Jamie Huyer Warden was born in Puerto Rico on January 8, 1952. She grew up in Connecticut, attended college in Maine and earned her Master's in Family Economics at the University of Missouri, where she taught until the effects of an auto accident forced her to retire in 2011. Upon retirement Jamie chose to live in Beaufort, South Carolina, where she met and married Richard Warden, who passed away in March, 2016. Jamie loved helping others. While teaching at the University she also volunteered by teaching family economics to prison inmates, with the belief that she could help loosen the grip of poverty through a better understanding of family finances once they were released. Jamie was a passionate artist who continually tried new ways to express herself. Whether painting, pottery, needlepoint or basket weaving, she was always trying something new. Jamie also loved to express herself through dance. Jamie was an adventurer. She loved Spanish and traveled frequently to exciting destinations where she could discover history, learn about different cultures and enjoy nature. Jamie loved life. She had a playful attitude, enjoyed making friends and, most importantly, was a very happy person. She will be sorely missed by her sister Kim Stautner, her step children, cousins, and the many dear friends she made in Missouri and in Beaufort, including her stepdaughter Galen Warden and the wonderful women who cared for her in her final year. All are welcomed to a memorial service to be held at 3 p.m. on February 17, 2017 at Anderson Funeral Home, 611 Robert Smalls Pkwy, Beaufort, SC 29906. We will celebrate Jamie's life and showcase her artwork. www.andersonfuneralhomebeaufortsc.com.
