  • Notes 
    • Juanita V. Madden; (August 21, 1912 - November 2, 2012) ; Juanita Belcher Jones Madden at 100 is singing in heaven now - the heaven she and her brothers and sisters sang about in many churches and on radio for many years. She went into the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ November 2, 2012, listening to a recording of her singing with her sisters and brother. Born August 21, 1912 to Henry and Leora (Seaton) Belcher, she was the eldest of her siblings. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings: Imogene Peterson, Olive Webber, Audrey Luker, and Hank Belcher. She married Herschel Jones in 1932 and they had two sons, Richard Wayne and Thomas Michael. Her husband and sons preceded her in death. Later she married Hallie Madden, who also preceded her in death. She was a charter member of Grace Memorial Church in Mount Carmel, Illinois. Into their eighties, Juanita and her sister Olive served as organist and pianist for their church. When her nephew George Dooms founded TTT Christian Youth Ministries (formerly Tri-State Youth for Christ) in 1966, she was an ardent prayer partner and enthusiastic supporter across the years. She is survived by several nieces and nephews, and her prayer partner and caregiver, Judy Larson. A graveside service will be at 2 p.m. on Monday, November 5, 2012 at Highland Memorial Cemetery.
