Eursell Jett Obituary
Eursell Jett

Ventura, CA

On January 14 a very dear man passed away. His name was Eursell Jett, born in 1928 in Waldron, Arkansas. Living on a farm he developed a strong work ethic and a uncanny skill for fixing anything dealing with plumbing, electricity or solving problems. in 1947 Eursell and his brother Eugene came to California. It was here that he met and married Betty Lemley, they raised their family, Merry, Robbie, Greg in Saticoy and El Rio. Eursell found work delivering milk for Golden Top and Chase Bros. Dairy, as years went by Eursell sensed there would be a end to door to door milk deliveries and so he took a job with Ventura then later with Oxnard Colleges as ground supervisor. When the children were grown Eursell and Betty decided to go there separate ways, Eursell moved to Buena Ventura Mobil Home Estates and became well known as a handyman and everybody's friend. He met Harriet Curry and they remained best friends for twenty-two years, taking cruises and road trips with a occasional visit to Waldron. Eursell was predeceased by his sister Iva Ridenhour and brothers Lester (Verdi) and Clifford. There remains to mourn him is his brother Eugene (Melva) of Whittier Ca. sisters Anna Beaty, Penn Valley, Ca. and Jo Jackson Waldron Arkansas, daughter Merry Hinkle Coeur d'Alene ID., Robbie (Debbie) Olancha Ca., Greg Coeur d'Alene ID. 9 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. There will be no formal services but Eursell hoped there would be a party to celebrate his life, and so there shall be, at a later date.
