Jessie Mae (Syfert) Landers was born and raised in Herrick, Shelby County, Illinois. She was the daughter of Oliver and Rachel (Rogers) Syfert. Jessie was a Herrick telephone operator, member of the Herrick Christian Church (Sunday school teacher for children ages 3-5 for 45 years), member of both the Order of the Eastern Star and Peace Meals; she married Benjamin "Bennie" Otis Landers February 28, 1928 in Lincoln Park, Wayne County, Michigan; she was the mother of four children: Leah Mae, Betty Ann, Raymond Dean, and Laura "Loraine". On Grandma Jessie's 85th birthday she went for a ride on a motorcycle with her grandson, Eric and on her 90th birthday she went horseback riding with several of her grandchildren. She loved playing cards, she was a great cook, and was always baking a cake for someone. She lived her entire life in Herrick and stayed active and was still driving in her 90s. Although a very tiny lady she was a strong woman. Grandma Jessie is loved and missed by her three daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and many other family members and friends. Waiting to greet her at Heaven's Golden Gate were her husband, Bennie; their son, Raymond; her parents, Oliver and Rachel (Rogers) Syfert; and her three brothers, Elmer, Homer, and Noble Syfert.
