Hazel N. Jobe

April 20, 1918 - April 22, 2013

Hazel N. Jobe, 95, of California, Mo., went to heaven to be with Jesus and her husband Glenn and her many loved ones that were there waiting for her on Monday, April 22, 2013, two days after her 95th birthday. We believe the first thing Jesus will say to her is "Well done, good and faithful servant." She was born on April 20, 1918, the daughter of Albert and Mary (Shikles) Bolinger, both of whom preceded her in death. She attended Oak Hill School and California High School. She graduated from Central Missouri State University, and also attended the University of Missouri and Lincoln University in Jefferson City. She was married on February 17, 1940, in California, Mo. to Glenn S. Jobe who preceded her in death on June 1, 2008. She was an elementary teacher for over 40 years, and taught at Pilot Grove School, Sappington, Oak Dale, Latham and California. She was a member of First Baptist Church in California, and had been a member of Flag Springs Baptist Church and Green Grove Baptist Church as well. Hazel taught Sunday School for over 65 years and was a leader in Vacation Bible School for many years. Her life was teaching and loving her family. She was fond of saying, "I had over 3,000 students and I never had a bad one." She truly loved each one and spent her life in service to others. She is survived by two sons: Glenn David Jobe and wife Marilyn and Paul Jobe and wife Helen all of Columbia, Mo. and Diane Henry Jobe of Boonville; seven grandchildren: Jamie Shepherd and husband Scott of Jefferson City, Mo., Lori Jobe of Columbia, Mo., Greg Jobe and wife Susan of Gladstone, Mo., David Jobe and wife Becky of Macomb, Ill., Shawna Dunnaway and husband Shane of California, Mo., Cori Busby and husband Steve of Columbia, Mo., and Richard Wheeler also of Columbia, Mo.; 12 great-grandchildren, Haley and Hannah Cajandig, Javen, Chance, Kale and Zane Shepherd, Talon Jobe, Elijah, Enoch and Max Dunnaway and Kyla Lee and Ryan David Jobe; and one brother, Kelly Bolinger of Tacoma, Wash. She was preceded in death by two brothers: Layton and Ray Bolinger.
