Sarah Jane Mallinson passed away on May 22, 2010. Per her request, no services were performed. She and her husband John said "We have done everything together since we were married so it seems proper to do our services together as well. Please do nothing until we both have gone, then do a private family gathering for both of us. After that, a celebration."

John William Mallinson Jr. passed on Jan. 2 this year. The family would like to invite the friends of John and Jane to a celebration of their lives on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 2-5 p.m. at the Mallinson Vineyard and Hall, 3029 N. River Blvd, Sugar Creek, Mo.

Everyone that knew John and Jane knows that a few words cannot begin to encapsulate their accomplishments. The family invites their friends to bring stories or pictures to share. As their wish, wine, cheese and sandwiches will be shared. This is to be a celebration of their lives.
