Jayne Pointer Logan was ushered into the presence of Jesus on Friday, August 9, 2013, surrounded by her husband and family in California. She was born April 20, 1956, in Pine Bluff where she attended Watson Chapel High School before receiving her nursing degree at the University of Central Arkansas.
While in college, she met Richard Logan, a children’s pastor at her church. They married in September 1978 and served in ministry together, eventually moving their young family to California.
Jayne loved and served her family as a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend, but loved and served her Lord and Savior, above all. Filled with compassion, she also cared for others as a nurse for 34 years. Proverbs 31:29 was surely written about her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Her strong will to live and unwavering faith in God carried her through seven years of life after a cancer diagnosis. Through her illness, Jayne continued to be an active and energetic lady. She loved being outdoors, working in her garden and tending flowers, which she took to elderly friends. She also enjoyed walking, bicycling, singing and playing the piano.
Jayne was an avid reader of the Bible and devotional books. She loved sharing what she learned, and had a fun-loving sense of humor, bringing joy to others with her silly jokes, contagious laugh and smile.
She is survived by her husband, Richard; her children, Christy and Suzanna; and her grandchildren, Jacob and Vivian Jayne. Her parents, Martha and Hubert Pointer also survive her, along with siblings Becky Bilgischer and David Pointer.
Jayne’s life will be celebrated in a service 10:30AM, Saturday, August 17, 2013 at First Assembly of God, Pine Bluff with Pat Hart and Reverend Dan Wolfanger officiating by Ralph Robinson & Son Funeral Directors. Burial will be 11:00AM, Monday, August 19, 2013 in Arkansas State Veteran Cemetery in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The family will receive friends Friday evening from 6:00-8:00PM at Robinson’s. Friends may sign the online register at www.ralphrobinsonandson.com.
Flowers would be an appropriate and appreciated way to celebrate Jayne’s life.
