Tribute to Mrs. Jones from her children:

Mom grew up in the small town of Erwin, Tennessee. She lived there until she was 18 years old. She ended up in Atlanta, Georgia where she met and fell in love with our dad, James. She was a devoted wife and mother. She loved being a mother to her three children, and it showed in everything she did. She was the perfect mom in every sense of the word. She loved to cook for our family and she loved to make homemade treats. She never missed a softball game, baseball game, football game, or swim meet. She proudly wore our team colors and cheered us on without fail.

Mom was also a loving and proud grandmother to her 9 grandchildren for 31 years. Mom liked to sew, made some of her own clothes, and always made homemade Halloween costumes for all of us, including costumes for some of her grandchildren. She also liked to make handmade Christmas and other holiday decorations. For a while, she made and sold Adoption dolls, also known as Cabbage Patch dolls.

One of Mom’s favorite hobbies and possibly her most loved hobby was playing video games. She especially loved XBox, which she played through the last days of her life. With moms failing health, we all took part in taking care of her at home until recently. Our loving father willingly became her primary caregiver in every way for the past few years. His everlasting compassion and loving heart made it possible to keep her at home as long as we could.
