October 23, 1922 - December 26, 2017
Mary B. Jones passed from this life on Dec. 26, 2017, at her home, at the age of 95. She was born Oct. 23, 1922, in Tatum, TX to John L. and Alma (Smith) Vinson. Graveside services will be held at 10:00 am on Friday, December 29, 2017, at Lakewood Memorial Park, officiated by Rev. Dr. John Cunyus. Interment followed under the direction of Crawford-A. Crim Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, December 28, at the funeral home. Mary was a member of First Christian Church of Henderson. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Clay Jones, son-in-law Greg Kelley, grandson John-Eric Gentry, brother John H. Vinson and sisters Aurelia Clark and Louise Prycer. She retired from Goodyear in 1980. During WWII she moved to Orange, TX and worked in the shipyard. She was a licensed electrician's helper and also a pipefitter. Her job was taking parts to the crow's nest, although she didn't like heights. She was a caregiver to any family or friend that needed her help. Anyone who stopped by never left hungry, as she always wanted to feed people, whether they were hungry or not. She always thought her greatest accomplishment was being a mother. Education was always important to her as she wanted the best for anyone who was going to school to better themselves. She was "momma or grandmother" to family and their friends. She thought of everyone as a part of her extended family. She was a true care-giver, never questioning the time or effort to take care of sick family. She took that role seriously with no reservations until her health prevented her from continuing. She fought a good fight and was a very strong woman and was the heartbeat of the family. She is survived by son Curtis Jones and wife Karen and daughters Stacy and Kelley, daughter Donna Gentry and son Clay, and daughter Helen Kelley and children Jim, Bridget, and Alison. She also had 9 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. A special word of thanks is due to Talider Leath and Angel Care Hospice.
