Bill Gene Jines

Published 4-29-13

ENID — Funeral for Bill Gene Jines will be 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 30, 2013, at Emmanuel Baptist Church. The Rev. Wade Burleson will officate. A private family committal will follow in Fairview Cemetery, under the direction of Henninger-Hinson Funeral Home.

Bill Gene Jines was born Sept. 9, 1928, near Poplar Bluff, Mo., and lived a full life loving Jesus and his family until his homegoing on Friday, April 26, 2013. He was born the 18th child in his family. He started working at age 16 selling cars and did this primarily for the next 55 years. Along the way, he owned a diner, insurance agency, car lots, was an auctioneer and many other things, as well as being a pastor over a dozen years. The greatest love of his life was Jesus Christ. He was saved at a revival in his early 20s, and this event changed his life. He immediately began preaching and led his wife, two daughters, his mom and dad, his brothers and their wives, and countless number of others to saving faith in Christ. Anyone he met, he took the opportunity to talk to them about the Lord. He pastored three small churches around Poplar Bluff before moving to Bolivar to attend college. He graduated from Southwest Baptist College while pastoring a church in Waubeleau, Mo. He eventually moved to Springfield, Mo., and pastored a church there for years until he began a career as an insurance agent. He was an insurance agent in Springfield, Tulsa and Oklahoma City before getting back into car sales and eventually working as the sales manager at Jensen’s in Fairview for nearly 20 years. Along the way, he continued to teach Sunday school, preach, and serve as an interim pastor. He always continued to share his faith in the Lord with anyone he met, and now he is with his greatest love, Jesus Christ.

He was married to Juanita Williams and had two precious daughters, Linda Jines Masteller and Sherry Jines LaMunyon.

In 1968, he married his wife of nearly 45 years, Marina Groseclose Jines and had two sons, Tim and Tracey Jines.

In life he enjoyed every new kind of gadget or electronics, bicycles, motorcycles, CB radios, computers, or cellphones. He was quick with his wit and had tons of one-liners that kept his family in stitches or caused strange looks on their faces. He loved to have a good time and wanted everyone around him to laugh. He played guitar and sang old country western and gospel songs. He was also a man of integrity, who never compromised on his ideals. He stood up for what was right and didn’t care about what others would say about him. His family loved him and he provided for them whatever they needed or would travel to wherever they were to help.

He has been reunited in Heaven with his parents and his siblings.

He will see again those he left behind: his wife, Marina of Enid; daugthters, Linda Mastellar and husband Rod of Shreveport, La., and Sherry LaMunyon and husband Dana of Enid; sons, Tim Jines and wife Becki of Enid, and Tracey Jines and wife Cynthia of Oklahoma City; 14 precious grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren, of whom he was most proud.

He also had many dear friends who loved and enjoyed him. In his life, and now in his death, he would want everyone know for sure where they will be for eternity. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” Bill would want you to trust Jesus and give your life to Him.
