Jamie Sargent, age 52, of Naytahwaush, MN, died Thursday, October 27, 2022, at the Mahnomen Health Center, Mahnomen, MN.

Jamie Lynn Sargent was born July 29, 1970, in Mahnomen, MN, the daughter of Avonelle Sargent and James Burnette Sr. Jamie attended elementary school in Naytahwaush followed by Mahnomen High School. Over the years, Jamie worked on and off at the Shooting Star Casino as a Blackjack dealer and as a server. She raised her son, Tyson, and her bonus son, Dayton, and her bonus daughter, Sharon "Dolly Girl" Sargent in the Naytahwaush area. The majority of her life was spent on the White Earth Reservation, with the exception of a few years she lived in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro. While living in the cities Jamie attended college but returned to the area last year to be closer to friends and family.

In her free time, Jamie enjoyed reading romance novels, writing and journaling. She had a huge personality with a great sense of humor. Jamie had a special bond with her sister, Mel, and best friend, Cheryl, and they loved putting on makeup and getting all dolled up and going out, usually singing some Lorretta Lynn at Karaoke. Jamie also liked to spend time in the great outdoors, doing all the seasonal activities like leeching, and sugar bushing, usually with her father. Jamie was a great person with a big heart and she will be missed by many.
