Florence F. JONES Obituary
JONES, Florence F. Florence Foshee Jones passed away peacefully at her home in Palm Desert, Calif., on November 18, 2017, at the age of 99. Florence, the only daughter of George Monch Foshee and Bessie (Hughes) Foshee, was born in Red Level, Ala., on April 9, 1918. Florence, a graduate of Troy University in Dothan, Ala., resided in Atlanta, Ga., for 70 years. Florence was an avid gardener and enjoyed surrounding her home with beautiful flowers and spending time outside chatting with friends and neighbors in her Atlanta neighborhood. Church also held a high priority in Florence's life and she was an initial member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Northwest Atlanta, where she attended weekly services and continued her support after leaving Atlanta in 2008 to join her son in California. She thoroughly enjoyed life in the Southern California desert through her remaining years and was assisted with her daily activities by Maria Lozano, her long time caretaker. Florence was pre-deceased by her parents, George and Bessie Foshee; her husband of 44 years, James Alfred Jones; her son, John Michael Jones; and her brother, Glenn M. Foshee. She is survived by her son, James Alan Jones of Rancho Mirage, Calif.; her brother, John G. (Betty) Foshee of Birmingham, Ala.; three grandchildren, Michael Alan Jones of Lexington, Ky., Robert Scott (Alma) Jones of Torrance, Calif., and Rick Alan Jones of Torrance, Calif.; along with six great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Florence will be returned to Atlanta for interment with her husband at Westview Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Forest Lawn, Cathedral City, CA.
