Florence May Jones
August 30, 1932 – February 24, 2019
Florence May Jones, age 86, passed peacefully away in her Houston home on February 24, 2019. Florence was born August 30, 1932, in Salford, Lancashire, England to Charles McMinn and Evelyn Sparrow. She married and had two daughters, before immigrating to the United States in 1955 to raise their family in northeastern Ohio, later having two sons and becoming a naturalized citizen.
Florence was always a hard worker, as a mother, seamstress, caterer, and homemaker. Her passions were: flower arranging, cake decorating, and antiquing.
Florence is survived by her husband, Alfred A. Jones and all four of her children: Sharon Jones, Ahlene Shong, Jace Jones, and Christopher Jones, daughter-in-law Kimberly Jones and son-in-law Dr. Robert Shong. Also, surviving Florence are three sister-in-laws: Joyce McMinn, with nephew Michael; Audrey Hulse with niece Tracey and nephew Andrew; and Barbara Jones with nephews Charles Jones, Stephen Jones, and Scott Jones. Keith Suek is also a surviving nephew.
A Memorial Service will be held in Florence’s honor on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 2 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 5531 Beechnut, TX 77096.
