Obituary for JOANN McGEHEE

Mrs. Joann McGehee, age 81, of Billings, Missouri, passed away on Thursday, December 27, 2018 in Republic Nursing and Rehab, Republic, Missouri. She was born on March 24, 1937 in Billings, Missouri, the daughter of Arval Otis and Lillian (Welch) Hale.

Joann was united in marriage to Donald Benjamin “Don” McGehee on July 6, 1957, and they enjoyed 59 years together before Don’s death on February 15, 2017.

She had been employed with the Springfield News-Leader and Penny Power for many years.

Joann, a member of the First Baptist Church of Billings for over 50 years, served as the church pianist until just a few weeks before her death. Joann, lovingly called “JoJo” by her family, felt that the most important thing in her life was her family. She had enjoyed many fun times watching her children and grandchildren grow up, attending many of their sports activities throughout the years.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; and two brothers, Gerald and Harold.

Joann is survived by her three children and their spouses, Ben (Missy) McGehee, Penny (Rex) Merritt, and Kim (Greg) Jenisch; eight grandchildren and their spouses, Angie (Scotty) Allen, Kicia (Ted) VanZandt, Brittany (Robert) Wright, Amber (Jon) Still, Mallory Clinton, Kaleigh (Cody) Vaughn, Kelse (Corey) Davis, and Connor Jenisch; nine great grandchildren; and numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.

A visitation will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 30, 2018 in Meadors Funeral Home, 101 NE Pine, Billings, MO 65610. The funeral service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, December 31, 2018, also in the funeral home. Burial will follow the service in Smart Cemetery, Billings.
