On July 3, 2014, at the age of 92, Helen Jones of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, passed away. She wanted all to know that she died thinking of the new world where there will be no more pain or sorrow, only peace and happiness forever.
She was the daughter of the late Daniel A. and Esther P. (Smith) Harrison. She and her husband, the late Obie Jones, were married for 66 years. Obie passed away on May 14, 2006.
A lifelong resident of the Waynesboro area, Helen had many interests. Among them were reading The Record Herald, sewing, working anagrams and puzzles, and playing dominoes and upwords. As a young woman she taught herself to play the piano and in her later years was learning to strum the strings of a guitar. Most important to her was studying God's word, the Bible, and sharing Bible truths.
Helen was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1962, attended the Waynesboro Congregation and was able to share in various forms of the public preaching activity over the years.
She is survived by her son, Obie Jr. and his wife Judy of Waynesboro; two daughters, Deborah Alston and her husband John of Silver Spring, Maryland, and Christine Jones of Waynesboro; three granddaughters; one grandson-in-law; two great-grandchildren; five step-grandchildren and their families; a sister Jean Porter and her husband John of Ypsilanti, Michigan; and a number of nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Wilbert Harrison; and three sisters, Elva Jones, Betty Hill and Mary Compton.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 26, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 3901 Waynecastle Road, Waynesboro.
In lieu of flowers, Helen wanted to extend an invitation to a free Bible discourse at your local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.
