Jessie Marie Wade passed away at The Homestead of Sherman Nursing Home on March 30, 2024.

Jessie Marie was born on June 7, 1929 to Clarence and Lois Begner in Princeville, Illinois. In 1946, she met B. F. Wade from Savoy, Texas. After a courtship, they were united in marriage at the Methodist Church in Peoria, Illinois on June 17, 1947.

They relocated to Sherman in 1948. To this marriage four children were born; Jimmie Lee, Pamela Marie, Cynthia Diane, and Treasa Renee, all are deceased.

Marie and B.F. enjoyed many chapters in life, including raising and educating their children, camping out and extensive traveling with a group throughout the United States, Canada, and twice to Alaska. They enjoyed square dancing and clogging (at the World’s Fair), gambling, playing bingo, playing games with friends, and just sitting on the driveway and waving at the passing motorist.

She is survived by her husband of 76 years and 10 months; six grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren.
