Obituary for Jennie Mae Jones

Jennie Mae Jones age 96, formerly of Cambria, WI passed away on
Wednesday August 8, 2018. She was born on Sept 19, 1921 in the Town of
Springvale on the family farm, one mile west of Cambria. She was the 10th
of 14 children born to John and Loretta Slinger. Jennie Mae was a 1939
graduate of Cambria High School, and lived most of her life in the Village of
Cambria. On May 24, 1942 she married her high school sweetheart and the
love of her life Maurice M. Jones in San Francisco. This union lasted 71
years 8 months until his death in January of 2014. Jennie Mae was a lifelong
member of The First Presbyterian Church of Cambria, a charter
member of the Cambria American Legion Auxiliary and the Cambria village
clerk for 30 years. She loved playing cards with her sisters, friends and
family, watching golf, and was a fan of the Badgers and Packers. She also
enjoyed trips to Rural Letter Carriers conventions and reunions of the USS
Colorado with Maurice. Jennie Mae dearly loved her grandchildren and
great grandchildren and attended most of their school and sporting events
well into her 90’s. Survivors include her son Jeff (Linda), granddaughters
Angela Bancroft, Emily Jones, grandson Griffin (Sara) Jones, great
grandchildren Claudia (Tylor) Katze, Wyatt Bancroft (Bailey Brewer),
Wesley Bancroft and Grace Bancroft, sister-in-law Doris Patzlsberger and
over 350 nephews & nieces and other relatives. She was preceded in death
by her parents, brothers Bob, Dave, Jack, Temp, Chet, Frank, Joe, William
“Buck”, Del, Riley, and sisters Sally Campnell-Tessman, Sylvia Rhode, and
Loretta “Dolly” Foulkes. Jennie Mae was very protective and supportive of
her family, and didn’t get cheated out of life, as she out-lived all of her high
school classmates and all of her siblings. Funeral Services will be held at
11:30 AM on August 18, 2018, with visitation beginning at 9:30 AM until
the time of service at the FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, Cambria.
Memorials may be made to the Cambria American Legion Auxiliary or to
the First Presbyterian Church of Cambria. A special “Thank You” goes out
from Jennie Mae’s family to Alexandra Hasselberger and the staff of At
Home Again Rio, who cared for Jennie Mae for the past 20 months with
love, tenderness, patience and compassion. They made her final chapter a
best seller.
