Jolene Bray Obituary

Jolene Agnes Bray (83) followed God’s plan and was called home to Him on March 9, 2024.  She was born on July 30, 1940, in Highland, IL to the late Ralph and Norma (nee Bellm) Seger. She raised her four children in Granite City, IL before moving to Jacksonville, FL in 1981. Jolene married her loving husband Francis (Frank) Bray on April 7, 1990.  


She worked as an Executive Secretary for Brunswick Corporation in Illinois until she moved to Florida, where she worked for many years in the gift shop at Baptist Hospital.  Her favorite pastimes included playing cards and bingo.  A lifelong fan of all sports from NASCAR to softball, you could often find Jolene rooting for the St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Cardinals, or Jacksonville Jaguars, though the thrill of any playoff game could never compete with the joy and fulfillment she felt from being a wife, mother, grandma, and Gigi.

Jolene will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by her husband, Frank; daughters, Barbara Miller (Lee Tucker), Patrice (Mark) Singletary, Jacklyn Ray, and Dawn (Jim) Myers; daughter-in-law, Lori Wood (Steve Pruitt); grandchildren, Renee Zink, Bobby Zink, Teri Miller, Katelyn (Cody) Powell, Kyle (Jessica) Singletary, Michael (Michelle) Singletary, Matthew (Allison) Singletary, Heather (Jordan) James, Brianna Ray, Caroline Myers, and Marion Myers, and great-grandchildren, Harlee and Anabelle Zink, Athena, Vaeda, Pryce, Charlotte, Ella, and Ruby Singletary, Claire Gilley, and Keegan, Parker, Nora, and Leitha James.

Jolene is preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Jerome and Larry Seger, late husband, Charles H. Wood, and son, Charles K. Wood.

Visitation will be on Friday, March 15, 2024, from 6-8 pm at Cedar Bay Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be held Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 3 pm at Cedar Bay Funeral Home with Reverend Gary Grigg officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. A dinner for friends and family will be held at Garden City Methodist Church 3057 Dunn Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida at 6 pm following the service.
