Born on 10/16/1953 in St. Louis, Missouri, Wesley lived a life marked by hard work and humor. He worked hard, he played hard. Wesley was known to enjoy sports, and not just watching them.

At work they called him “pops” and his grandkids called him “gramps.” Wesley is survived by his son, Justin Kamplain, his grandchildren Bella Kamplain and Darrell Kamplain, and his sisters Melissa McCaskill and Melinda Block. Welsey’s presence will be dearly missed but his spirit will live on through the memories we cherish.

She grew up the middle child of two sisters in the Christian County area of Elkhead, Missouri, during the Great Depression. She always said, “We didn’t know we were poor, because everyone we knew was in the same boat, but we knew we were loved and that helped us kids get through.” Doris attended elementary school at the two room Red Oak School, at Elkhead. She attended Ava High School, in Ava, Missouri, graduating in 1944. After graduation, she moved to Springfield, Missouri, where she worked numerous jobs throughout her work life, none meaning as much to her as being a floral designer for nearly fifty years. Doris loved flowers, and her work was so exquisite that customers followed her from flower shop to flower shop, wherever she was working, forming many long-time friendships. She even took special requests from some of those customers after retiring from the floral industry, including doing all the flowers for a large wedding. No matter where Doris worked, she was well liked by everyone. Not many can say they never had an enemy, but according to her daughter, Marilyn, this was very true, which was apparent with over 100 friends and family sending her Christmas and birthday cards every year. On July 8, 1945, she married Sergeant Irvin L. Batzel, who was serving in the United States Army, when they married. They shared 61 years together until his passing September 24 th, 2006. To this union two daughters were born, Carolyn Jeanette, and Marilyn Annette. On August 19th, 2008, Doris married William Clyde Iorg. They were married 9-years until his death, August 25 th, 2017. In addition to Irvin and Clyde, Doris was preceded in death by her daughter, Carolyn Barnes, Son-In-Law: Jimmie Barnes, her parents, and a sister, Dorene Shortt, and a niece Sandra Weter. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law: Marilyn and Roger Ison, grandchildren, Clarindia and Darrell Barnes, and Brian Ison and wife, Tracy. She is survived by one great-grandchild, Lauren Barnes, a sister, Dortheta Stracke, and a host of nieces, nephews, and many cousins, a long-time friend, Donna Baucom and many, many other good friends. Visitation will be Monday, February 26, 2024 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Greenlawn Funeral Home North. Funeral services will be at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, at the funeral home.

In loving memory of O’Dell Dale Collins, a woman whose gentle spirit graced each life she touched, it is with a heavy heart that we announce her passing on Saturday, February 17, 2024, in Cox South Medical Center, Springfield, Missouri. As she departs from this world, we remember her as a devoted mother to her children: Frank, Cathy, Cindy, and Dan, and a cherished grandmother to nine grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. Born to Earnest E. and Ada June (Collins) McCullough on Thursday, August 16, 1934, in Grant Parrish, Louisiana, Dale’s life was like a garden, where she lovingly nurtured growth and beauty. She tended to various plants and flowers over her lifetime, growing gorgeousness and strength. Her hands, skilled in the art of upholstery, brought new life to old furniture, a true artisan in her own right. Despite hardships and challenges, she remained resilient and steadfast in her pursuits. As we honor her memory, we reflect on the joy she brought through her Christmas cookies, jams, and jellies, a sweet reminder of her love that will forever linger in our hearts. Dale’s sweet smile blessed everyone around her. She loved to dance and listen to the hymns she grew up with. She was dedicated to Jesus Christ and attended Aulsbury Chapel when she lived near the Bonne Terre, Missouri area. Dale was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Grace Snodgrass; her partner of 32 years, Lee Collins; a son-in-law, Larry Winch; and daughter-in-law, Lisa Collins. She is survived by her four children: Frank Collins, Cathy Winch-Henson and her husband, Denver Henson, Cindy Canfield and her husband, John M. Canfield, II, and Dan Collins and his wife, Gabby Collins; nine grandchildren and their spouses, Corey and Tina Winch, Kyle and Schea Winch, Andrew and Alaina Winch, Clara Seleena Canfield, and Anthony Jones, Johnell Canfield and Kyle Kapalla, John M. Canfield, III and Maclee Canfield, Derek Collins, Ben and Chelsea Collins, and Theo Collins; twelve great-grandchildren, Kayliegh, Kamryn, Kollin, Raegan, Morgan, Avery, Annabel, Rush, Rip, Emma, Easton and Ainsley; five siblings: Margie Gilley, Ida Moore, Norma Cruze, Eugene McCullough, and Curtis McCullough, numerous nieces and nephews, other family members and friends. In celebrating her life, we invite all who knew and loved O’Dell “Dale” to join us by celebrating her life on Monday, February 26, 2024, at C.Z. Boyer & Son Funeral Home in Bonne Terre. Visitation will begin from 9:00 A.M. until service time of 11:00 A.M. where we will gather to pay tribute to her legacy and bid her a fond farewell, with Dan Collins will be officiating.

Joseph Stewart

Nov 26, 1933 - Feb 15, 2024

location-icon

Springfield, MO

Joseph "Joe" Stewart age 90 of Springfield, Mo, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 15, 2024. Joe was born on Sunday, November 26, 1933, in Memphis, Tennessee. It was a happy and grateful experience for his parents, Moncie and Thelma Stewart, as they lost a baby girl who had died in Texas. When Joe was seven, his father accepted a job as a Cooper in Pekin, Illinois. (A Cooper is a maker of barrels.) It was a stable, loving family with just the three of them. After having known Joe for so long, I can imagine he was a rather boisterous little baby boy and a bit spoiled since his parents had suffered the loss of their first child. He grew up, attended Pekin Public Schools, and graduated from Pekin High School in 1952. Joe’s work ethic, perseverance, and determination served him well. He began working at a grocery store when he was in the seventh grade and eventually became owner of the store—not a large store but profitable, busy, and a good fit for the community. His personality and responsible ways made it a success. He sold the store after several years and began his long-lasting career in sales – Meat, pharmaceuticals, trailers with some engines thrown in! His huge quest for learning has been an asset in all his endeavors. His greatest love was the last nineteen and a half years he spent working for Cardinal Health. While still in Pekin, Il., he married, and from this first marriage, was blessed with a lovely and talented daughter, Marla. When a pharmaceutical company offered him a sales position, he accepted and moved to Springfield, Missouri, in 1970. He married Clarlene, established roots, and made many friends. He and Clarlene have lived in the same house since their marriage in 1972. Joe had a great love for all sports, especially football—Chicago Bears and Arkansas Razorbacks. He and Clarlene attended many games in Fayetteville and made many friends from this activity. Golf, snow-skiing, and travel were so enjoyable for him, too. Joe loved animals, (especially boxers), and was a fan of history and museums. Along the way, he remained honest and kind. He was respectful of all peoples. He has been an enthusiastic supporter of Clarlene’s career and activities, continuing to be a good listener, nonprejudicial, and a helpful teammate! He was a team player wherever he was! He loved God, family, and friends. He was truly one of the good guys! He is survived by his daughter, Marla; a sister, Claudia; his second wife, Clarlene; grandchildren and great grandchildren. Memorial donations can be made to Convoy of Hope, PO Box 1125, Springfield, Mo. 65801 or TAPS No Kill Animal Shelter, 100 Taps Lane, Pekin, IL 61554 or a charity of choice. A Celebration of Life will be on Monday, February 26, at 2:00 pm. at the Klingner Cope Family Funeral Home, 4500 S. Lone Pine Ave, Springfield, Mo 65804.
