Jessica Thornell

Jessica Lavon Thornell, 15, of Antwerp, passed away Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at Community Memorial Hospital, Hicksville.

Jessica was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana on August 31, 2006, a daughter of Amy Jane (Miller) and Gary Thornell.

She loved all her teammates like they were family. She also was elected to student council and was a NJHS member. Jessica loved being with her friends, going to the lake with her family, and riding her 4-wheeler. She loved Ohio State Sports so much that she named her Saint Bernard Brutus!

Jessica will be sadly missed by her parents, Gary & Amy, brother, Eric, grandparents, Larry & Cathy Thornell and Michael & Alice Miller, and all her family and friends.

Amy & Gary, Alice & Mike, I wish there was something that I could say to take your pain away. Having lost our oldest son and then my dear husband, I know that there is nothing to say that makes it better. You just keep putting one foot in front of the other and pray a lot. You'll look back and see where the Lord has carried you when you knew you couldn't go one more inch. Lean on each other and know that I'm praying for you every day..
God bless and keep you all. Jessica was a real cutie, and will most assuredly be missed.

Words are not sufficient at times such as this. I pray that the Lord will give you the peace that passeth all understanding, as only He can do. Love to all of you.
