Jayne Quig passed away peacefully in Seattle on December 3, 2022 after a brave three-year fight with cancer.
Jayne was born on July 31, 1948 to Joe and Gladys Wetzel in Oregon City, Oregon. She attended Holy Names Academy and the University of Washington. She married John Quig in March of 1968 and initially settled in Seattle. Son Andy arrived in February 1975. The family moved to Vashon in 1976 and have remained to this day.
Jayne became active in the home interior field and operated Island Floor Covering for nearly twenty years. Later, she worked in Seattle for Latitudes, a purveyor of oriental rugs from all over the world. Retiring in 2015, she was then able to dedicate more time to grow and experiment as an artist. She worked in water- color, colored pencil, pastel, and alcohol ink, often drawn to depicting natural landscapes. Jayne was active in the Barnworks Art Shows from its earliest days, and served as treasurer of the Northwest Pastel Society. Her work appeared in galleries and shows around the region including at the Tacoma Art Museum. She enjoyed traveling to workshops with her art group to Italy and Croatia.
She is survived by her husband John, son Andy (Lawan), grandchildren Maya and Aejay, mother Gladys Layton, brothers Mark Wetzel, Jason Wetzel (Jackie), and nieces Erika, Catie, and Miranda. She is also survived by her beloved dogs Freddie and Lucy who will miss their long walks in the woods together.
Her family thanks Dr. Chirag A. Shah and the staff at Swedish Oncology as well as the staff at Swedish Hospice for their compassionate care.
Jayne was devoted to her family and friends, and we will miss her greatly.
