Noa Rae Jones
November 13, 2020 – December 29, 2020
Noa Rae Ann Jones, born Nov.13, 2020, gained her angel wings Dec. 29, 2020. She is survived by her parents, Justin and Whitney Jones; brother, Tennessee; sister, Kodi Rose; Nanni, Candy Snyder; Pop-Pop, Glenn Cromwell; grandma, Kathleen Jones; grandfather, Chuck Jones; aunt, Jennifer Jones; uncle, Christopher Cromwell; great-grandparents, Eva and William Scott; and her dog, Bucket. She was preceded in death by her great-grandmother, Betty Ann Snyder. Noa Rae's life was far too short, yet her death has left a huge hole in our hearts. We are forced to remember her today, and for always, as the determined, and ironic teenie, tiny baby who had to make her debut on Friday the 13th of 2020. Our teenie, tiny "Thirteen" who will never see childhood or adulthood, but will remain our teenie, tiny baby forever. Our lives were touched by her tenacity to be here, her indomitable spirit, her captivating personality, her fiery disposition, her discerning eyes, and the joyful surprise that we got to know her at all. We had you in our minds, in our hearts, and in our future. We had you leaving the NICU, meeting your family, sharing a room with your sister. Learning to walk, playing with your siblings, hugging your dog. Starting school, making friends, starting fights. Driving a car and your daddy crazy. Graduating, getting married, and having children of your own. You were not "just" a teenie, tiny baby, but our baby, a real person and a whole part of our future that we have to move forward without. You will always be missed. You will always be loved. You will always be ours.
