Death: Nov. 17, 2009

Dorothy Marie (Roepke) Jones Barnett passed into her heavenly Father's arms, Tuesday morning, November 17, at her daughter's home in Joplin, Missouri. She was 94 years old. Dorothy was born in Greene County, Missouri, February 24, 1915. She was the daughter of Gustav J. Roepke and Hedrick A. (Hunholtz) Roepke. She spent the first half of her life in Springfield, Missouri. She later moved to Texas, Colorado, and Nevada; returning to the Joplin area for the last 20 years of her life. Dorothy was known for her generosity and kindness. She was an avid gardener, seamstress, and a woman of many talents. She loved to travel and meet new friends. Always quick witted, Dorothy never missed an opportunity to make someone laugh! Her parents, four sisters, five brothers, two husbands, a son, a stepdaughter, and one grandson preceded her in death. Survivors include three daughters, Sharon Royer and husband Lee, of Joplin, Zenith Jacob of Joplin, and Kyla Jones of Tacoma, Washington; 22 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; 16 great-great-grandchildren; 10 foster grandchildren; two siblings; and numerous other relatives and friends. The memorial service for Dorothy will be held at Thornhill-Dillon Mortuary, in Joplin, at 10 a.m. on Thursday, November 19. Interment will be at White Chapel Cemetery at 2 p.m. in Springfield, Missouri. The family would like to thank the members of The Road Church in Webb City and the nurses and doctors of St. Johns Hospital, Integrity Home Care, and St. John's Hospice. We would especially like to thank Erin, Tim, Sandy, and Angela for their kindness during the last few months.
