Obituary – Jonathan Craig Kingery

Jonathan Craig Kingery, age 57, of Humeston, Iowa, the son of Caral Rex and Beatrice Minnetta Sandford Kingery, was born November 24, 1961, in Riverhead, New York. He went home to be with our Savior on Friday, January 18, 2019.

Jonathan grew up and attended school mostly in Indiana. He moved to Des Moines, Iowa in 1988. He and his future wife, Angela Carol Post, were working at the same place when they met. They were married on April 19, 1990, in Des Moines. The couple and Angela’s two-year old daughter stayed in Des Moines where Jonathan continued working as a mechanic. Jonathan had a son, Allan, and they were blessed with two children of their own, Caitlin and Christopher.

The family moved to Illinois so Jonathan could take seminary classes, then to Indiana where they were caretakers of a Girl Scout campground. They lived in Texas where Jonathan did construction work with his brother before coming back to Iowa to be near Angela’s grandparents. Another Girl Scout campground in Wisconsin needed a caretaker, so they moved there. In 2002, they moved to Chariton, Iowa and in 2007, to Humeston, Iowa where Jonathan did property preservation.

In his free time, Jonathan loved being with his seven grandchildren and was looking forward to the upcoming arrival of number eight. He also enjoyed playing video games, helping anybody that needed it, and doing car bodywork. He was a man of faith and was a member of the Cornerstone Community Church in Chariton.

Preceding him in death were his parents; and his oldest brother, Caral Rex Kingery. Survivors include his wife, Angela Kingery of Humeston, Iowa; children, Allan Edgerton of Des Moines, Iowa, April and Doug Matheny of Baxter, Iowa, Chris Kingery of Humeston, and Caitlin and Scott Brown of Dearing, Georgia; seven grandchildren, Scarlett, Declan, Isaac, Samantha, Lyla, Levi, Braden, and one more expected soon; sister-in-law, Tracey Kingery in Des Moines; siblings, Doug and Jolene Kingery of Des Moines, Myron and Debra Kingery of Ohio, Minnetta and Bruce Crowe and James Thomas and Christine Kingery, all of Texas, and Wilbur and Robin Kingery of East Troy, Wisconsin; Angela’s parents, Robert and Dusty Post of Chariton and her siblings, Aletha and Kevin Gabbert of Johnston, Iowa, Bob Post of Des Moines, and Richard Post of Chariton; nieces and nephews; and other relatives and many friends.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at the Cornerstone Community Church at 11 a.m. Thursday, January 24, 2019. Arrangements were through the Slade – O’Donnell Funeral Home in Leon, Iowa.
