Agnes Jean "Jeannie" Isner-Kunkel of Clayton, N.C., walked into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014.
She was born Nov. 13, 1940, in Elkins, and had been a Ventura County, Calif. resident for most of her life.
In 2007, she retired and moved to Clayton, N.C., to be closer to her daughter and her family.
Jeannie worked on Point Mugu and Port Hueneme Naval bases for approximately 35 years working for the Navy Exchange, MWR, Childcare, and the Commissary.
Her passion was for her family. She sacrificed selflessly for her children and, later, adored her grandchildren.
She was always willing to help anyone who needed it. Her loving and giving heart never expected anything in return. In a world of want and entitlement, Jeannie never expected anything from anyone, yet offered everything she had. Her heart and love were her greatest gifts, and only now with her passing is the true beauty of that gift fully understood. In a loveless world of priorities and busyness, love is sometimes ignored, forgotten or not seen. Sadly, only when it's gone do we fully understand the loss.
She is survived by her son, Harry E. Harshbarger and wife, Christine, of Burley, Idaho; daughter Sandra L. Parker and husband, Rickey, of Clayton, N.C.; her grandchildren, Trisha Robles, Cody Lane, Savannah Harshbarger, Sierra Harshbarger, twins, Jack and Eliana Parker and Sydney Harshbarger; and great-grandchild, Aviana Robles.
There are no words to express the void left in our hearts. We love you Mom. You will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts. One day we will meet again on the streets of gold.
There will not be a service at this time. Jeannie will be taken to her final resting place at Kelly Mountain Cemetery in West Virginia at the end of spring to be with her family that has preceded her in death.
