Raynes Funeral Home
Macil A. Jividen
(November 15, 1921 - February 13, 2012)
Macil A. Jividen, 90, of Eleanor completed her earthly journey and went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, February 13, 2012 surrounded by her family who cherished and loved her dearly. She was a faithful member of Shiloah Community Church, Red House, and before her illness enjoyed attending Hometown Senior Citizens. Her greatest joy in life other than the Lord was her family. She enjoyed having family gatherings at her home and cooking Sunday dinners for all to enjoy. Her two most enjoyable hobbies were gardening in the summer and quilting through the winter, and generously passing them down for family to enjoy.
Born November 15, 1921 in Buffalo, she was the daughter of the late Earl and Florence (Johnson) Whittington. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Bracil Jividen; sons, Delmar “Lloyd” and Larry Jividen; daughter-in-law, Helen Jividen; grandsons, Travis “T.J.” and Robert “Bob” Jividen; sisters, Vivian Allinder, Audrey Parsons, Bonnie Phillips, Juanita Armbrust, and Ada Cain; brothers, Jerry and Arliss Whittington.
Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Delbert Jividen of Red House, Belford (Juanita) Jividen of Buffalo, David (Karen) Jividen of Fraziers Bottom, Jerry (Luanne) Jividen of Poca, Gary (Nancy) Jividen of Eleanor; her daughter, Pam (Shawn) Swett of Eleanor; sister, Reba Phillips of Nitro; brother, Bob Whittington of Mesa, Arizona; 13 grandchildren, Connie, Mike, Carrie, Leah, Kim, Shane, Chris, Amy, Merideth, Shannon, Shanda, Angie, and Brittany; 19 great-grandchildren, Nick, Wesley, Lucas, Justin, Cassie, Andrea, Dillon, Katelyn, Lindsey, K.C., Christie, C.J., Lexi, Davin, Kylar, Chandler, Chase, Mi Kayley, and Connor; 3 great-great-grandchildren, Makenzie, Colton, and Matthew. In loving memory of our precious loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. We were very blessed to have had her for 90 memory-filled years, but now she has gone to be with her Lord and Savior in Heaven to suffer no longer on this earth. Macil will be greatly missed by family and friends. She touched the lives of many people, and memories of her will last forever. We have gained another star in the sky and a guardian angel in Heaven.
The family would like to thank Charlotte and her staff at My Fair Lady Personal Care Home, and the hospice nurses, especially Tammy, for the loving care given to our mother.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to HospiceCare, 1606 Kanawha Blvd. W., Charleston, WV 25387-2536.

Burial will follow in Buffalo Memorial Park, Buffalo. The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Friday, February 17, 2012 at Raynes Funeral Home Buffalo.
