Isaiah 62:4; "Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate; but thou shalt be called Hephzibah (my delight) and thy land Beulah (God's Possession); for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married."
It is with a heart of loss, mixed with eternal hope, that we received the news that Norm Jones is now in the arms of our Father in heaven. While he will be missed here, he is with the ones he loves, God, his wife Lola and the many other saints that have gone before.
Please join us in praying for his family, loved ones and friends during this difficult time.
Norman Junior Jones
June 11, 1922 - June 22, 2020
Norm moved to Michigan in the early 40's and worked at a fruit canning factory in Kalamazoo. He then worked at Fischer Body in the paint department for over 30 years and retired in 1970. During his retirement years, he and his wife of over 65 years, Mary Lola, spent their winters in Arkansas where they enjoyed time with their family. Norm loved farming in his spare time and he and Lola always tended a large garden together. Norm and Lola were the founders of the DeWitt Baptist Church that he loved so much. He then lovingly cared for Lola for years during her illness. After his wife's passing he enjoyed spending time with his good friend, Fay Jones.
Norm was preceded in death by his wife, Lola; parents, Claude and Ada (Long) Jones; brother, Vernon Jones; and sisters, Betty Watson and Nadine Robinson. Surviving to cherish his memory are son, Charles "Butch" (Linda) Jones; grandchildren, David (Kelly) Jones, Lisa Goucher, Greg Goucher; great grandchildren, Brandon Jones, Kyle Jones, and Trycen Jones.
