Regina was born on December 9, 1921 in Macon County to Archie and Ora Fulmer Borron. On May 2, 1942, she married George Jones. George and Regina were life-long residents of Higbee where they farmed and raised cattle. Regina devoted her life to her family, the farm, her church, and her community. She spent countless hours making sure the family was taken care of and the farm was running. When neighbors would come to help, she made sure that there was a good meal on the table. Regina loved her church. She was the longest living member, a very active member and she would definitely let everyone know. Regina treasured helping with vacation bible school and cooking at summer camp. She was a proud volunteer at the VA Hospital in Columbia for over 20 years, she was also a member of Eastern Star. Regina was an amazing mom, a phenomenal grandma, a remarkable great-grandma George, a wonderful friend who will be greatly missed.

Regina is preceded in death by her parents; her husband George of 46 years; two brothers and sister-in-laws, Kenneth and Lola Bell Borron; Van and Alice Borron.

I got to know Regina after joining the Higbee Baptist Church but she made a lasting impression on me as well as anyone that was fortunate enough to know her. She had a big heart and her presence was infectious in a very good way. I miss her but I know she is having the time of her life in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Till we meet again, I bid you adieu. Love you.
