BUTLER — Irene Jaynes was a devoted wife, mother and grandma. She was richly blessed with the spiritual gifts of goodness, kindness and long-suffering. No matter her circumstances, who she was with, or what she was doing, she would always remain positive and sweet.
Irene passed away Wednesday evening, Aug. 10, 2011, in The Cleveland Clinic. She was 65.
Born April 28, 1946, in Oschatz, Germany, to Alois and Elizabeth (Klaus) Brauchler, Irene came to this country and the Mansfield area at a young age. She graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in 1964.
Irene poured herself into her daughters and their families. More than a matriarch, she was a true friend to them. She enjoyed baking for her family, serving in her church, and being a grandma. She leaves a legacy of love and service. She impacted many lives through her example of faith, patience and kindness.
She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and was currently serving the Mount Vernon congregation as president of the Relief Society. She served a year as a missionary doing family history work in Salt Lake City (2007 to 2008) and dearly loved working on family histories.
She is loved by her husband, Roy R. Jaynes, whom she married June 26, 1965; their daughters and sons-in-law, Jolene and Wesley Hubbard of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, Andrea and Roger Packer of Fredericktown, and Tonya and Brent Packer of Kaysville, Utah; 10 grandchildren; her sister and brother-in-law, Suzanne and Robert Parrigan of Shelby; brothers and a sister-in-law, Robert Brauchler of Mansfield, and William and Marilyn Brauchler of Kansas City, Mo.; and nieces and nephews.
The Jaynes family will receive friends Friday evening, Aug. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home, Mansfield. Her funeral service will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1010 Beech St., Mount Vernon.
Friends may call on the family the hour prior to her funeral service in the Relief Society room of the church building. Burial will be in Shauck Cemetery.
