Jonilea “Jona” Jassek, 55, of Gillette, WY passed away November 5, 2020 after months of battling lung cancer. She will be dearly missed and always remembered for her generous heart and abundant strength.
Jona was born May 15, 1965 in Amarillo, TX to Edna Mae Dyer and John Everett Fox. She was raised with her brother and later found she was one of six siblings. For over 33 years she shared a life with her soul mate and love of her life Dean Jay Jassek, and later moved to Gillette, WY where they settled down and continued to raise four children together: Robert “Ray” Young, Sonja Rohrbach (Young), John Young, and Anthony Jassek. Their love story is a remarkable one that taught their children that love can conquer all.
Once their children were older, they continued their partnership in parenting with their grandson, Domanick Young (16). Jona loved her grandchildren and loved every moment she could endure with them. Ray began that chapter for her and continued with Teague (13), Taven (12), Trissy (9), and Traycen (7). Sonja also added to the grandchildren chapter with Jasmine (13), Ashton (7), and Zachariah (4).
To know Jona was to know what it was to give abundantly. Her love was deep, and she would do all she could for her loved ones and friends. She showed strength by overcoming so many obstacles in her life, which resulted with the success of the family she always dreamed of having.
Jona is also survived by her brothers; John “Mike” Fox (Amarillo, TX), Richard Barker (Portalas, NM), Daniel “Danny” Lance (Great Falls, TX).
A celebration of life luncheon will be held 12:00 PM, Saturday, November 14, 2020 at the Mt. Pisgah Cemetery in Gillette, WY. The family welcomes you to join them for dinner in remembrance of Jona and the imprint she has brought to their lives and others.
