Obituary For Charles Marion Berry

Charles Marion Berry, 98, of Sedalia, MO, passed away Sunday, October 23, 2022, at Fair View Nursing Home in Sedalia. He was born on October 13, 1924, in Walnut Ridge, AR, the son of Charley Berry and Alma (Snyder) Berry, who preceded him in death.

On September 5, 1946, in Lebanon, MO, he was united in marriage to Vivian Clara Jane Jones, who preceded him in death on July 25, 2018.

Charles worked for Clearfield Cheese Company (Schreiber Foods Inc.) in Clinton, MO, as an over-the-road truck driver from 1961 until his retirement in 1987. During his career as a truck driver, he had over 6 million accident-free miles. He was an outstanding active member of the Pentecostal Church of God at 24th & Ohio and, most recently, at Crossroads Church of God. Charles and Vivian enjoyed camping, fishing, playing Domino's, and going on family vacations to Colorado. Charles especially loved working in his yard so much that he could be found weed-eating his ditch while riding his Jazzy motorized scooter.

Survivors include two children, Ronald M. Berry (Sue) and Maxine L. Wheeler (Pete), all of Sedalia; three grandchildren, Robin Wheeler (Brian Barber), Wendy Berry (Amelia), Travis Berry (Kellie); four great-grandchildren, Clara Jane Barber, Ash Strand, Oslo Berry, and Ellis Berry; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and parents, Charles was preceded in death by two brothers, George and James Berry; three sisters, Ida Jennings, Rosalie Burgess, and Florence Massey; and two siblings in infancy.

A graveside service and burial will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, October 27, 2022, at Crown Hill Cemetery with Pastor Jerry Reed officiating.

The family will receive friends from 12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Rea Funeral Chapel prior to going to the cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Daniel Breeden, Gene Seifner, Neil Fowler, Brian Barber, Tony Steele, and James Woodall.

Memorial contributions may be made to Crossroads Hospice in the care of Rea Funeral Chapel.
