June 15, 1929 — March 12, 2014

Jimona June MacInnes was born June 15, 1929, in Richmond, Calif. She grew up in El Cerrito, Calif., and graduated from El Cerrito High. It was there, in her senior year of high school, that she began dating a young man who had been her friend since kindergarten. On Sept. 12, 1949, Jimona married her high school sweetheart, John William MacInnes, and the two embarked on a lifelong journey together.

After attending San Jose State, the couple settled in Concord, Calif., to raise their family. From there, they moved to Green Valley, where Jimona considered this to be truly home. She enjoyed watching the deer meander into the yard, quail making their daily appearances, looking at the hummingbirds through the kitchen window and listening to the creek flow through their backyard. She was an avid reader and crossword puzzle enthusiast, doing hundreds of each in her lifetime. She also loved the arts, whether it was painting with watercolors or cooking Chinese-inspired meals. When her husband Bill retired, they enjoyed traveling abroad and stateside. If you were to ask Jimona where her favorite spot was it would be Grayeagle, Calif. She found great joy in spending time with family and lifelong friends in such a beautiful setting. Jimona was proud to be a native Californian. She embraced the opportunity to share that her family heritage was from the Yolo and Vaca Valley area, going back seven generations.

Jimona is survived by her husband of 64 years, John (Bill); three children, Jill Scicluna, Jim (Kelley) and Jeff (Tami); grandchildren, Jamie, Heather, Noah, Duncan, Ashley, Cory, Colin and Marisa; and great-grandchildren, Taylor and Landon.

Her parents, James Leroy Hollar and Penelope Cornelia Hollar, preceded her in death.

The family would like to thank the staff at Vacaville Convalescent Rehabilitation Center for their loving care for the past four years while this was her home away from home.

A memorial for the immediate family will be held at a later date.
