Jane Boyd Poage

Jane Boyd Poage

Jane was born at Swedish Hospital in Seattle in 1928 to Victor A. Boyd and Camilla Winslow Boyd, and grew up on the family farm at Thrasher’s Corner in Bothell, along with her younger sisters Alexandra and Camilla. Jane graduated from Bothell High School and Central Washington College.

In 1950 Jane wed her college sweetheart, Douglas Poage, and they and settled in Raymond, WA where Jane taught elementary school. As their family expanded to include four children, they lived in Bothell and Mountlake Terrace, finally building their fantastic A-frame home on a parcel of the family farm.

Jane was a homemaker and a volunteer, sharing her love of reading as a librarian. She was a voter registrar, a Girl Scout troop leader, was active in the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Kenmore, the Bothell Historical Society and other organizations. She collected dolls, belonged to a bridge club that played together for over 50 years, and decorated her home for every holiday from Ground Hog Day to Christmas, and always had home made cookies in the cookie jar.

She was Godmother to several of her nieces and nephews, and she had a special gift for connecting with young people. She and Doug owned and operated the Yakima Fruit Market and Nursery in Bothell where customers are still requesting her pickle recipe. Jane and Doug retired to Camano Island where they were active in St. Aiden’s Episcopal church.

Jane will be loved and missed forever by her husband Douglas, children Camilla Eyre (Alex), Winslow Poage (Josephine), Stuart Poage (Karin) and Peggy Poage (Brian), and grandsons Noel Poage, Christian Poage (Alisa) and Winslow Poage (Harla). Jane was thrilled to be the great grandmother of three girls, Lively, Sedona and Juniper. Jane is also survived by her sister Alexandra Palmer, beloved nieces and nephews, cousins and friends, and was predeceased by her sister Camilla Boyd.

Funeral will be February 28, 10 a.m. at St. Aiden’s Episcopal church on Camano Island.
