Jane Enderle - Known for her enthusiasm, vitality, and tonicity, Jane Enderle devoted her life to her family, her church and her community.  It is a pleasure to find one who has given so freely and worked so tirelessly to make their surroundings a better place for all.

Born Elizabeth Jane Kistler on October 11, 1916, at her grandparents home, the Price Place, south of Keytesville. She was the middle child and the only daughter of Herbert and Lizzie Meyer Kistler.  Her parents and brother, Junior, preceded her in death.  One brother, Edgar, survives.  She was christened at Asbury Church and attended 1st grade at Hill School.  When she was six the family moved to Dalton where she attended Dalton schools and the Dalton Immanuel Methodist Church.  Because Dalton High School only offered a three year program and she wanted to attend college, she chose to move to Clifton Hill with her grandparents, John and Stena Meyer and graduated from Clifton Hill High School.  She attended Kirksville State Teachers College for a time and then began teaching at Hill School south of Keytesville where she met Frank William Enderle - who was a substitute mail carrier on the route.  They married on May 2, 1937 in Excelsior Springs, MO.  Keytesville was their home until January 1, 1942, when they moved to Dalton, where they continued to make their home until the summer of 2001.  Frank and Jane are the parents of two children, Janice, born July 16, 1942 and Edward, born June 3, 1945.

When her children were in school, she was an avid supporter.  She served as chauffer, sponsor, chaperone, advisor and room mother.  She served as President of the Keytesville Band Boosters, and is a charter member of the Keytesville PTA, and was a very active leader for many years of the Dalton 4H club.  She was so proud of the fact that she was the first woman to serve as president of the Keytesville Chamber of commerce. She worked diligently to get a doctor/medical clinic in Keytesville and to get the Senior Housing established.  A list of Jane's accomplishments, honors, awards, community endeavors, and service to her fellowman is endless.  The boards she has served on, the Committees she has headed, the fundraisers, the celebrations would fill more pages than are allowed.  When asked about the highlights of her life, two were at the top of the list - being selected one of the top 10 Missouri Mothers in 1977 and being asked to act as Grand Marshall for the Sterling Price Day Parade in 1996.  Jane will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

In the early afternoon on Sunday, November 7, at the age of 88, Jane quietly slipped away - leaving her husband of 67 years, Frank; her daughter Janice Pearman of Rockwall, Texas; her son Edward and daughter-in-law Esther Enderle of Brunswick, MO; six grandchildren: Cherri Owens of Rockwall, Texas; Jeff Pearman of Highland Village, Texas: Rob Pearman of Rockwall Texas; Amy Enderle of Columbia, MO; Carla Enderle of Columbia, MO; and Terry Enderle of Dalton, MO; five great grandchildren, Drew Foutz, Alex Pearman, Avery Zoe, and Tycho Enderle-Wagner, and a host of nieces, nephews and other family members.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, November 10, 2004 at 2:00 p.m. at Summerville Funeral Home with visitation from 1:00 till service time.  Burial in Dalton Cemetery.  Memorials to Dalton Immanuel United Methodist church or Dalton Cemetery.
