Mrs. Jones had a cheerful, gentle spirit, she smiled often and enjoyed being around people. Following the loss of her husband, she enjoyed visiting the local restaurant circuit with her son Jim. She quickly made many friends with the servers and patrons of each establishment. When she became a patient at Hahne Cancer Center, she didn’t leave without wishing others well and was their cheerleader for their perseverance and recovery.
She liked to sing, loved her children and grandchildren and her faithful four-footed companion, Buddy.
