Mrs. Viola Marie Jones
A Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother
The journey of life has taken us through transition, much like the seasons of the year. We appreciate the miracle of birth, the freedom of childhood, the time to realize adulthood dreams and the joy of living a fulfilled life at peace with ourselves and our creator.
At this point, we understand the journey.
