A memorial service to honor the life of June Appelfeller Jones will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Eichholtz Funeral Home in Bellefontaine by Pastors Floyd Lundy and Gene Marine. A graveside service will follow at the family’s convenience in Mount Victory.
She chose to be cremated.
She died June 14, 2012 in Knoxville, Tenn., where she had recently moved to be cared for by her daughter in the final weeks of her life in her battle with cancer.
She was born June 5, 1928 in Mount Victory, the daughter of Frank and Anna Mae Appelfeller. She married Walter G. Wagner in 1948. She married Robert “Bob” Jones on Dec. 23, 1994. He preceded her in death on Oct. 26, 2011. June and Bob enjoyed 17 wonderful years together, several of those years spent wintering in Florida and summer time at Indian Lake.
Surviving are two children, Cindee Luella (Douglas) Cox of Farragut, Tenn. and K. Edward “Kim” (Tara D.) Wagner of Bellefontaine; step-children, Robyn (George) Jones-Hahnert of Columbus, Jamie (B.J.) Jeffrey of Bellefontaine, Edward Hofmann of Chicago, Ill., and James “Jimbo” (Kelli) Hofmann of Bellefontaine; grandchildren, Jason M. (Melissa) Miller of St. Paris and Brooke E. (Jim) Senter of Farragut, Tenn.; step-grandchildren, Keisha Lombardo of Powell, James “Bo” (Lindsay) Hofmann of Hilliard, Billie Jeffrey of Huntsville, Aubree Jeffrey of Los Angeles, Calif., Rob Jeffrey and Eddie Jeffrey, both of Bellefontaine; and numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her beloved siblings, Marjorie Keller, Myra Quellette, Harry Appelfeller, Joseph Appelfeller and Raymond “Gus” Applefeller.
June graduated from Mount Victory Dudley Schools as the valedictorian of the class of 1946. During her work career she was employed at DAB, the Logan County Chamber of Commerce and Notestine’s Floor Covering.
For entertainment, she loved working crossword puzzles, boating in the sun on Indian Lake, building picture puzzles, playing board games with family, and her monthly card games with her long time Mount Victory friends, Dee Schertzer, Jeanne Mathews, Fran Pyers and Marilyn Battles.
However, nothing gave her more enjoyment than cooking a fine meal for her family members. She was a wonderful cook!
