(July 28, 1940 - February 9, 2019)
Jean Jones, 78, a long time resident of Pensacola, died on February 9, 2019. She was predeceased by her parents Ezra and Jeanette

Jean was born July 28, 1940, near Poplar Creek. She was a member of Saint Luke United Methodist Church in Pensacola, where she was
a member of the Altar Guild and enjoyed being a part of the prayer shawl ministry. She was instrumental in organizing a group which made
the Chrismons (Christian Symbols) which still adorn the annual Christmas tree. Jean was a master gardener and enjoyed growing
flowering trees, shrubs, and other plants in her yard. Some of her happiest hours and days were spent planting, growing and caring for her
plants. She also grew African violets indoors and was a member of the African Violet Society. She won many awards with her show plants.
Jean's whole life was centered on love. She loved her family, friends, neighbors, her Church and most importantly her Lord Jesus Christ.
Harris, sorry about your sister.
