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.
