Jean had a compassionate heart and an adventurous spirit. She and Karl had a wonderful life and traveled all over the country and beyond in their camper, on cruises and by other means. Those who knew Jean will remember her delicious fresh peach pies, lemon meringue pies and of course "Jean's beans". She was excellent at counted cross stitch and finished many beautiful pieces including her angel pictures. Jean and Karl loved to play cards with friends and host chicken barbecues as well as many Jones reunions at the Jones farm.
The family would like to mention a few "special angels" who provided wonderful and compassionate care to "Eva" at Vestal Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. Thank you to Karissa, Cody, Kayla, Donna, Liz, Sara C, Jaeline, Anna, T and Lorraine. There were others who tried their best during difficult circumstances.
