Emma Staton

Dow | Monday, December 7 2020 |

Emma Pearl (Haun) Staton, 84, passed away at 7:55 a.m., Monday, December 7, 2020 at her home.

She was born on October 13, 1936 in Fieldon to the late Lawrence and Hazel (Calamm) Haun and was a lifelong resident of Jersey County.

She married Harold Staton on October 22, 1966 in Jerseyville and they treasured the moments shared with one another and their family throughout their 54 years of marriage.

Emma worked various jobs throughout her life, but found the greatest joys coming from her work caring for children in after school programs and serving as a Matron at Illini Middle School in Jerseyville.

Emma was selfless in every aspect of the word, always putting the needs of others before her own. Her family was the center of her world and there was nothing that brought her more joy than caring for them all.

Surviving are her husband, Harold Staton of Grafton; a son, Michael Mielke of Bethalto; a daughter, Marian Shelton of Jacksonville, Florida; eight grandchildren, Christopher Shelton, Andreanna Dwiggins, Patrick Shelton, Alexander Brown, Kiandra Brown, Joey Huntsman, Michael Wayne Mielke and Bobby Mielke; eleven great grandchildren; a brother, Ross Breitweiser of Jerseyville and a sister, Joyce Taylor of Sayre, Oklahoma.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved son, Harold Wayne Staton on August 18, 1985, and a sister, Hazel Jean Nolle.

Per her wishes, cremation rights will be accorded and no services are planned at this time.

Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville has been entrusted with arrangements, and memories may be shared with Emma's family by visiting
