Jennie L. Volz
August 13, 1939 ‒ June 15, 2016
LEXINGTON: Jennie L. Volz, 76, of Lexington, passed away Wednesday June 15, 2016 in Riverside Methodist Hospital.
The daughter of Raymond and Hazel (Severns) Flick, Jennie was born August 13, 1939 in Columbus. As a teenager she moved from Columbus to Mansfield. While she was head cheerleader for Lexington High School, she first met Thomas Volz who was a starter on the varsity basketball team and shortly after graduating high school, the two were married on December 27, 1958.
Jennie and Tom moved to Worthington where they raised their children. Jennie loved vacationing with family, driving out west, specifically Yellowstone National Park, enjoying the wildlife, clean air and the peace. One of her many passions was the love of music. She was a gifted pianist and was quite accomplished during her younger years. Jennie and Tom also resided in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they graciously supported the semiprofessional baseball team the Salt Lake City Trappers by housing three players on the roster and ultimately winning 29 games in a row.
Jennie was involved in organizing her high school Alumni reunions. She enjoyed working as an usher for the Renaissance Theater in Mansfield, and driving through Amish Country collecting antiques. Antique Santa Clauses were her passion; anyone stepping into any one of her homes would see Christmas was her favorite holiday. Known as one of the best interior decorators by her friends and family, Jennie had a talent for taking the old and making it “homey”.
While in Lexington, Jennie worked as a teller at Directions Credit Union, a career she loved! Always with a smile and hello, Jennie was loved by all of her “regulars” and will be missed.
Along with her parents (Raymond and Hazel Flick), she was preceded in death by her husband Thomas E. Volz. She is survived by her children Jeffrey (Ami) Volz of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Gregory (Kelly) Volz of Bethesda, Maryland, and Paula Volz of Long Beach, Mississippi; grandchildren Colter and Cameron Volz, Caroline, Sam, Will, and Greer Volz; great-granddaughter Sophie Volz; sister Paula (Ray) Dymond of St Mary’s Georgia, in-laws Pearl Volz, Wes (Sandy) Volz, and George (Laura) Volz. The Volz children would like to express their gratitude to her close friends and local family members for their steadfast support and love which they so selflessly extended towards Jennie during her latter years of living in Lexington, Ohio.
The Volz family has chosen the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home for compassionate cremation services.
