Jeannine M. Jones (age 78) passed away at her home with her children by her side, on Friday June 11, 2021.
Born October 6, 1942 in St. Louis, Missouri to Wade & Hilda Kellison, the oldest of 3 children (brother Neil & sister Susan). Jeannine (Donald B. Struemph) became a mother to son Charles, and daughters Theresa and Terry. She later found her perfect match in Phillip M Jones.
Jeannine’s true talent in life was being the maternal figure to most who knew her. She helped raise not only her children and grandchildren but so many others children as well. Jeannine had many experienced lessons and was always the first everyone called for help. She taught us that everything’s going to be alright,to work hard, strive to be your best, and to never give up.
Jeannine always loved celebrating her Irish Heritage while “playing with the leprechauns”, and enjoyed watching the Cardinals.
Jeannine is preceded in death by her parents Wade & Hilda Kellison, her husband of 37 years Phillip M Jones and her son-in-law James E. Summers Jr.
She is survived by her siblings Neil Kellison & Susan Kurlander, her children Charles Struemph, Theresa Henry and Terry Summers, her grandchildren Nathan Henry (Brennan), Brock Summers (Stephanie), and Kelsey Summers (Andrew), her great-grandchildren Greyson, Madison and Savanna, and Nini to Jack and Sydney.
The memorial service and luncheon will be held Saturday June 19th, 2021, at 11AM at Immaculate Conception in Maplewood, MO. 63143
