  • She will be missed by all, She was a very special person and sister in law. So many memories going thru my mind from years gone by, There will never be another Aunt Ginny and Uncle Bean and eases my mind to know they are once more together as they always were.

  • When I first met Anita I did not like her because she stole my older brother away from me but over the years I grew to understand about those things and I knew he made the right choice in life. Anita was all anyone could want as a friend and family member, she was opinionated and had her convictions. Her and brother bill started the great Jones dynasty that will carry on their memories for many years.
    We know that there has been a reunion in heaven that will last an eternity, may they rest in peace.
