Carol Jane Bain "Janie", 67, passed away on February 10, 2013 in Casa Grande, AZ.
Janie was born on November 16, 1945 in Viborg, SD to Robert and Marjorie Skotvold. She had three children; Lisa, Don, and Jon. She moved to Federal Way, Washington in 1969. She was divorced in 1976 and was a strong woman that worked very hard as a single parent. She worked for the American National Can Co for twenty years holding a variety of jobs. Primarily, as a gifted fork lift operator and took pride in being the first female operator on the day shift. She loved spending her summer weekends with her kids at Herron Island, Washington.
Janie met the love of her life, Arnie Dye, in 1990 and was married in 1991. Together they commercial fished up in the Bering Sea for King Crab and in the South Pacific for Tuna. She was the alternate skipper on all the boats she was on. She was a skilled navigator and once while piloting the boat she successfully located a school of tuna and was able to track and circle the fish for two hours which enabled the deck hands to pull up 728 20-pound fish which is a feat that has never been duplicated on that boat.
She loved traveling and being on and near the water. Her travels took her to places like Dutch Harbor, ST. Paul and King Cove, Alaska, Hawaii, Fiji, American Samoa, Guam, Saipan, the Marshal Islands, as well as the Washington and Oregon coast. Her traveling mate was her 3 legged cat, Hook, which she never left home without.
She had a big circle of friends where ever she went. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, line dancing, golfing, darts, pool, and entertaining her friends at home. She was innovative in the kitchen and liked to share her creations with her friends.
At Christmas time she went on a baking bonanza making dozens and dozens of cookies and candies which she shared with friends and family near and far. She was very generous at Christmas time often opening up her house, ensuring her friends had a warm and loving place to go for the holidays.
She was a big fan and avid follower of all her grandkids; Brittany, Sarah, Vanessa, John, and Brianna. She enjoyed keeping up with all their activities and travels through email, phone calls, and Facebook.
She was one-of-a-kind and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Her survivors include, her husband of 22 years, Arnie Dye, her two sons Don Bain and Jon Bain of Portland, OR, her daughter Lisa Hammond of Norfolk, VA, her mother Marjorie Skotvold of Centerville, SD, her brother Olaf Skotvold of Bothel, WA, her two sisters, Marie Spodek of Upstate, NY, and Ellen Rokusek of Loup City, NB, and 5 Grandchildren, and 2 Great-Grandchildren.
