Shirley Mae Jeske
Twin Falls, Idaho - Shirley Mae Jeske, 71, of Twin Falls, passed away at Ashley Manor in Kimberly on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s.
Shirley was born Jan. 22, 1941, in Ogden, Utah, to Roy and Opal Wilson. On Nov. 29, 1956, she married Fred Jeske, and together they raised five children. Shirley enjoyed bowling, reading, gardening, visiting with her friends, and her greatest passion was time spent with her grandchildren. “Grandmothers like letters. Even if they just consist of a squiggle and a dirty finger mark.”
Shirley is survived by her children, Mitchell Jeske, Mark (Lone) Jeske, Michele (Daks Clark) Jeske and Matt Jeske; her grandchildren, Melissa Rowe, Kurtis (Kim) Day, Danielle (Tyrell) Munger, Daysha Jeske, Autrey Jeske, Morgan Jeske, Brett Clark and Ryne Clark; her great-grandchildren, Sarah Day, Samantha Day, Madison Bauman, Tay Munger and Kristopher Day. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Fred Jeske; her son, Michael Jeske; and her great-grandson, Chance Michael Rowe.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the LDS Church located at 680 Hankins Road N. in Twin Falls. A viewing will not be held. Interment will follow at the Filer Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Dustin Godfrey and the staff at White Mortuary “Chapel by the Park.”
The family would like to give a special thanks to the staff at Ashley Manor in Kimberly and Guardian Home Health and Hospice.
