Joan Rowland Jones Obituary
JOAN ROWLAND JONES went home to be with the Lord on Oct. 22, 2016. Joan was known for her out-going personality and generosity. Consistant with her unique personality, Joan did not want a funeral. So knowing full well she accepted Christ as her Savior and was in heaven, her immediate family had a "party" to celebrate her life telling stories, eating her favorite foods and watching her favorite team, the Cubs play in the World Series. Joan was born in San Francisco on June 23rd, 1935. She lived many places including Chicago, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Hemet from 1974-2007 and Fort Worth, Texas until her death. Her hobbies included reading, knitting Christmas socks and hats and scarves for the homeless. She also taught young girls how to knit at her church. Along with being a homemaker, she worked for Hallmark Stationery, Thackaberry's Dress Shop and Southwest Bank and volunteered as a Girl Scout Leader and for the Friends of the Library (Hemet). She was preceded in death by her first husband, Richard Rowland and second husband, Everett Jones. She is survived by her daughters, Gerri Burger, together with her husband Bill of Hemet, and Jennifer Lunsford, together with her husband Tim of Fort Worth, Texas.
