Judith “Judy” (Lowman) Jones, age 85, after a well-lived and selfless
devotion to her family passed away peacefully at home surrounded
by her family in Sunbury, Ohio on Tuesday, September 22, 2020
following a long battle with multiple health issues. She was a strong,
loving, intelligent and giving soul, who raised her daughters to be
the same. She was beautiful both inside and out, and her faith in
God comforts her and her family with her passing,
“He prayeth best, who loveth best,
All things both great and small,
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.”
