Paula Jean Jumps

May 26, 1953 — April 20, 2023


Paula Jean Jumps born May 26, 1953 to Cecil and Wanda Stone of Herrin, Illinois.  She resided here for most of her life and then graduated at Herrin High School in 1972.  She worked at General Dynamics as an assembly line worker and in her final years there she became a janitor.  Paula was truly liked by so many because of her humorous yet sarcastic personality. She loved to make people laugh and build people up with her uplifting and positive feedback. She loved with her whole heart and never nothing less. She was an incredibly loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and a friend to many.

One of the many things she wanted in life was to see that her daughters lived their best life and were steered down the correct path in their lives. She enjoyed spending time and spoiling her granddaughters and great granddaughters. As well as spending hours and hours a day online chatting with her "Glass Family & Friends."  Paula will always and forever be in our hearts until the day we see each other again. She is loved and missed by many.

Paula married Richard Jumps on March 10, 2010.   Also surviving is her former husband Steven Switzer and their two children Devin Switzer and Jennifer Switzer; granddaughters, Alyecia Kirsch and Adrianna Rosenow of Herrin, Illinois; great granddaughter, Milah Williams of Herrin Illinois; brothers, Terry (Karen) Stone of Pittsburg, Illinois, Jim (Debbie) Stone of Herrin, Illinois, John (Shelley) Stone of Herrin, Illinois and Chris (Melissa) Crombar of Bloomington, Indiana; sisters, Candy (Greg) Wanstreet of Carterville, Illinois, Cassie (John) Shreve of Keller, Texas and Charolette (Bill) Carlson of Rochester, Michigan.
