Monticello Paper October 17, 1946

Mrs. Nellie F. Jones
Succumbs In Chicago;
Funeral Held Sunday

Funeral services for Mrs. Nellie F. Jones, 69, of Monticello, who died at 9:30 a.m. Friday at the University of Illinois Research Hospital in Chicago, were held Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Methodist church here with Rev. Thomas P. Krumpo officiating. Interment was in the Monticello cemetery.

Mrs. Jones had been ill several months and had been a patient at the Chicago hospital for ten days preceding her death.

The wife of Roy H. Jones, Monticello township supervisor and grain dealer here, Mrs. Jones was prominent in church and local women's activities. She was a member of the Methodist church, the Monticello Woman's Club and the Friday Sewing Club. Always happiest when she had the members of her family with her, Mrs. Jones only recently had that pleasure when the entire family was present to celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Jones' 47th wedding anniversary.

Mrs. Jones was born March 3, 1877, near Monticello, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ira Miner. She was married to Roy H. Jones of Monticello on August 24, 1899.

Preceded in death by a daughter, Hazel, she is survived by her husband and seven children: Mrs. Helen Trenchard of Deland, Mrs. Ann Lucille Laird of Chicago, Mrs. Beulah Williams of Monticello, Mrs. Nellie Stensel of Farmer City, Paul of Monticello, Kenneth of Danville, and Robert D. of Pittsburgh, Pa.

She also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Pearl Webb of Clearwater Kansas, and Mrs. Emma Hall of Bement; two brothers, James Miner of Monticello and Roy Miner of Cisco, and nine grandchildren.
