Jamie D. Phelps, 43, of Marissa, IL, born February 25, 1980, in Red Bud, IL, passed away on Sunday May 28, 2023, at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO. She was a graphic designer.
Jamie was a beautiful soul. She was a person that, if she loved you, she loved you with her whole entire soul and made sure you knew it. Family was very important to Jamie; her nieces, nephews, and all 11 great nieces and nephews and a great-great nephew were her pride-and-joy. They loved their “Aunt Jagie” so much; they all knew she was “in their corner”. She loved taking pictures and was great at it, and the official family photographer. Jamie loved adventures, and along with her friends, was always off hiking, exploring, or just hanging out in new places. Jamie loved game nights with the kids, Monday nights at her sister’s and Saturdays with her friends. The world has lost a beautiful angel. She was so loved and will be missed by so many.
Jamie was preceded in death by her parents – Benjamin D. and Darlene S. (Bingel) Phelps.
Surviving are her sister-Sandy (Robbie) Hahn and brother – Danny (Cara) Phelps, all of Marissa, seven nieces and nephews – Jenni (Travis) Steinwagner, Danielle (Nick) Kimmle, Brittany (Steve) Moll, Benjamin Phelps, Joseph (Charlotte) Phelps, Rachael (Matthew) Reuss and Hannah Phelps. Jamie is also survived by many great nieces and nephews, and one great-great nephew.
Memorials may be made to the Marissa Library or the Randolph County Humane Society.
In keeping with Jamie’s wishes, cremation is to take place with a private graveside service at Marissa TWP Cemetery. A public celebration of Jamie’s life is being planned in the near future.
Heil-Schuessler Funeral Home in Marissa, IL is in charge of arrangements.
