Jamie Lyn O’Roark Hoyle Lee, age 51, passed away September 30, 2021. Born in Grand Rapids Mich., she was the daughter of Linda Brant Dufseth and James O’Roark.
She is survived by husband Chris Lee; mother and stepfather, Linda and John Dufseth; father James O’Roark; her beloved daughters, Mallory and Mariah Hoyle; stepdaughter, Savannah Lee; brother and sister-in-law, Brook and Gwen O’Roark; and niece, Allison O’Roark. She also leaves behind countless family members of the O’Roark, Brant, and Houpt families in Somerset, Pa., as well as her relatives in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Everyone knew Jamie for her big heart, generous nature, and loving spirit. She never missed anyone’s birthday, anniversary, or any chance she had to make someone feel special. Her friends and family brought her true happiness. Jamie graduated Saint Stephens High School in 1988 and pursued a career in Healthcare Management, where she spent over a decade at Catawba Valley Medical Center. Her pride and joy came from doing anything that involved her girls. Jamie’s greatest achievement in life was being a mother, and she told people that every chance she got. May we all remember the big smile we were once greeted with, the warm hugs she passed out so graciously, and live life in love the same way she did.
