Ella Louise Batts passed away on Friday, October 2, 2020. Louise was born September 10, 1935 to Jake Kendrick Jones and Augusta Cleo Prince Jones of Knoxville. She was married several times but said she met her true love in 1979 when she married Donald Batts DDS of Knoxville. She had two brothers Don Jones and Jake Jones Jr. She did not have children of her own but enjoyed her brother's children. Nephew Donald Lee Jones of Knoxville, Anthony Jones of Arkansas, nieces Dana Jones of Maui and Dona Jones of Atlanta. She was very fond of her pet cockatoo named Seymore that had been with her for over 40 years. All her life she loved to gamble, drink, smoke and to celebrate life. She was a world traveler and enjoyed setting sail on cruses. Her brother Don was a singer at many different night clubs such as The Senators Club here in Knoxville and she would follow him around and sometimes say she was a “Background singer”. She spent hours and hours making sure her hair was “just right” before going out to party. She always stated that she had no regrets in life and did it her way. She loved a good argument no matter who won and shopping for clothes at West Town Mall. She believed in God and went to Knoxville Baptist Tabernacle.
