Marie Grace Jones, 77, passed away on September 6, 2020, with her family by her side in Miami, Florida.

She was born in Wadsworth, Ohio on May 7, 1943. Marie graduated from Wadsworth High School and received her bachelors from Kent State.

She was married to her high school sweetheart, Douglas R. Jones on March 7, 1964.

Marie was a Kindergarten teacher at Wadsworth Elementary in Ohio and taught at a Christian school in Miami, Florida until her first child was born. She became a substitute teacher to continue her passion of education while raising her children. After her kids were grown she became the office manager for her husband’s company, Douglas Mechanical Inc.

She was a member of Kappa Phi Sorority and the president of her group up until 2019.

Marie’s passion in life was serving her savior, Jesus Christ. She, alongside her husband, ministered to the youth at North Dade Church of God and Youth for Christ well over 30 years. During those 30+ years they fostered over 36 children in their home.

Marie had many interests and hobbies that included leading the church choir, singing, sewing, floral design, decorating for events, hosting gatherings at her home every Friday night for the church youth group and spending lots and lots of time with her kids and grandkids.

She is greatly loved and will be missed by her husband, Douglas R. Jones; children, Cindy Jackson, Christy Palmer, Joanie Caruso, Dan Plourde, Daisy McCarthy and their spouses; 18 grandchildren; sister, Alberta Zook; in-laws, Jim and Georganne Lutz and Dave and Peg Guiley; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
