Jennie L. Volz

August 13, 1939 ‒ June 15, 2016

Lexington, Ohio

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.

  • With Heartfelt Sympathy to the Volz Family,

    May you rely on the God of all comfort to help you to endure the days ahead.

    ” God is our refuge and strength. ”
    (Psalms 46 : 1 )

  • My sincere condolences to Jennie’s family! I first got to know her when I moved back to Ohio after living in Florida for a few years. I moved to MacIntosh Condos and joined Direction’s Credit Union as my new financial institution. She waited on me and we found out that we were neighbor’s. After her fall, I visited her and we were becoming friends when she realized she was not getting stronger, and ultimately decided to retire and move to Idaho. She was a sweet lady, I enjoyed our visits and her lovely home. I wish I had gotten to tell her goodbye. When I went to visit the last time, her daughter-in-law was there (I believe her name is Kelly) and told me that she was in Riverside and what had happened. I have continued to hold her up in prayer, and now I ask God to bless her family and to to give you all peace and to let you remember only the good memories! God is good all the time!

  • Mr. George ( Bud ) and Janet Briner, would also like to extend their sincere condolences to Jennie’s family. They are also MacIntosh neighbors but do not use the internet.

  • My heartfelt condolences to Jennie’s family. She and Tom were Lexington High School upper classmates, whom I greatly admired and respected.
    After years of separation, she and I had gotten reacquainted at the Lexington Alumni committee meetings and banquets.
    I am so saddened to hear of her passing and want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you each, at this most difficult time.

  • My prayers are with Jennie’s family, I only knew her for a short time. She was so loving and warm. I enjoyed our talks and visiting with her and her little white dog.

  • We were so saddened to hear of Jennie’s passing. She was a valued volunteer with us at the Renaissance Theatre, and she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts, condolences and prayers to her family.

  • Sincere and heartfelt condolences to Jennie’s family and Lexington friends. We were friends in junior high school and at North High School in Columbus until her family moved. Several of her friends here tried to keep in touch but it wasn’t always easy. We tried to get together here in Columbus every summer and that get-together is coming up next week. Jennie will truly be missed and we all so wish we could have visited with her – just one more time. –

  • My deepest sympathy to Jennie’s family. We were friends at Crestview Jr. high and Columbus North High School until she moved from the area. We just renewed our friendship in the past few years. Always enjoyed getting together at our luncheons in Columbus. We had so much to talk about and lots of laughter! We will miss her immensely. Rest in peace Jennie.
