Nellie Jean Pemberton flew home to the angels Sunday, March 6, 2011. She was born Dec. 30, 1948, in Fallon, Nev., but resided in Kingman most of her life.
She is survived by her mother, Mamie Pemberton May; daughter, Jaime Pemberton Wileman; sons, Michael and Jason Jackson; and grandchildren, Chad and Cassidy Wileman, Samantha Brock, Kaylee Jackson, Samantha and Lil' Jason Jackson. She cherished her grandchildren. Also surviving are two sisters, Mary Brock and Margaret Koenen; and one brother, John Pemberton. She had many nieces and nephews she loved dearly. Jeanie had many friends to whom she felt very close to her heart. She was preceded in death by her father, James Pemberton.
We will be celebrating her life in the Hualapai Mountains, which were one of her favorite places, starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 19, at Recreation Area 1. Please bring a dish to share and a story to tell. She will be missed but is resting in peace in the arms of the angels.
