COVINGTON, Ind. — Jan. 16, 1931 – Feb. 10, 2013

Jackie Bell Weese went to be with the Lord at 4:15 a.m. Feb. 10, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.

Jackie was born Jan. 16, 1931, in Catlin. She lived in Danville until 1970 and then moved to Chester.

She worked 23 years as the office supervisor at Chester Memorial Hospital. She treasured her many years in Chester, the many friends that she made at work and as a member of the United Methodist Church. She was currently residing in Covington, Ind.

She enjoyed cooking, shopping, quilting and reading the Bible. Jackie also spent many hours playing bridge and euchre with family and friends. She loved listening to Christian radio, especially Dr. Stanley, and was always up for a picnic. Jackie loved Mexican food, margaritas, her special Golden Cadillacs at bridge, and she was a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan. Her favorite TV show was “Wheel of Fortune.”

Jackie was preceded in death by parents, Harry and Mabel Bell; brothers, Robert Bell, Jim Bell, Warren Bell; sister Dorothy Budislik; sons, Kevin and Randy; daughter Cynthia; grandson Shawn Sams; and a special niece, Melinda Beckes.

She is survived by a sister, Ferne Brown; sister-in-law, Rene Bell; children, Cheryl Pruitt, Peggy (Robert) Sams, Steve (Astrid) Weese, Curt (Sue) Weese; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and special friend, Charley Phelps.

Graveside service will begin at 2 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 13, in the Chapel at Spring Hill Cemetery, Danville, with Pastor Joe Humrichous officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to the Covington Christian School, P.O. Box 267, Covington IN 47932.

Arrangements entrusted to: Dickerson Funeral Home, Veedersburg, Ind.
