Thelma Jean Jones Spry went to be with her Lord and Savior on October 5,
2015. She had endured many struggles along life’s way, but always kept her
faith and trust in God. He has called her home now to be with him. Jean
loved her God and her family more than life itself and sacrificed so much
for her family that I’m sure they don’t even realize.

She has left this earth to rejoice in Heaven with loved ones that have gone
on before: her mother, Maude Jones, her father, James Matthew Jones,
sisters, Laura Coffelt, Dean McMasters, brothers, G.W. (Buck ) Jones, J.B.
Jones, Walter Jones, Jimmy Jones, William (Bill) Jones, and a special
friend, Ruben Franklin.

Staying behind to celebrate her new life in Heaven: daughter, Wilma (Dwain)
Wright, son, Ray (Gail) Spry, 6 grandchildren: Wendy Barton, Stephanie
Fults, Rebecca Lapcynski, Thadd Barton, Abigail Little, Keaton Spry, and 8
great grandchildren, brother, Bill (Ruth) Jones and sister, Ruby Shelton,
and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Jean spent her life working hard to earn a living as a supervisor at PCA and
Park Industries. She retired, knowing retirement wasn’t for her and she
worked several years at South Central Human Resource Agency.

Other than her family that meant the world to her, she enjoyed sewing,
gardening and playing rook, reading God’s word and going to church. She was
a member of the Original Church of Jesus Christ.

She had a strong will, a heart of gold and will be missed by all who knew
her.
