Jessica Diann Payne, 34, of Quitman passed away on October 1, 2022 with her family by her side.
Jessica was born on January 5, 1988 in Dallas, Tx. She attended Quitman High School where she was always a fun and vibrant young lady. She could always give you a good laugh. Jessica graduated from Quitman in 2006. After high school she worked at the Wood County Democrat for a while. Then she worked as an insurance agent and also ran a construction company. She was definitely a jack of all trades. Jessica then went on to college for nursing and made it all the way up to the clinical portion, that’s when she got her cancer diagnosis. She wasn’t able to complete the clinicals because of the cancer.
She had a very large heart and loved many things, but most of all her 4 kids and her husband. They made her the proudest. Tristyn 20, who is her oldest is a SPC in the US Army; Freddy, 14, is a Freshman at Quitman is a line man in football and also does shot put; Lexi, 13, also does shot put and track; Eddy aka “the baby” is a percussionist in the band. Her favorite foods were potatoes (cooked anyway), rolos, and the pink popsicles; her favorite movie and tv show were Twilight and Greys Anatomy. She loved the beach, to write and read, do her make up, travel around, learn about the lord, and yellow roses.
Jessica is survived by her loving husband Fred Payne II of 15 years; her 4 children Tristyn, Freddy, Lexi, and Eddy; Rocky aka “Little Dog” her four-legged companion; and numerous friends who will miss her dearly.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul” Psalm 23
“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always
As long as I’m living
My baby you’ll be.”
A Memorial Service for Jessica will be held at 3:30PM Thursday, October 6, 2022 at Lowe-Gardner Funeral Home with Pastor Joel McMullen officiating.
