Jane Jones

GALVESTON — Jane Jones, 91, Galveston, and formerly of Marion, passed away peacefully in her sleep at 7:26 p.m. Sunday, May 25, 2014, at Marion General Hospital, Marion, after a very brief illness.

Born Feb. 24, 1923, in Hoover, Cass County, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Dessa Ellen Toothman Lunsford.

She was a graduate of Twelve Mile High School.

During World War II, she worked for the Navy Department at the Peru Ordinance Plat from a week before production until its closure.

She married the love of her life, William “Bill” G. Jones Jr., on Jan. 16, 1946, after his return from two years in India. They were married 56 years and seven months upon the date of his death, Aug. 21, 2002.

From the fall of 1946 until the spring of 1949, she worked in the office of More Company, Muncie, as Mr. Jones finished his bachelor’s degree at Ball State University.

She lived in the communities of Hoover, Peru, Muncie, Twelve Mile, Metea, Sweetser, Galveston, Converse and Marion in addition to spending 13 winters in Clearwater, Fla.

She is survived by two sons, Steven Lee Jones and wife Marianne, Galveston, and Kim Allen Jones and wife Debbie, Marion. She was the grandmother of three, Eric (Melissa) Jones, Kokomo, Cory (Karen) Jones, Walton, and Heather Faulk and husband Joe, Noblesville. She was blessed with six great-grandchildren, Kyrstin Jones, Galveston, Emerson and Addison Jones, Walton, and Carson, Camden, and Alyssa Faulk, Noblesville.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Fred Jr. and Hal; one grandchild; and one nephew, Dave Zartman.

Jane was a wonderful cook and, according to her family, no one made better noodles or lemon meringue pie. She was an avid reader, loved gardening, sewing and history. She enjoyed watching tennis, the NBA and the Colts, but above everything else, was her love for her family and friends.

Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Thursday at McClain Funeral Home, U.S. 31 and Ind.16, Denver, with services officiated by Pastor Tom Mansbarger from Grace Community Church, Marion. Burial will follow in Corinth Cemetery, Twelve Mile.

Memorial contributions may be made to Corinth Brethren Church, Twelve Mile or Cancer Services of Grant County, 305 S. Norton Ave., Marion, IN, 46952.
