Service Location: First Southern Baptist Church of Mesa/Heart of Mesa, 851 North Stapley Drive, Mesa, AZ

Revenell M Jammes, Nell, 87, passed away peacefully January 15, 2018 in Mesa, Arizona.  A beautiful Christian woman, she is survived by her loving husband Frank, daughters Marsha (Marti) Bookstein and Jayne, grandson Bryan Campbell (Heather) and their two sons Kai and Jake. She was a great example of love in action, and considered her two great grandsons her greatest gifts.

Moving to Holmes County, FL from Alabama shortly after her birth, Nell excelled in school. An only child, she loved her Mama and her many cousins. Nell chose to continue her education with secretarial school, and became a trail-blazing working mother in the 1950’s and 60’s.  While the family lived and worshipped in Cocoa Beach, FL, Nell did classified secretarial work in both engineering and Human Resources, and thus began her deep love, interest and support of all U.S. space exploration programs.  Later she owned Copper State Supply Co in Mesa, and was proud of the accomplishments of this woman-owned business.

Visitation will be held Friday Jan 19 at A Wise Choice Desert View Chapel, 9702 East Apache Trail, Mesa 85207 from 5PM – 8PM. Funeral services will be Saturday Jan 20 at First Southern Baptist Church of Mesa/Heart of Mesa, 851 North Stapley Drive, Mesa, 85203 at 2:00 PM.

Peel Funeral Home, 301 E. Evans Ave, Bonifay, FL will assist the family on Wednesday, January 24.  Visitation will be at the Funeral Home at 9:00 AM, with Services at 10:00 AM, followed by a committal service at East Pittman Baptist Church Cemetery.

Nell, like her beloved Mama, loved flowers. She also loved her church home, and donations may be made in her honor to the Heart of Mesa Church, above.

  • Jayne, Marti, and Family –
    Even though years have passed since those magical days growing up with my childhood BFF Jayne in Cocoa Beach, I’ll always remember Nell and Mama, sitting at the kitchen table. When Jayne and I would come inside from swimming in their pool, Nell and Mama would make us sandwiches and iced tea, and make sure we waited 30 minutes before swimming again. Oh, and they cautioned us, “Don’t call boys!,” which of course we did! These and many more memories are woven into the tapestry of our childhood – irreplaceable and unforgettable memories made possible because of the kindness and loveliness of Nell and Mama. Wishing your family Comfort at this time, knowing Nell is in Jesus’ arms now, and Joy in His Eternal Promise!

  • My deep condolences to the Jammes family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. His written word the Bible in the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14. Please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
    Sissy
