Jayne Greene Allison, 68,  of Columbia, South Carolina, died in the early morning hours of Thursday May 12, 2016 in the comfort of her home. She was born August 21, 1947 . Her loving parents were Tillie and William F. Greene.  She was their only child. How they treasured her.


Jayne is survived by her daughter Amber, her son-in-law Bryant Thomsen, and granddaughters Tillie and Casey, all of Charlotte, North Carolina.  Also surviving Jayne is her son Joseph, her daughter-in-law Megan,  granddaughter Josie and grandson Bergen, all of Moretown, Vermont.  Also surviving is her aunt, Doris Greene, of Greenville South Carolina; several treasured cousins; a loving and caring extended family; and a loyal circle of friends that span the arc of her life from childhood to her last two years at The Finlay House. Her dear friend Van Haygood provided such good care of her in her final months.


Jayne grew up in Forest Acres and graduated from A.C.Flora in 1965. Shortly after she married Joseph Gandy Allison.  The home Joe built for them on Tupelo Farms Road was featured in the Women’s News Section of The Columbia Record.  Jayne and Joe later divorced but remained lifelong friends until his death in 2010.


Jayne was a woman of many talents, but was chosen to be a nurse.  As a young mother, she attended and graduated from nursing school in Charleston, SC.  She enjoyed a long and respected career as an ER nurse, working at Providence Hospital for over 20 years, being on the Life Reach team, and working at the Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, NC. She was a gifted RN, smart and tough, talented and tender. She was respected by her doctors, loved by her colleagues, and was a comfort to her patients in their times of need.


Jayne loved to laugh and cultivated a deep well of friendships; she loved to read, especially Pat Conroy and Edna St.Vincent Millay. She connected deeply with music of all types. She enjoyed card games and eating out with her wide circle of family and friends.  She was devoted to the Clemson Tigers and to her strong faith in God.  Above all, she treasured her family. They were her pride and her joy.


Visiting hours will be held from 4:00 - 6:00 PM on Monday, May 16, 2016,  at the Moseley’s Funeral Home in West Columbia. Bubba Grimsley will be officiating. Per Jayne’s final wishes, her ashes will be spread by her children and grandchildren in the ocean off the coast of her beloved South Carolina.


Joy & Woe are woven fine

A Clothing for the soul divine.

Under every grief & pine

Runs a joy with silken twine.

Jayne was a wonderful cousin, funny,warm,sympathetic. She was always quick to hug and slow to blame. When my father died, she told me that there was going to be quite a throw down in the heaven that night. Well, now she's joined that party.

Amber and Jody, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a wonderful lady. I remember she was always gracious to welcome your close friends into her home when we were younger. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Jayne around two years ago in a class. We quickly bonded as two Clemson Tigers in a sea of others. Although we never saw each other in person after that, we kept in touch through Facebook. I particularly enjoyed her Dorothy Parker quotes, and the fact that she loved her family so much. Please know that she is a person that I will think of often as a friend.

God bless,

Amanda Folk
