SAN ANGELO The Lord welcomed quite a character to heaven on March 14, 2014, when Jan Jones left this world. Janith Van Orden Jones was born on Oct. 9, 1935. She is survived by her brother, Frank Van Orden Jr. of San Francisco, Calif.; son Michael Jones and his wife Kathy; daughter Leslie Kincade and her husband, John; daughter-in-law Rhonda Jones; grandchildren Christopher Jones, Cameron Jones, Sean Kincade, Lucas Kincade, Eric Jones, Courtney Jones and Camille Jones. Jan was preceded in death by her son, Charles Jones Jr. Jan was born in Trinidad, Texas, and graduated from the University of Texas
Nursing School. She raised her children in Fort Stockton, where she had several vocations, including serving as administrator of the local nursing home and President of the Fort Stockton School Board. Jan served as school nurse at San Angelo Central High School for many years. One of Jan's passions was spending time in Honduras, where she supported and staffed a health clinic. Jan collected thousands of pounds of medical supplies from local charities and transported them to Honduras for the treatment and care of those too poor to afford care. Many doctors and dentists joined Jan in her health mission to the people of Honduras. Jan will be dearly missed by her family and many friends. The family will gather together to receive friends from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 18, at Johnson's Funeral Home. The memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 19, 2014, at First United Methodist Church in San Angelo. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to First United Methodist Church.
