E. JEAN JONES
E. Jean Jones, 82, a resident of the Rouse Warren Co. Home, and formerly of Youngsville, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, October 24, 2013.
She was born August 19, 1931 a devoted daughter of the late Guy F. and Lucy (Brasington) McCloskey. Jean grew up on Park Ave. in Warren and graduated from Warren Area High School. She raised her family in Youngsville and spent many summers at the Brokenstraw Valley Pool watching her girls swim. During that time she volunteered at the Rouse Warren Co. Home. After her children had grown, she moved back to Warren and enjoyed spending time at the Senior Center with friends doing arts and crafts. She lived in Phoenix, AZ, with her daughter for 6 years, moving back here due to being homesick. She loved cats, old TV shows and movies, and while a resident of the Rouse, she enjoyed listening to, and singing old hymns and participating in all the activities, especially bingo, and the church services.
She is survived by her children, Dawn Smith of Bear Lake, Debbie Dale of Avondale, AZ, and Robert (Gail) Jones of Russell, 9 grandchildren, 5 great grandsons and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother Ralph McCloskey and a sister Lois Smith.
A memorial service will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family. Burial will be in the Pine Grove Cemetery in Russell.
The family suggests memorial donations be made to United Cerebral Palsy, 102 East Mermaid Lane, Philadelphia, Pa. 19118.
The Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Services in Youngsville have been entrusted with all arrangements. Condolences to the family may be made at www.nelsonfuneralhome.net.
