JUNNIE MAE AVEY, daughter of Woodford and Lucendia Crossland York was born June 4, 1933, in Bloodland, Missouri and departed this life on November 14, 2012, in Osage Beach, Missouri, at the age of seventy-nine years.

Junnie made a profession of faith in Christ at a young age and united with New Hope Freewill Baptist Church, where she was an active and faithful member for many years. The fellowship she shared with her church family through the years was very important to her. She loved each of them.

Junnie attended school in the Pulaski County area. She then moved to Fort Collins, Colorado and later Larime, Wyoming, before returning to the Richland community, where she remained until her passing.

On November 2, 1965, Junnie was united in marriage with Alvin Thomas Avey. Prior to his passing in October of 2007, they had celebrated forty-two years of love and laughter together.

Junnie enjoyed singing, especially gospel music. She even wrote her own songs and shared them with family and friends through the years.

She made her home a warm and welcome environment for her family and friends. However, she also enjoyed several hobbies. She enjoyed cooking, tending to her flower gardens, quilting and crocheting. Nothing compared to the time spent and memories made with her family. They were most important to her.

Junnie is survived by two sons, Woody Avey and his wife Peggy of Richland, and Shon Jacoby of Devils Elbow, Missouri; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; other relatives and many friends.

She was also preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, Molly York, Audry Hobbs and Merle York; and two brothers, Milford and Wilford York.

Junnie was a wonderful person with a kind heart. Although we will miss her, our loss was Heaven’s gain.
