Jeannine “Toots” Bundy, 90, of Odin, passed peacefully at Centralia Manor, November 29, 2019. “Toots” was a member of the Odin Methodist Church and a lifelong resident of Odin. She was a stay at home mom until her boys were raised. She later worked for, and retired from the State of Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. “Toots” was a sports fan and enjoyed watching her favorite teams, Illini basketball, and St. Louis Cardinals play, and cheer them on to victory from the comfort of her living room. She was a lady that appreciated nature, growing beautiful flower gardens and watching the deer that would visit her backyard. “Toots” had an eye for sparkling jewelry and loved to dress up and wear her favorite pieces on a tranquil night out at “The Muny”. The love she shared with her loved ones will be cherished always.
