Kernodle

April 2, 2014

Jamie Dean Kernodle lifelong resident of North Salem died April 2 in Danville Regional Rehabilitation in Danville. He was 89.

Born on Feb. 14, 1925, he was the son of the late Mary (Spears) and Lawrence O. (Gip) Kernodle and stepmother, Margaret Kernodle. He married Jean Louise (Wolfe) Kernodle and she preceded him in death on Sept. 14, 2011. They were married for 65 years.

Mr. Kernodle retired in 1981 after working for 30 years at Allison Division of GM as a machinist.

A lifelong member of the North Salem United Methodist Church, Mr. Kernodle served on its board of trustees, and with his wife, co-chaired the Old-Fashioned Days breakfast at the church for many years.

He was well known for his bountiful vegetable gardens, beautiful flower plantings, and fruit trees. A plot of 1500 gladiolus bulbs would produce countless bouquets, many of which went to friends in hospital or nursing care; others to neighbors and family, and one for the home dining table. A patch of 600 strawberry plants supplied family freezers throughout the winter. His orchard produced many bushels of apples, pears, peaches, and grapes, with which he made and shared his home made wine.

His skills in painting, trim carpentry, wood staining and finishing kept him in demand until he was in his late seventies. He was also an avid fisherman.

He is survived by brothers, Dick Kernodle of Richland, Wash., and Larry Kernodle of Indianapolis; children, Robert (Marilyn) Kernodle of Savannah, Ga., John (Karen) Kernodle of Jamestown, and Linda McGuire of Bloomingdale; grandchildren, Amy Kernodle of Lizton, Matt (Chrissy) Kernodle of Savannah, Ga., Jason (Holly) Kernodle of Zionsville, Amanda (Alex) Vancel of Crawfordsville, and Devon McGuire of Bloomingdale; and great-grandchildren, Alexa Kirby, Camron Kernodle, Jonah Kernodle, Presley Rigdon, Ashley Kernodle ,and Adah Kernodle.

In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by brothers, Norman Kernodle of Truth or Consequences, N.M., and Joel Kernodle of Indianapolis.

Services will take place at 2 p.m. April 13 in the North Salem United Methodist Church with the Rev. Ann Spahr officiating.

Visitation will be from noon until time of service in the church.

Memorial contributions may be made to the North Salem United Methodist Church, PO Box 238, North Salem, IN 46165.
