December 13, 1975 — May 16, 2024

Walker, Missouri

Jeraldine “Dena” Elizabeth Simental, age 48, of Walker, Missouri, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, May 16, 2024. She was born December 13, 1975 in Harrisonville, Missouri. Dena was the daughter of the late Wilber Dene Jewell and Lanora Ann Jones Jewell. Dena grew up in the Southern Baptist Church, having been saved and later baptized.
