Obituary for Judy Jamieson

Our dearly loved Judy, age 78, a long-time resident of Lewiston, passed peacefully with family beside her on Saturday the 9th of January at Wildflower Lodge Memory Care in Maple Grove.

Judy was preceded in death by her beloved husband of fifty-three years, William “Bill” Jamieson; parents Theodore and E. Louisa Flint; and sister Barbara.

Born in 1937 in Ithaca, NY, Judy received a Bachelor of Science in Education from Pasadena City College in 1959. Judy taught in elementary classrooms for over 25 years (California and Minnesota) and authored the Grammartown Language Program as well as numerous classroom “how-to” books. She was sought after internationally as a motivational speaker who passionately believed that one of the basic rights of education is success. Judy became a respected education consultant and pioneer of the Learning Community Framework for graduate programs in teacher education. At the time of Judy’s retirement, the Learning Community Framework had resulted in Master’s degrees for well over 20,000 students nationwide. “To find success, a student must know the joy of succeeding,” Judy would say. Judy fiercely advocated for the unique learning process of each child to be honored. “There is a basic need for all students to discover their greatness. No one should be left out.” She was a champion for the rights of every child to be successful in the classroom and passionate about peer-group learning.

Judy loved reading, learning, music, fishing, animals (especially cats), cooking, baking for family, gardening and watching children explore.

Judy is survived by her cherished children Mike Jamieson (Cory) of Winona, Larry Jamieson (Lisa) of Maple Grove and Jennifer Jamieson (Scott Priest) of West Fargo, ND; grandchildren Lance Schiltz (Stephanie Kostuck), Drew (Lindsay) Schiltz, Eric Schiltz, Alexandra Jamieson, Erin Jamieson, Carolyn “Carly” Jamieson; great grandson William Schiltz; brother Jon (Sylvia) Flint; sister-in-law Sharlene (Greg) Hain; nieces and nephews; many students, colleagues and friends.

These people are wonderful. They went over and above in every possible way to help us with funeral arrangements, the visitation, service and burial, despite the fact that we had a limited budget. They were patient, kind, and treated us like family. This is a funeral home you can trust. Thank you, Evans-Nordby.
