Jeanene Faye Mason

February 8, 1941 — August 21, 2023

Seibert, Colorado


Jeanene Faye Kneedler was born on February 8, 1941 in Goodland Kansas, the second of three children born to Ralph and Mildred (Fairbanks) Kneedler.

She grew up in the Burlington area, graduating with the class of 1959.  Shortly after graduation she met and married Dale Mason who was working for Dean Sailer as a barber.

This union was blessed with three children, Cindy Jean, Jo Ann and Jay Dee. Jeanene spent her life spelling her name for everyone, so she wanted her children to have simple names that everyone could spell.

Dale and Jeanene lived in various places in Eastern Colorado, settling in their current home in Seibert Colorado after Dale retired from C-DOT in 2002.  Jeanene loved to be a homemaker.  She loved to can, taking various prizes at the Kit Carson County Fair, which she was very proud of.

The greatest joy of her life was when she became a grandma to 9 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

She was diagnosed with cancer in June and passed away peacefully surrounded by her family in Grand Junction on August 21, 2023.

Jeanene was proceeded in death by her parents, Ralph and Mildred Kneedler; In-laws, Cliff and Averil Mason; Sister Marlene Hookum, brother Tom Kneedler, and twin great granddaughters, Kaitlin and Emily Brophy.

She is survived by her husband of 64 years Dale Mason, daughters Cindy (Mike) Taylor, Jo (Ed) Benson, and Jay (Shawna) Mason along with her grandchildren and great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
