Jeanne Anne Stokes Obituary
Stokes, Jeanne Anne

Jeanne Anne Stokes, our beloved sister, age 53, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.

Jeanne was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, the youngest child of Vincent and Louise Stokes, but spent the last 30 years living in Rio Rancho, NM. She was dearly loved by all her family and friends â€" to know her was to love her! Her wonderful sense of humor, her big hugs and her beautiful smile endeared her to all who knew her. She loved her Special Olympics activities, cooking, dancing, playing cards, going out to eat and visiting with family and friends. She was always ready for travel and adventure. She loved cruises, camping, road trips and weekends at the casino playing the slot machines.

Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents, and is survived by her brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, aunts and cousins. She is survived by her sister Patricia Stokes; her brother James Stokes and his wife Nancy; her brother Stephen Stokes and his wife Patricia; her sister Theresa Michael and husband Tameru; as well as nieces and nephews, Etsegenet, Kaye, Jana, Nathaniel and David.

A Visitation will be held Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with a Memorial Service to follow at 11:00 a.m. at FRENCH - Westside. Burial will be at the Resurrection Cemetery in Jefferson City, Missouri. Because Jeanne loved participating in the Special Olympics, the family suggests that donations be made in lieu of flowers to Rio Rancho Special Olympics, care of Debbie Torres, 847 Chuckwagon Road SE, Rio Rancho, New Mexico 87124.

Jeanne brought us joy and laughter, hugs and smiles, and witty comments that will continue to bring us smiles and tears as we remember her. Our precious sister will be missed and loved by us forever; but she has gone home and we look forward to being with her in eternity.
