carl and Lorraine Palmer of Exeter; and many special cousins.

    She was predeceased by her parents, Lee and Edie; grandparents Leonard and Clara Stone, Lester Palmer and Vera Palmer Gilbert; and uncles and aunts, Paul and Helen Stone and John and Betty Palmer.

    Jayne’s family extends special thanks to the staff of Hibbard Nursing Home for the excellent care she received for the past five years.

    Funeral services will be held 2 p.m. Thursday, January 10, at Crosby & Neal, 61 Main Street, Dexter, with the Rev. Jay Brennan officiating. Friends may call from 1 p.m. until the time of services. Spring burial will be in the West Garland Cemetery.
