Ernest Lawrence Jelley

Ernest Lawrence Jelley, 75, passed from these earthly bonds in the arms of His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, Aug 20, 2012 at his home in Ashland after a long battle with cancer.
He was born April 18, 1937 in Lakeview to Edward Fisher Jelley and Margaret Elizabeth Jelley.
Whenever jobs were hard to come by, Ernest was always willing and eager to work at anything that would provide for his family. He was never a person to look for the government or someone else to give him a handout.
He spent the remaining majority of his working life as a mobile home park manager.
Ernest was a member and deacon of Alliance Bible Chapel in Ashland. His hobbies and interests after talking to others about the Lord Jesus Christ and his love for us were designing and making things from items found in nature, always looking to make an item of beauty using the gifts and talents of working with his hands given to him by his Heavenly Father.
He was preceded in death by his father Edward Fisher Jelley and his mother Margaret Elizabeth Jelley; sister Terry Jelley.
Ernest is survived by his wife of 57 plus years, Anna Darlene (Cole) Jelley of Ashland; sons Ernest Jelley of Roseburg and William (Bill) Jelley of Roseburg; daughters Jacquiline (Jackie) Hansen of Bend and Karen Stone of American Canyon, Calif: brother Caroll Jelley of Ahmednagar, India; 12 grandchildren; Seven great-grandchildren.
He was a most loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested to be directed to the American Cancer Society.
