Martha Jane Owens, wife of Jim Owens, dies at 81

Martha Jane Owens, wife of former UW football coach Jim Owens, died on Thursday night in Bigfork, Mt. She was 81.
Their daughter, Leslie Owens Hinkle, wrote in an e-mail to the Times that “my mother died peacefully at home.”
Jim Owens died last June 6, also in Bigfork at age 82. Jim Owens was coach of the Huskies from 1957-74, becoming one of the most influential figures in school history by leading UW to three Rose Bowls, including wins in the 1960 and 1961 games. He was 99-82-6 overall. He is memoralized with a statue at the entrance of Husky Stadium. Here’s more on Owens’ legacy from Bud Withers last June.
