Helen Diane Jones

March 21, 1947May 4, 2020

Helen Diane Jones, 73, of Orlando, Florida passed away on May 4, 2020. She was born in Cross City, Florida on March 21, 1947 to the late William D. and Dora (Futch) Petty. Diane had begun her professional life as a hairstylist when she met her beloved man in uniform, Jerry. When Gerald L. “Jerry” Jones made her his bride, she was blessed enough to transition to the role of homemaker. God blessed them with two wonderful children, and Diane cared for them all well. She still spent some time as Head Secretary for a florist, another world of beauty. And, when she and Jerry found their church home, they sang in the choir together for a while; but her delight abounded when she began teaching the kindergarteners. Diane touched many lives along the way, and they dearly miss her. She was preceded in death by her dear parents; her sister, Judy Yates; and her brothers, Tharon Petty and Bill “Junior” Petty. Diane is survived by her loving husband, Gerald “Jerry” Jones; children, Kerry Jones and Aaron Jones (Meghan); grandson, Gavin Meloney; sister, Carol Dawes (Ed); sisters-in-law, Kathy Petty and Penny Petty; cousin, Marnie Everman; and, her fur baby, Angel.

I've been friends with Mrs. Jones daughter Kerry for several years and have had the privilege of getting to know the whole family. Mrs. Jones was a feisty, strong, but funny lady. I enjoyed the times we sat around talking for hours. She'll be greatly missed, but now Heaven has a gained another angel. My family and I send love and prayers to the whole family at this difficult time.
