Peggy Jelinek

June 9, 1933 ~ May 27, 2018

Peggy Jean (Jones) Jelinek was born June 9, 1933 in Anthony, KS. She was the youngest child born to Albert and Marian (Jeffries) Jones. She graduated from Anthony High School and later went to cosmetology school. She married Joe Jelinek on June 7, 1952 in Phoenix City, Alabama and to this union they were blessed with two children, Marilyn and Richard.

Peggy spent several years working at Cessna and also had her own beauty shop in downtown Anthony, KS. Her most memorable years were raising her kids while working alongside Joe on the farm, custom harvesting, and managing their fertilizer business. Peggy was active in many groups within her community from the local Saddle Club to knitting groups. After retirement, Peggy and Joe spent time with grandkids and traveled some. She and Joe loved to go to the casinos along with their friends Chuck and Barbara Holomek.

Peggy was very artistic and loved creating different arts and crafts. She painted, sketched, knitted, sculpted, basket-weaved, and sewed many clothes for her family. She also loved animals, especially her horse Billy Chick and dog Sparky. Peggy also enjoyed gardening beside Joe.

Peggy passed away Sunday, May 27, 2018 at the hospital in Anthony, KS at the age of 84. She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Marian Jones; her son, Richard Jelinek; brother, Willis Jones; sisters, Nadine Clark and Genevieve Barber and two great-grandchildren.

Peggy will be deeply missed by her husband, Joe Jelinek of Bluff City, Ks; daughter, Marilyn Osborn and husband Jerry of Oxford, KS; daughter-in-law, Susan Jelinek of Anthony, KS; grandchildren, Stacie Osborn of Oxford, KS, Scott Osborn of Oxford KS, Sara Reneau of Medford, OK, Nicole Blair of Anthony, KS, Adam Jelinek and wife Jennifer of Bloomington, IL; great-grandchildren, Ariel Wilcox, Mikkie Neilson, Bradi Osborn, Dallton and Dalen Blair, Nicholas and Kaitlyn Jelinek, Richard Nowell, Raylee and Jesse Reneau; sister, Mary Ann Johnson and many friends and family.

I am at peace, my soul’s at rest. There is no need for tears for with your love I was so blessed for all those many years.

I have fond memories of Peggy - especially her home made Chicken & Noodles that I had the pleasure of tasting for the first time in South Dakota during the '68 wheat havest. Then I was invited into the Jelinek home while on leave for more Chicken & Noodles made with love. She was a wonderfuI Lady who will be deeply missed and I know it is a great loss for the family.


Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jelinek Family

She's Gone Home

The light went out in her eyes

unheard were her peaceful sighs

as her spirit began to blur

God's Angels came for her

They gently took her home

and as she left this earthly loam

she walked and talked again

and smiled with an amazing grin

Sheno longer felt any pain

no worries about worldly gain

With eyes again shining bright

sparkling with God's glowing light

she met St Peter at heaven's gate

to accept her eternal glorious fate

She knew Jesus cast out all sin

and Jesus knew all that was within

This was her new heavenly world

Peace love and happiness unfurled

to wrap her in arms open wide

our Lord forever by her side.


Joe, Marilyn and family,
