    Jones Family…So sorry to hear of Mrs.Elizabeths passing. I used to do her hair, and we had a lot of fun! She was always quick witted and so spirited. I know that she was a true southern lady with lots of class, and will surely be missed.

    My Aunt Elizabeth was an intelligent lady of sophistication and beauty who was dedicated to her family. She and her sister Desdie had a deep bond that few siblings have known. My mother and I will miss her and we pray for the comfort of her family and loved ones in these mournful days.
