Nig's smile lit the darkest room and her personality always shined through. There
was always a good time when she was around, and she was “The Life of the
Party." She sang, danced, and loved her family dearly. She was beautiful inside
and out; yet feisty, independent, and called for respect. We are blessed to have
experienced the love of Mary "Nig" Jones 60 years, 10 months, and 22 days. On
Tuesday, October 9th at 10:25 am she gained her Heavenly wings surrounded by
her loving daughters. She was loved by many and will be truly missed.
