Obituary for Ruth Marie Jahnel

Ruth Marie Jahnel, age 88, of Mt. Vernon, Missouri, passed away at 10:22 a.m. on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at her home. She was born April 21, 1930, in New Haven, Iowa, the daughter of Herbert and Daisy (Fitzl) Johanns.

Ruth was a 1948 graduate of St. Mary’s Catholic High School, in New Haven, Iowa. She farmed with her husband until 1970, and then along with her family operated Jahnel’s Liquor Store in Mt. Vernon for over 48 years. She was a faithful member of the St. Susanne Catholic Church in Mt. Vernon. She was proud of her work ethic and cherished family time. She treasured her relationship with the Schweigers and enjoyed getting together with them to play cards or dominoes – even when Suzy would win.

On June 7, 1949, she married Robert Jahnel in New Haven, Iowa. He preceded her in death on June 19, 1999.

Ruth is survived by her devoted daughter, Cindy Lacy, of Mt. Vernon; two granddaughters, Kristin Tartar and her wonderful husband, Seth, of Kansas City, Missouri and Rachel Lacy of Marionville, Missouri; two great-granddaughters, Abi and Lexie; three brothers, Herb Johanns and his wife, Marilyn, and James Johanns, and his wife, Jane, all of Iowa and Jerome Johanns and his wife, Darlene, of Missouri; one sister, Lucy Schweiger and her husband, Miles, of Missouri and several fabulous nieces and nephews, with Jack being her favorite and many beloved friends and customers.

Her parents, Herbert and Daisy, husband, Robert, son, Russell, in 2013, and a daughter and son who died in infancy, preceded her in death.

A funeral mass, under the direction of the Fossett-Mosher Funeral Home, in Mt. Vernon, Missouri, will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at the St. Susanne Catholic Church in Mt. Vernon.
