Jamie R. Torner was born June 13, 1982, in Cudahy, Wisconsin. Jamie passed away unexpectedly on September 13. 2018. Jamie spent most of her life in Arizona, having moved here in 1986. She earned her Bachelor of Science from ASU in Bio-Chemistry in 2004 and her PharmD degree from the University of Arizona in 2012. Jamie was a pharmacist for Safeway, working in Benson and Vail, AZ.
Jamie was an amazing, strong young woman who lived life to the fullest. She had a sharp wit, a dry sense of humor and loved to have fun with her friends. She was also a caring, compassionate person who put others in front of herself. She loved to travel and visited all over Europe. She was open to adventure and hiked, ziplined, and even tried whitewater rafting, although she didn’t want to at first. Once she tried it she had a blast.
A celebration of Life will be October 13, 2018, 5:30 p.m., at Hops and Vines in Sonoita, AZ. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Jamie’s name to either the Melanoma Foundation or the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
