Josephine Anne "JoAnne" Jones, 72, went to be with the Lord on June 1, 2018, with her children by her side, under Hospice Care at Ayers Health and Rehabilitation in Trenton.
JoAnne was born in Trenton, N.J., Aug. 19, 1945 and was a graduate of Lenape Regional High School, Medford, N.J. She married the father of her children, Kenneth Bellem in the 1960s and basically, independently raised her three daughters.
An adventurous, very independent young lady, she loaded her children up onto an AMTRAK train and headed to Florida to visit her mother and sister; which lead to her returning in 1988 to relocate in Bronson.
She retired from her position as Administrative Assistant from Bronson Auto Sales, Inc., Bronson, where she could go from office, to detailing, to actually selling cars. There she met her second husband Robert Earl "Bobby" Jones Sr.
JoAnne asked for nothing and gave everything. She was always smiling, becoming quickly known as the "unofficial greeter" at Ayers, which in turn found her receiving the Resident of the Month Award in December 2014.
She is survived by her daughters, Donna Bellem, Andrea Turner, Felicia (Robert) Beck; grandchildren Ryan, Corey, Madison (Turner), Kristen (Guertin) and Hailey (Edwards); sister, Veronica I. "Ronnie" Jones and several cousins, nieces and nephews across the nation.
She was preceded in death by both husbands; her brother, Walter L. Nutt, Jr. and sister, Patricia Louise Nutt. Please visit her memorial page at
