June 20, 1986 – March 15, 2014
Jaime Nicole Scoville was born June 20, 1986 in St. Louis, Missouri, to Steve and Joan Scoville. She joined seven year old Ben and four year old Charlie. In 1994, the Scovilles moved to Ridgway, Colorado, and she joined the 2nd grade class at Ridgway Schools. On the first day of school, she met Evie Donegan on the playground, and they have been besties ever since.
Jaime loved movies, music, makeup, fashion, and sports. During her school years, she participated in basketball, soccer, and little league baseball. She was even the umpire in the backyard when her brothers practiced pitching. She loved to swim, but she was terrified of sharks! Aren’t we all? In middle school she also excelled in speech. She went on to graduate from Ridgway High School in 2004.
Following graduation, Jaime went to Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, where she made so many new friends. She attended college and worked and lived in Durango for five years before moving back to her home town of Ridgway. We are so grateful she did, because we got to spend the last several years of her life with her.
Jaime is survived by many loved ones; her loving parents, Steve & Joan; her two adoring brothers, Ben & Charlie: Ben & Katrina of Winona, Minnesota and Charlie & Josey of Ridgway, Colorado; her precious niece & nephews – Jonah (4), Stella (2), Holden (1.5), and Harvey (2 months); her grandfather Elmer T. Williams of St. Louis, Missouri; her aunts, uncles, and cousins (the Williams & Allyn Families) all of St. Louis, Missouri; her boyfriend, Trevor Hollenbeck…and her loyal dog, Jack.
Jaime had most recently been voted the Best Waitress in Ouray County for the 2nd time.
Jaime passed away suddenly in her home on March 15, 2014.
Jaime had a never-ending smile, a song in her heart, and a thoughtfulness unmatched by any who knew her. She could make you smile with one word or one sideward glance and drop you to your knees in laughter with her quick wit, sarcasm, and impeccable delivery. Her laughter could make you laugh till your belly hurt. She was a bright light and touched the lives of so many people around her. She will be greatly missed.
A memorial service to celebrate Jaime’s life will be held in Ridgway Town Park on Thursday, March 20 at 2 p.m. Please bring a chair and dress warmly.
