Jack Allen Jobe

Posted on December 23, 2021


Oblong, Oct. 31, 1954 - Ill. — Dec. 14, 2021Jack Allen Jobe, 67, of Oblong, IL passed away on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at 11:56 A.M. at the CILA Home in Oblong, IL, under Hospice care.

He was born in Oblong, IL on October 31, 1954 and was the son of Lawrence and Helen (Williams) Jobe who preceded him in death.

Jack lived at the CILA's in Oblong for 22 years. When Jack could talk, he did not know a stranger. He would always greet everyone he met with kind words and a big smile although; he would rename you a different name. Even later, when his health deteriorated and he lost his ability to speak and walk, he had a way to make everyone understand what he wanted or was thinking. He used his facial expressions and hands to make his gestures known. Jack was a huge Wizard of Oz fan and could recite all the words and songs to the movie. Deeply loved by all that knew Jack because of his friendly ways. There is no doubt, Jack ran across the yellow brick road! He touched so many people's lives and will be greatly missed.

Jack is survived by a brother and sister-in-law James M. (Jim) and Cheryl D. Jobe of Sarasota, FL; a sister Janet Schilowsky, Newton, IL; nephews Cory Jobe and his husband John Sinouansai of Richmond Heights, MO, Chris and Kara Jobe of Robinson, IL and Brian Bennett of Ohio; niece Abbey Schilowsky, Newton, IL; great niece Kyndal Jobe of Robinson, IL and great nephew Landon Keller of Newton, IL along with several cousins and his CILA Family.

There will be a Celebration of Jack's Life at the Pulliam Funeral Home in Oblong, IL at Noon on December 29, 2021. Burial will follow at the Oblong Cemetery. Visitation will be from 11:00 A.M. until time of service.
