James "Jimmey" PrislovskyStuttgart, AR, 1935 - 2010
James "Jimmey" Prislovsky Sr, age 75, of Stuttgart was called to be with his Lord on May 31, 2010. He was born to Joseph and Josie Prislovsky in Slovak on February 13, 1935. James is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Josie, as well as his brothers Joe Jr., J.D. and Harry Prislovsky. James married the love of his life, Floy Fore, on December 28, 1957. They were always together opening their home and hearts to others. Their greatest joy was to serving their church and community. While living his life for God, he served at St. John's Lutheran Church as an Elder, president of the Cemetery Board, and many other positions in God's house throughout the many years. James will be greatly missed by his church family, earthly family and extended family and friends including Fairmount Ruritian (helping prepare many meals for the organizations and businesses of the community), Monday night card club, buddies in the Gin Tournament (James started over 40 years ago in the basement of his home), his morning coffee buddies and many others. James will be missed accompanying his wife Floy on the many trips to Branson, cruises, Lutheran Laymen League (LLL) Conventions, RSVP trips and family trips. Lots of great times! James graduated from Hazen High in 1953 and still enjoyed many good times with his classmates and friends over the years. James was full of love and devotion to our Lord and started and ended every day with the reading of the scriptures followed by devotionals. Even during his last days, these daily rituals were still carried out by his family. James spent many of his days on the family farm all the while teaching his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids the joys of farming and the importance of family and God to provide for others. Survivors of James include his wife, Floy Mae Prislovsky; his daughters, Barbara Cook (Rickie) of Stuttgart and Janie Derden (Kevin) of Little Rock; his son, James Louis Prislovsky Jr. (Lesa) of Carlisle; grandchildren, Aaron Meins (Jennifer), Jason Cook, Byron Cook (Mindy), all of Stuttgart, Preston and Taylor Prislovsky of Carlisle and Madison Derden of Little Rock; great-grandchildren, Evan Meins and Hannah Cook of Stuttgart and a great-grandson coming very soon; one sister, Betty Lou Prislovsky Morris of Maumelle; many other loving nieces and nephews; and a special sister-in-law, Carolyn Jones, who was faithfully by her sister Floy's side through these last few hard weeks. The family would like to express our appreciation to Pastor Toops, Pastor Walters, Pastor Jilg, Elders, special friends and family that all have been a constant comfort during this difficult time. A special thanks to Dr. Robert Henry and Dr. Laura Otter for their concern for the family and for James. We will be forever grateful and God bless all of you. Services will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church in Stuttgart, Fifth and College Street., on Thursday, June 3, 2010, at 2 p.m. Visitation will be held at Turpin Funeral Home in Stuttgart on Wednesday, June 2, from 6-8 p.m. The family requests that all memorials be made to St. John's Lutheran Church Education Building of Stuttgart. Daddy, go to prepare a place for us.
