Juliana Frances Mashburn

JERSEYVILLE - Juliana Frances Mashburn, 103, died at 9:30 a.m., Monday, May 14, 2018 at the home of her daughter & son in-law.

She was born in Jersey County on Oct. 8, 1914, and was the only child born to Walter and Anna (Jilek) Cope.
Juliana attended Jersey Township High School, and at 22 years of age married L. Leon Mashburn. The two married on Aug. 4, 1937 in St. Charles, Mo., and their marriage was blessed with two children and 46 years together before his death on Nov. 6, 1983.
She was devout in her Catholic faith, and was steadfast in her love for family. Her mother died when Juliana was just 14 years of age, and was lovingly cared for by her aunt and uncles. Her giving and loving nature was present as she cared for her father in his elderly years, and later for her husband after his devastating car accident.
Juliana also possessed a love of life, and had the uncanny ability to adjust and adapt to any situation. She was young at heart and jumped at every opportunity to try a new adventure and see the world.
She is survived by her daughter and son in-law, Ann and Charles Lane of Jerseyville; her two grandchildren, Tracey (Jerry) Bryce of Rosemount, Mn. and Chuck (Danielle) Lane of Centralia; and four great grandchildren, Carson Andrew Bryce, Gracie Ann Bryce, Parker Charles Lane and Mikayla Arlene Lane.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her son, Richard "Dickie' Mashburn on Feb. 18, 2011.
Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville.
A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Jerseyville, with Father Steve Pohlman officiating.
Burial will take place in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Jerseyville.
Memorials may be given to the Jersey County Health Department or to BJC Hospice.
