CARBONDALE - Racheal Betty Jean Jamison, 3, of Carbondale, Illinois, went to be with the Lord at 11:46 a.m. Friday, April 19, 2013, at St. Louis, Children's Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri.
She was born on March 12, 2010, at Marion, Illinois.
Racheal had the sweetest personality, the most contagious smile, and the biggest fighting spirit. In August of 2012, she was diagnosed with leukemia, and spent the last eight months of her life fighting leukemia. Along the way, she made dozens of new friends and touched so many lives. She truly was and will always remain our little sunshine.
Besides her mom, Chelsea Burg of Carbondale and her dad James Jamison of Carbondale, she is survived by her grandparents Dale and Patricia Burg of Springfield, IL, Debby Wiseman and Michael Benz of Mechanicsburg, IL and Carla and Don Bishop of Carbondale; her aunts Chrissy Wiseman and Andrea Duling; her uncles William Burg, Thomas Wiseman and Gary Klinger; and cousins Malaki Wiseman, Aliyah Danley and Avery Wiseman and Alex Wiseman.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 25, 2013, at Calvary Campus Church in Carbondale and burial at Willowrest Cemetery in Carterville. Friends may call from 12 noon to 1 p.m. at the church. Memorials may be made to the family.
