JoNell Mikulenka, 88, of Pearland passed away Monday, March 9, 2020. She is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Josephine Sneigr; her loving husband of 63 years, Eldrett Mikulenka; son, Douglas Charles Mikulenka; She is survived by her daughter, Susan Elizabeth Goolsby and husband, Mark; daughter-in-law, Alice Mikulenka Hardy and husband, Carl; sister, Tommie Jean Vial ; grandchildren, Jason Mikulenka and wife Marnie, Melanie Mikulenka and fiancé Matthew, Melissa DelBello and husband Chad, Chris Goolsby, Cody Goolsby and wife Barbara, and Autumn Mikulenka; great-grandchildren, Emily Robertson, Ashlynn Mikulenka, Mason DelBello, Aiden Goolsby, and Ally DelBello; and a host of other family and dear friends. JoNell, was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother that cherished spending time with her family. She was affectionately known as “Gum-Gum” because she always had gum for the kids. JoNell loved sharing her favorite recipes with her family and made “hands-down” the best angel food cake, the yummiest milkshakes and Thanksgiving dressing that would leave you wanting more. Her love of music and singing was best personified by the joy she gained from listening to her sister play the piano and then tormenting her with reminders that Tommie Jean needed to practice a little more. She believed strongly in looking your best and was always the best high heel dressed shopper in Walmart. JoNell will forever be remembered for always having cokes in the garage fridge, her love of mowing the grass on her riding lawnmower, her affinity for Hershey kisses and for taking the kids to McDonald’s after school. JoNell will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Services for JoNell will be held Friday, March 13, 2020 at Clayton Funeral Home, 5530 W. Broadway, Pearland, Texas 77581.
