Jessica Leigh James

Sudden infant death syndrome took the life of Jessica James, daughter of David and Kalene James of Lusk, Monday morning June 10, 1985.

A memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. Thursday June 13, at Peet Mortuary Chapel. Pastor Don Anders of Rockerville, S.D. will preside.

Jessica Leigh James was born Easter Sunday, April 7, 1985, at Community Hospital in Torrington. Her short life was spent with her parents at their Lusk home.

"Being such a loveable and sweet baby, the Lord evidently wanted her in his Kingdom ... to take her so young," her parents said. "She will be so greatly missed by us and her grandparents."

Following the Thursday afternoon memorial service, a graveside service will be conducted at Lusk Cemetery.

The Anders family will provide music for the memorial service. Pallbearers are Ron Shoults, Dale Hytrek, Arlo Bowen, Bob Eikenberry, Dale Greenough and Jake Reed.

Little Jessica is survived by her parents; grandparents, Lee and Mary James and Phil and Barbara Joss, all of Lusk; great grandparents, Art and Peg Joss of Douglas and Gertie and Don Harkin of Crawford, Neb.; aunts, uncles and cousins.
