Jaine Springer

Jaine Roberts Springer of Mercer Island died peacefully on February 7,2023. Born on April 15, 1927 to parents Clive E. and Flossie M. Roberts (nee Miller) of Colfax, WA, Jaine graduated from Colfax High School and Mills College. While at Mills, she had the unique opportunity of interviewing Eva Peron in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a course paper.

She was a member of AAUW, the Spokane Club, Hayden Lake Country Club, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, and the Women’s University Club of Seattle where she was the chair of the Book Club for many years.

Throughout her life, Jaine was an avid reader of fiction, biographies and current events. A tomboy as a child, she was a golfer, a swimmer, and also a serious walker who could be seen most days on the trails of South Mercer Island with her Sealyham puppy.

Jaine is survived by her 7 children: J. Scott Deasy (Kathy); Kay Deasy (Len Sorrin); Craig Deasy (Karol); Beth Rohlfing (Jim); Sara Graham (Bret); Annie Springer; and Clive Springer (Diana), 13 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren. A service will be held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church at a later date.

    I did not know Jaine but I am a friend of Kay and Len. Reading about her life interests and accomplishments I am impressed and would have liked to know her. One thing I know is she raised a lovely, intelligent, accomplished daughter – good job, Jaine. Rest in peace.

    I did not have the privilege of meeting Jaine myself, but was blessed deeply with the friendship of her daughter Annie during my young adult years. It is no small thing to raise 7 children, and the impact that those lives have had in this world is significant! Annie and I even had the opportunity to invest one of our summers in building a retreat center in Costa Rica that still exists today.

    Wishing your family the peace of Christ in the days and years ahead.
