Jessie June Waite

Mar 10, 1918 - Sep 13, 2015


Jessie June Waite died peacefully September 13th of natural causes. Born March 10, 1918 in Sacramento to George Myrick and Ruth Alderich she grew up in the Sacramento area before serving her country as a captain in the Women’s Army Corp during World War 2. Before the war she married Gene Manary and had a daughter, Carol, where they raised her in the Sacramento area. Along with being an amazing mother, Jessie June also worked for 34 years as a manager for the Sacramento Employment Services. During this time Jessie also remarried to William Waite where they were married for 41 years. Jessie loved traveling, reading, and spending as much time with her grandchildren as she possibly could. She will always be remembered for being a loving person who always welcomed people into her home with a smile along with always making sure her grandchildren were doing the right things and treating all people with kindness and respect. Most importantly she was a great mother figure to her grandchildren who lost their mother too soon and helped them become the great people they are today…especially the youngest Sarah.
Preceded in death by her daughter Carol, she is survived by her husband William Waite, step children Jed and John Waite, grandchildren David Myers, Michael Myers, Sarah Myers-Hernandez, step-grandchildren Tori Waite, Brooke Waite, Jeffery Waite, Mike Waite.
Our deepest heartfelt gratitude also goes to the wonderful folks who helped take care of Jessie over the last few difficult years. First and foremost their amazing neighbor Jenny O’Hara who was always there to assist both Jessie and Bill with anything they would need help with along with coordinating nurse schedules and helping both of them with their finances. Words can’t express how thankful we are for the loving attention you provided since we are all living far away and unable to help as much as we like. Also, the wonderful caregivers Kelly Christiansen, JayAnn Troilo, Stephanie Bacon, and Erma Robertson, and Hospice who made her as comfortable as she could be and always made her smile.
