Gussie met her husband Casey Jones while working at the post office in Rend City, Illinois. They married October 27,1918 and had seven children, four daughters and three sons. They raised their family at Carlyle and Centralia, Illinois.

Gussie grew up loving music and could still play her organ in the later years of her life. Her son Tom's life long love of music most likely came from her.

When her children were teenagers, they were allowed to roll up the rugs, push back the furniture and invite friends over to enjoy music and dancing to records on the Victrola. Gussie would make huge bowls of popped corn and serve a popular fruit drink.

In the 1930's, Gussie was the parent in charge during summers at their rustic cabin by the river. Casey would come out on days he wasn't working, but she supervised chores, cooked and kept an eye on her five children as they worked to keep food on the table and helped make "ends meet" during those Depression years.

Gussie was a member of the Woman's Club, War Mothers, Eastern Star, Centralia White Shrine and the Order of Amaranth of Centraila. She died at age 88 in St. Mary's Hospital, Centralia, Illinois.
