Jayne, known as “Pooh Bear” by her family and close friends, passed away April 5, 2021. Born in Columbia, she was a daughter of the late Jesse Perry Hutto, Sr. and Janet Lee Nicholson Hutto. Jayne was the “heart” of her family; her bravery and courage fighting Multiple Sclerosis for more than 25 years served to inspire her friends and family. She had an impish sense of humor, and loved making people laugh and feel at ease.  She was a devoted mother and grandmother, and enjoyed sharing life and making memories with those she loved. She attended St. Peter’s Catholic School as a young girl, and was a 1983 graduate of Cardinal Newman High School. Jayne enjoyed a career as a Dispatcher with the Forest Acres Police Department. She was awarded a commendation for bravery for saving the life of a young man. She enjoyed walks to the park and swimming with her daughter and son, crafting, picnics, and movies with the neighborhood. Jayne was overjoyed when she met her granddaughter, Layla, and delighted in the time that she got to share with her.

Jayne is survived by her daughter, Virginia Lee Rivers (James Aaron) of Columbia; granddaughter, Layla Bobbi Rivers; sister, Julie Anne Hutto of Lugoff, brothers, Jesse Perry Hutto, II of Columbia, Joseph Leland Hutto of Columbia, William “Billy” Starling (Dee) of Prosperity. Jayne is also survived by a large and loving extended family. In addition to her parents, Jayne was predeceased by her son, Bobby Lee Lowe, III.

The family would like to thank the staffs of Amedysis Home Health, Agape Hospice and Prisma Health Baptist Hospital for their attentive and loving care; especially Tara Dunbar, who was a special angel involved in her care.
