In Memory of

Dee L. Enderlin

October 2, 1968 - December 19, 2019
From: Cherokee, IA
Dee (Jones) Enderlin went to be with the Lord on December 19, 2019. She was a loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother to her family. She passed away as a result of complications from MS—a disease she battled most of her adult life.

Dee loved her Savior God intimately, and longed for those she loved to know Him as intimately as she did. Despite her debilitating condition, she greeted everyone with a smile, and made many special memories for those who knew her.

In death, Dee now rejoins her father, Ken Jones.

She is survived by her husband, David, and their two sons, Daniel and his wife Jordan, and daughter Khaleesi of Clarinda, IA, and Matthew and his wife Tabitha and daughter Harper of Cherokee; her mother, Nancy Jones of Cherokee; five sisters: Debra (Jonathan) Zupke of Larrabee, IA, Donna (John) Wright) of St. Cloud, MN, Denise (Ken) McMillen of Early, IA, Dawn (David) Hancock of Humboldt, IA, and Delores (Preston) Tanaka of Cassville, WI; many special aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

It is with great joy that our family recognizes that Dee is free from this earth’s restraints upon her body. We believe that she has received full healing now, and is dancing in heaven. Although there is such deep sorrow for our loss, we feel great joy knowing she has been made whole through our Lord Jesus Christ!


A Celebration of Life service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 22nd at Oakdale Evangelical Free Church in rural Meriden. The church is located at 1207 450th St., Meriden, IA, at the corner of C16 and L51. A time of sharing and fellowship with the family will follow the service until 5:00 p.m.

Memorials in Dee's memory can be directed to the family at 423 Valleyview Dr., Cherokee, IA, 51012, or through David's Venmo account.

Dee's service will be broadcast via Oakdale Church Live-Stream. Please go to watch service. 
Pastor Tim Jones (friend of the family) and David Hancock (brother-in-law)
Music will be provided by Chris Hancock and Josh Hancock (nephews)
The Jones family
When the weather allows, the family plans to plant a tree memorial through The Living Urn to honor Dee's life.

“Our deepest sympathy to the Jones and Enderlin families on the loss of Dee. We recently lost our daughter Kim Feldhacker Dalke in August to leukemia and pnuemonia in Phoenix, Arizona, we share your sorrow. Dee and Kim were classmates, graduated together, were neighbors, and rode the school bus together, now they are in Heaven together. May the peace of the Lord that passes all understanding be with you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you take this difficult journey of missing Dee.
