Obituary: Barbara (Buppy) Lengyel - Class of 1969

PURVIS, MISSISSIPPI/VERONA, WISCONSIN - With sadness and heavy hearts, we mourn the loss of our Beloved Barbara (Buppy) Jones, age 61, who passed away unexpectedly on June 9, 2011, in Purvis, Miss.

She was born on Nov. 26, 1949, in Madison. She moved to Purvis, Miss., where she married Elgin Jones. Buppy was one "Heck" of a lady! Rarely would you see her sitting down (except for eating). She had a mouth like a "drunken sailor," that made us all laugh! If you needed help (or anything) she was the first one there! Buppy was one of the last graduates of Central High School in 1969. In 2005 she survived Hurricane Katrina!! She loved to fish on the Wisconsin River, attend Saturday night auctions, and take care of her pecan trees.

Buppy leaves behind her husband, Elgin Jones; sons, John "Johnny" (Terri) Lengyel and Jestin (Renee) Becker Lengyel; stepson, John; granddaughter, Jailin; and grandson, John Jr. and another grandchild on the way; brothers, Charles "Punky" Lengyel and Donny (Mildred) Lengyel; sisters, LaVonne "Suzy" (Jerry) Dunn, Margaret "Mikki" (Jim) Grant, MaryAnn "Modie" Schulenberg, Tinki Jensen, Linda "Linti" Wilson (Rod), Betty "Petey" Lengyel; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Laura Lengyel; brother, Jerry Gene Lengyel; nephew, Jerry Lengyel "Little Jerry"; and brothers-in-law, Mike "Mickey" Schulenberg and Thomas Jensen.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
