Virginia Lee “Jenny” Eisenhouer, 75, of Cabool, Missouri, recently moved to Marshall, Missouri, and passed away at her home on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at 2:35 p.m. surrounded by her family after her struggle with brain cancer for the past month.

Virginia Eisenhouer, daughter of late Leland Doyle Rust and Ruby Alexander Rust, was born on October 27, 1943, at her maternal grandparents’ farm north of Cabool on the “old Rust place.”

She attended Cabool School until her family moved to Paso Robles, California, in 1950. After a couple of years they moved to Iowa for a short period of time before moving back to Cabool.

On May 15, 1964, she married Robert Eisenhouer in her parents’ living room in Cabool. Bob and Jenny had one son, Robbie Eisenhouer of Cabool. They lived in Cabool while Bob worked for the Missouri Highway Patrol until retiring after 37 years while Jenny was a housewife who cared for her son and grandchildren. She was an avid reader, writer, and enjoyed cooking and cross-stitch. She wrote a column for Cabool Enterprise called “Cornerstone Chapel” which would tell her and Bob’s adventures including Sunday’s service and message. She attended Emmanuel Baptist Church of Mountain Grove, Missouri.

Jenny was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She will be greatly missed by those of the lives she touched.

She is survived by her husband, Robert Eisenhouer of Marshall; mother, Ruby Rust of Mountain Grove; brother, Mark Rust of Kansas City, Missouri; son, Robbie Eisenhouer of Cabool; five grandchildren, Sasha Sullivan of Marshall, Sharyl Lewis of Nevada, Missouri, Brennan Sapp of Norwood, Missouri, Keasha Sapp of Mountain Grove and Josh Eisenhouer of Licking, Missouri; and four great-grandchildren, Taylor Sullivan, Hayden McClellan, Isaac Lewis and Ryleigh Lewis. Jenny will be remembered by her nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and dear friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Leland Doyle Rust, and brother, Norman Rust.
