Jina attended college where she received her accounting degree, she was a certified nursing assistant, but really enjoyed her time working in laundry/housekeeping at North Central Care Center and evening manager for Susie Laundromat and Dry Cleaning before retiring.
She loved to travel, love nature, and had a great love for her animals. She had an affinity for wolves, for which, over the years she had collected quite a collection of figurines.
In addition to her parents, Jina was predeceased by sister Cheryl Keller, brother James Irwin Jr. and brother Harry McElderry.
She is survived by her daughter Lisa Lowery, son Leon Ayotte, Jr., daughter Leahan Kalning and husband Brian, son Layne Ayotte and wife Susan, son Daniel Wells, Jr., sister Mary Lewis, brother Wayne Irwin, her adopted daughter Mary Cleary and fiancee Allen Devoe as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Thank you to Kindred Hospice in Liberty Lake and Family Home Health for caring for Jina in her last days. We would like to give special thanks to her caregiver Emily, who Jina had a special fondness for.
Celebration of her wonderful life will be arranged at a later date per her wishes.
