Obituary for Wendell Flesher

Wendell  Flesher
Charles Wendell Flesher, 84, of Webb City, Missouri, left this life and entered his eternal rest on May 15, 2018.
He was born on Route 2, Jasper, Missouri, July 1, 1933, to Charles Albert and Cora Faye (Northway) Flesher, in the same home where his father was born and raised. As a teenager, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and renewed that commitment after marriage.

He grew up in the Alba, Missouri, community and graduated from Alba High School in 1951. From 1952 to 1954 he served in the United States Army. He married the love of his life, Jayne Hardy, May 12, 1956. God blessed their union with four children. She preceded him in death in 2014.
He fulfilled several vocations throughout his life, with the final one being as a maintenance mechanic at Safeway Bakery in Joplin, Missouri, retiring after 31 years.

He was an avid gardener, birdwatcher, and woodworker, who provided well for his family and also used his God-given abilities to benefit various churches as well as the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home. After retirement he could often be found visiting friends in the hospital or waiting with their families during difficult times.

Wendell is survived by: his children Addie Colleen Ratcliff of Lamar, Missouri; Tony Kurt Flesher and his wife Sandi of Oronogo, Missouri; Paula June Crawford and her husband Larry of Webb City, Missouri; Audra Lea Hunter and her husband Gary of Manteo, North Carolina; many grandchildren including Amber Adelaide Sobery and her husband Doug of Ballwin, Missouri; Megan Delia of Ozark, Missouri; Andrew Nelson Crawford and his wife Bethany of Webb City, Missouri; Carmen Jalea White and her husband Andrew of Manteo, North Carolina; Courtney Maye Dulworth and her husband Jason of Sullivan, Missouri; many great-grandchildren including Alexander William Moran, Johnathon Wendell “Speedy” Crawford, Lillian Adelaide “Lil’ Bit” Sobery, Mary Lynn “Sunbeam” Dulworth, Wesley James “Job” White, “Sundrop” on the way, as well as three great-great-grandchildren. Also surviving are his sister Barbara Ruth Nichols and her husband Bill of Carthage, Missouri; his brother George Albert Flesher and his wife Blanche of Carthage, Missouri; and numerous nieces and nephews."
