Jamie L. Lair, 16, of Menomonie passed away in Spooner on February 14, 2021, in a tragic accident. Jamie had battled with her mental health all her life. Those that knew her well, understand the turmoil she went through. During times of emotional distress, she would disassociate, which caused impulsive behaviors.

She attended Oaklawn Elementary, Menomonie Middle School, and Menomonie High School. At the time of her passing, she was residing with Stacy (Anderson) Sniezewski in Spooner and attending Spooner High School.
Jamie enjoyed drawing, journaling, and listening to music. Jamie desired to become a veterinarian after she graduated. She loved animals and just helping those in need.

Pearson of Mondovi; grandmother, Barbara Werner of Phillipsburg, Kansas; grandparents, Dan and Marilyn Arnsdorff of Mondovi; and two sisters, SkyWind Lair of Texas and Lynnsee Patrum of Kansas.
