Jessie was born on December 11, 1925 in Tallapoosa County, AL to the late Calvin Lee Winslett and Bunie Lee Cotton Winslett. She was employed for many years as a printer at Premier Graphics.

This very special lady will be greatly missed by her family and friends but will always be lovingly remembered by all whose lives she touched.
Other than her parents, Jessie is preceded in death by her husband, Victor Keith Argroves, son, Rory Murphy, and brothers, Clifford Winslett and Hoyt Winslett.
