Mary Ione Jones
1914 - 2011

Mary Ione Scott Jones, age 96, joined her Lord Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at the Madrid Home. A Memorial Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 in the Chapel at the Madrid Home in Madrid, IA. The family will greet friends one hour prior to services.

She was born December 2, 1914, in Leroy, IA, to Pearl Al and Margaret Mae Baker Scott. Her marriage to Joseph Morgan Jones in 1933 endured for 68 years until his death in 2001. Left to mourn her loss are a son Joseph Jones and his wife Gloria, a daughter Mardelle Crawford and her husband Leland, a son-in-law Dennis Cummings, nine grandchildren, 21 great- grandchildren, twelve great-great-grandchildren, her twin sisters Doris Caldwell and Dorothy Claycomb, Dorothy's husband Archie, numerous nieces and nephews, and many loving friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, two daughters, a son, her parents, two brothers, and one sister. Memorial contributions may be made in Ione's name to the Madrid Home, Madrid, IA.

Ione's father homesteaded in Montana and it was while living there that she was born. At age 5 the family returned to Iowa where she grew up on a farm near Garden Grove. She and her husband lived in Southern Iowa until 1952 when they moved to South Dakota. When Morgan retired they moved to Colorado where they resided until his death. She then returned to her roots in Iowa, and felt as though it were a homecoming. She lived by herself for the first time in her life in a senior apartment, and enjoyed every minute of her independence. Following a hip fracture she moved to an assisted living facility, Ballard Creek in Huxley, IA. With declining health she moved to the Madrid Homes in Madrid, IA, where she lived until her death.

Ione was very outgoing and never saw a stranger; her warmth and caring drew people to her. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and homemaker, being a talented cook and seamstress. When she decided to work outside the home in the 1950's she did so with joy. She loved her Lord, and was so thankful to be able to attend worship twice weekly while residing at the Madrid Home. We want to thank the staff at the Madrid Home who became her second family and took loving care of her. ~ The Des Moines (IA) Register Fri 20 May 2011.
