January 5, 1931 — April 13, 2018

Goodland, KS

Lifelong Sherman County and Wallace County farmer Jesse Lee Craft, 87, passed away on Friday, April 13, 2018 at his home in Goodland, Kansas.

He was born on January 5, 1931 in rural Sherman County, to Everett and Elva (Dillinger) Craft.  He married Doris Sieck on August 8, 1948 in Goodland.  They started farming just two miles from where they both grew up.  They were blessed with three daughters, Shirley, Karen and Marsha.

Jesse loved farming, but as he always said, “we had our ups and downs”.  He served his community and was involved and served on many different state and local boards.  He especially liked anything that involved young ones, 4-H, sports, etc.

Preceding him in death were his parents, his brother Darrell Craft and his wife Connie, and an infant great grandchild Hadley Grace Schilling.

He is survived by his wife of 69 years Doris, of the home in Goodland, his three daughters Shirley (Ron) Busse of Edson, Kansas, Karen (Les) Lampe of Shawnee, Kansas and Marsha (Ron) Schilling of Edson, KS; eight grandchildren, Justin (Amity) Ihrig, John (Tisha) Ihrig, Jessica (Tom) Nittler, Anne (Nate) Rahmeier, Paul Lampe, Cash (Amanda) Schilling, Chance (Emily) Schilling and Clay (Kaycie) Schilling, seventeen great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
