Jane Warren Jernigan

Jane Warren Jernigan went to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, April 28.  Family will receive friends on Friday, May 5 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Joyner’s Funeral Home in Wilson, NC.  A funeral service will be held Saturday, May 6 at 1:00 pm at West Nash United Methodist Church in Wilson, NC.  Interment will be immediately following the funeral service at Hillcrest Cemetery in Newton Grove, NC.  Reverend Heather Herrin Wong will officiate.

 

Jane is survived by her daughter, Kay Jernigan McGriff (Robert McGriff) of Springville, IN; son, Hugh Warren Jernigan (Don Dvorak) of Phoenix, AZ; and granddaughter, Anna Kay McGriff.

 

Jane was preceded in death by her parents, Blonnie Kemp Johnson and Earl Warren.

 

During her career, Jane faithfully served as the secretary for Grace Baptist Church, as well as working with BB&T, and even spent time as a 5th grade teacher.  However, she was known for her servant’s heart in her volunteer work with Meals on Wheels, March of Dimes, Cancer Crusade, American Heart Association, Den Mother of Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, and tutoring in the school system.  Jane also changed the lives of her neighbors in Wilson County through her work with CHEW, Hope Station, and Project Agape.

 

Jane loved her church family at West Nash United Methodist and gave back in many ways.  She served as a Sunday school teacher, Vacation Bible School teacher, member of multiple committees, certified Lay speaker, and a member and spokesperson for the United Methodist Women.  Jane will be dearly missed by her friends and family.
