Jessie worked at the Merryville High School cafeteria for many years and was well known as “Aunt Jessie” by students, friends, and all who knew her.  The last couple of years she was not able to drive, but would not miss a ride going anywhere with anyone!!! She loved to travel, never met a stranger and was always making new friends.  Aunt Jessie always had a passion for collecting purses and Coke items.  We can picture her in heaven with a Coke in her hand!  If you were to visit her, she would always have a Coke to offer you.  She loved reading books, from romance to western and was always trading out with family and friends.

She will truly be missed and forever cherished in our hearts.
