Jessie E. Methvin

In Loving Memory Of Jessica “Jessie” Methvin Jessica Elizabeth Methvin left this world at the young age of 27 on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 after struggling with cancer treatments for the past six months in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. We may not be able to reason the purpose of events but God takes care of her now with new hope. She was born July 21, 1983 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Jessie attended school in Logan, Iowa up until the fourth grade and then finished her elementary schooling up through graduation in Denison, Iowa. She then joined the army in 2001 and was honorably discharged after reaching a rank of Specialist E-4. While in the military service she was stationed in South Carolina and Colorado. Later Jessie continued further schooling in massage therapy. Jessie met her husband to be, Russ, while she was living in Colorado. On June 10, 2006 she and Russ were married. Together they lived in Washington and spent three years in Tennessee and upon their arrival in North Carolina she merged her battle with cancer. While in Denison growing up, Jessie, participated in dance and band. She played the clarinet and the trumpet. Her interest in the great outdoors was not her favorite in her young years until meeting Russ. She would go with him pretty much anywhere. With Russ she enjoyed exploring whether it be the city or outdoors. She always looked back on the hikes she accomplished through Colorado and around Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Rainer, Washington. One or her most memorable trips was when she took on Washington DC with her one year old daughter Phoebe. She looked forward to sharing more adventures with Phoebe. Agreed by all, Jessie and Russ made a nice couple. She would help him enjoy life and he would help her become a woman. Jessie enjoyed shopping, Facebook and texting to keep in touch with friends and family. Jessie’s friends all noted that she was a very loyal and trusted friend. She always stood by their side no matter what. Above all Jessie loved to share time with her family. A cozy day with everyone curled up on the couch and a movie was a perfect day indeed. Through the entire six month battle with cancer Jessie kept her head up and looked to the future. She continued to wonder where Phoebe would go to college and what she would do. She continued to talk about trips and spending as much time with family as she could to the very end. Jessie is preceded in death by her grand-mother, Doris Jensen. Jessie is survived by her husband, Russell Methvin, and daughter, Phoebe, of Raeford, NC; father, James Clinkenbeard, his wife Evonne and sister, Rae and brother, Bryce of Denison, Iowa.; mother, Barbara Clinkenbeard and sisters, Jaclene and Whitney Reimers of Council Bluffs. father-in-law, Ray Methvin and mother-in-law, Sondra Methvin of Loretto, Tennessee; grand-father, Kenneth Clinkenbeard and grand-mother, Marilyn Clinkenbeard of Mondamin, Iowa, grand-father Harold Jensen of Council Bluffs, Iowa. and many more family members and friends.
