Pensacola - Jean Jones, 78, a long time resident of Pensacola, died on February 9, 2019. She was predeceased by her parents Ezra and Jeanette Applewhite, a sister Grace Willing and a brother James Applewhite. She is survived by her husband of 58 years Gerald Jones, sons Nathan Jones (Linda) and Mark Jones, sisters Janie Burns and Kathryn Applewhite, brothers John and Harris Applewhite, and numerous nephews and nieces.

Jean was born July 28, 1940, near Poplar Creek, MS. She was a member of Saint Luke UMC and enjoyed being a member of the Caring and Sharing Sunday School Class. She was a member of the Altar Guild and enjoyed being a part of the prayer shawl ministry. She was instrumental in organizing a group which made the Chrismons (Christian Symbols) which still adorn the annual Christmas tree. Jean was a master gardener and enjoyed growing flowering trees, shrubs, and other plants in her yard. Some of her happiest hours and days were spent planting, growing and caring for her plants. She also grew African violets indoors, was a member of the African Violet Society. She won many awards with her show plants.

Jean's whole life was centered on love. She loved her family, friends, neighbors, her Church and most importantly her Lord Jesus Christ.
