Obituary of James Virgil Jones


Heights Funeral Home

James “Virgil” Jones, 91, passed from this life into eternal life on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. He was born Saturday, June 20, 1931, as one of seven children to the late Columbus Edward and Daisy Maybelle Jones. Virgil is preceded in death by his wife, Maria “Rita” Jones. He is survived by his loving daughter, Anna Marie Doody; son-in-law, John Michael Doody; and a host of other relatives and friends. Virgil’s Christian faith was an essential part of his life. He was a devoted member of Houston’s First Baptist Church and enjoyed many years of Biblical fellowship with his fellow church members. He also sang in the church choir and rejoiced in singing songs of praise to the Lord. While he will be missed by many, we are thankful that he is again in the arms of his beloved wife Rita, who died in 2011.
