Betty Jean Jones, 77, of Paris, KY, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, December 26, 2019 following a long illness.
She was born February 8, 1942 in Spout Springs, KY, to Amos and Edna Conner. She was one of fourteen brothers and sisters. Along with her parents, Betty is preceded in death by her husband and soulmate of 31 years, Roy T. Jones, Jr., her son, Ronnie Gene Rose, and her four brothers, Amos Jr., John, Earl, and Elmer Conner.
Betty is survived by her children, Ray Rose Jones (Patty Crider), Susan Rose Rodgers (Dennis), Cathy Fletcher, Tammy (William) Gray, and Jeff (Lori) Jones; grandchildren, Tyler (Kara) & Keegan Rose, Austin & Kelsey Jones, Audri Lawrence, Joshua & Jessie Fletcher, Jeremiah Lotz, Caitlin Hunt, Talia Ormsby, Tia Craig, Spencer & Emily Sledd, Justin Marshall, Jalin Mills, Lyndsey Hawkins, and many great-grandchildren; six brothers, Frank Conner, Willie Conner, David Conner, Lawrence Conner, Elbert Conner, and Paul Conner; three sisters, Virginia Atwood, Norma Brinegar, and Lula Thomas.
Betty, a retired homemaker, dedicated her life to raising her children and grandchildren. She loved entertaining family and friends, her bowling league, Euchre tournaments, fish fries, music, and traveling with Roy. To know Betty was to love her. She was a giving and kind spirit with a smile that was contagious. Her door, along with her heart, was always open.
There will be a life celebration at her home with close family and friends at a later date.
We want to thank all the family and friends that stopped by to visit Betty. It meant the world to her. We want to say a special thank you to the Cynthiana Hospice Team who are now and will always be a part of our family.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that contributions be made in her memory to:
