Virginia Alice Jones Obituary
Virginia Alice Jones April 1, 1922 - May 13, 2013 Virginia was born April 1, 1922 in Almartha, MO. She was the youngest daughter of George and Cora Bushong. Virginia went peacefully to her heavenly home on May 13, 2013. Virginia met and married her "Army Man" William E. Jones (Bill) in Kansas City Missouri in July 1953. Together they raised three children, David, Warner, and La Don. Virginia, being the devoted wife, travelled with Bill all over the United States while he was in the Army. They were stationed overseas twice in Germany. This was one of the favorite times of her life. She loved to talk about it. When Bill retired from the Army in 1965, they moved to Bakersfield and made it their home. Virginia was a devoted, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, and also a friend. She went out of her way to attend every function her grandchildren had. She attended their sporting events, choir concerts, school functions, church functions and anything else they wanted her to do. She attended church camp with her granddaughters every summer. I'm not sure who looked forward to it more, Virginia or her granddaughters. Virginia was a devoted Christian who attended church her whole life. She spent over 35 years attending Highland Church of Christ where she would meet the ladies who would become her lifelong friends. Together they organized everything from weddings to funerals and everything in between. She was always one of the first to arrive at church, (usually after picking up one of the older members) and always one of the last to leave. She never left a task for anyone else to finish and always took the initiative to make sure the job was done. Virginia is proceeded in death by her parents, George and Cora Bushong; her beloved "Army Man", William E. Jones; her son, Warner Allen White; her brothers, Doin, Hasten, and Leo; her sister, Retha; her son-n-law, Orville Scholl. She is survived by her daughter, Donna Scholl, her son, David Jones; her granddaughter, Tammy Patterson; her granddaughter and husband, Melissa and Donnie Britt; grandsons, Allen and Clinton White; great grandchildren, Jeffrey (and wife Leslie), Shelby, Kendra, Austin, Dylan, Tyler, and Emma; great, great grandchildren, Mikey, Matthew, and Hayden. Virginia was loved by everyone who knew her. She left a legacy on this earth that is carried on through the generations. She was, by far, the best grandma we could have ever asked for. Her memory will be with us forever. We love her and miss her. We will honor her by living for others, like she did. We are comforted knowing we will we meet again in heaven. Visitation for Virginia will be Monday, May 20, 2013 from 4:00 - 8:00 P.M., at Hillcrest Memorial Park and Mortuary (9109 Kern Canyon Road). Services will be held in the Chapel at Hillcrest on May 21, 2013 at 10:00 A.M. www.bakersfield.com/obits
