BARRY, Ill. -- Julianne "Annie" Fesler, 52, of Barry, died quietly Sunday (April 20, 2014) under the unending watchful care of her mother at Blessing Hospital in Quincy. Annie was born May 14, 1961, in Quincy, to John Arthur and Delilah "Jonie" Hill Fesler. Faced with many challenges, Annie attended school in Pittsfield until the age of 21. Annie approached life with the zest and unending energy presented by most inquisitive young children. To that end, you always knew when she was in the room, whether the exchange was a "Hi! How are you today?" or "Hi, what's your name?" She was a one-person social committee. Annie brought a smile on even the toughest day and reminded us how simple life really can and should be. The joy of her life was spending time with family, feeding the cows and hogs on the family farm, helping with household chores, or working in the garden. Annie loved animals and was blessed to have many pets over the years, namely "Peter" her bird, a dog "Pugly," a dog "Brandon," and a host of many other toys and friends who were lucky to receive her unending love and care. Life was good for Annie when she was watching her favorite cartoons/television shows, doing latch hook, or writing "mail." She will be sadly missed by her surviving immediate family which includes her mother, Jonie; and five siblings, Jon (Marry) Fesler, Jeffrey (Cindy) Fesler, Jerilynn (Robert) Legate, Joey (Karen) Fesler, and Jaynalee Hively. Nieces and nephews also survive, Brome and Marica Fesler, Andy, Cameo, and Luke Fesler and Tabitha Bennett, Kayri Reynolds and Kaydi, Kayci and Kayli Legate, Noah and Avah, and Izack, Aleck, and Erick Hively; along with seven great-nieces and great-nephews. She was preceded in death by her dad, "Daddy" on Feb. 23, 2014. SERVICES: 10:30 a.m. graveside Thursday in Park Lawn Cemetery with the Rev. Sheila Kelly conducting. VISITATION: 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Niebur Funeral Chapel, Barry. MEMORIALS: Barry United Methodist Church F.R.O.G. class or donor's choice. ARRANGEMENTS: Niebur Funeral Chapel, Barry.
