Joe and Vicki Jadlot are proud to call Sheldon, Missouri home. They married in 1981 and celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary this past May. They lived in Franklin, Indiana where their oldest daughter, LeeAnn, was born and Joe worked for a general contractor. They moved back to Sheldon for a brief time then moved to Garden City, KS where Joe was employed by Iowa Beef Processors and their youngest daughter, Cassie, was born. They also lived in Beaver, Oklahoma before making their final move to Sheldon in April 1986. They knew they wanted their girls to be raised in Sheldon and attend Sheldon School where Joe and Vicki both attended and where they met. Vicki has worked for the school system for 27 years. LeeAnn Cox is a cosmetologist and works with her husband, Brian, on the family farm. Cassie Boultinghouse is a dental hygienist and is married to Shawn. Both LeeAnn and Cassie have been royalty winners at the picnic and Cassie has been treasure for the last four years.
Joe and Vicki have always been ones to count their blessings and will tell you their most joyous blessing are their four grandsons, Wyatt (13) ,Eli (9), Grady (8) and Griffin (7). They have really enjoyed being grandparents of all boys and watching their different sporting events are some of their favorite activities.
Vicki was raised in a family of four. Her late brother, Gary Raynor, lived and went to school in Sheldon starting his 7th grade year but Vicki grew up here and now she and Joe live in the house where she was raised by her parents, Clinton and Virginia Raynor. Joe grew up in a much bigger family of four boys and two girls by his parents, Ann Jadlot and the late Bob Jadlot.
Vicki’s hobbies include quilting and quilting and Joe really enjoys fishing and playing cards. They love to travel to Bennett Spring State Park and spending time with family while fishing.
Joe and Vicki’s favorite part of the picnic would be visiting with people of their generation and watching the younger generation have fun.
Joe states his favorite memory of the picnic would be the multiple times he was able to ride his tall clown bike for the children in the parade. Vicki’s fondest memory is her very first ferris wheel ride, with her neighbor, as a child.
Vicki attends the Sheldon Methodist Church. In previous and current years Joe and Vicki have been involved in many community and school organizations. Joe worked for the Sheldon Seed Company for 16 years, the City of Sheldon for 10 years and Sheldon School for 10 years.
They both feel it’s an honor to be asked to be this year’s Sheldon Picnic Grand Marshal.
