Hazel N. Jobe, 95, of California, MO went to heaven to be with Jesus and her husband Glenn and her many loved ones that were there waiting for her on Monday, April 22, 2013, two days after her 95th birthday. We believe the first thing Jesus will say to her is “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
