Obituary for FAYE EULA JONES

Faye Eula Jones, age 89, of Republic, Missouri, passed away on Thursday, September 20, 2018, after a battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. She was born on April 22, 1929 in Roubidoux, Texas County, Missouri, to the late Green Washington and Edna Mae (Boston) Wallace. She was the last to survive of seven siblings, of which she and her twin brother, Ray, were the youngest.

Faye was married to the late Raymond Jones for 61 years. She is survived by their four children, Darrell Jones, Lois Robinson, Sharon Jones, and LaRae Jones, all of Springfield or Republic, Mo. She is also survived by her granddaughters, Jordan Jones, Whitney Hoodenpyle, and Sarah Smith.

Growing up, Faye’s favorite activity was helping with the farm work with her father. She also enjoyed playing sports even before girls had teams. And she did actually walk miles both ways to school in the winter, as she has the frostbitten fingers to prove it.

Faye graduated high school from Houston, Mo. in 1947. She went on to become a teacher, starting in a one-room schoolhouse at the age of 18. She later received her degree from Southwest Teachers College, currently named Missouri State University. She retired at the age of 65 from Crane Schools after over 32 years in education, in order to babysit her granddaughter Jordan. Faye also taught Sunday school class at Republic Assembly of God where she was a longtime member. After retirement, she became an avid MSU Lady Bears basketball fan, even traveling to the Virgin Islands with her family to watch them. Faye was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and was a four-time cancer survivor.

A visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, September 24, 2018 in Meadors Funeral Home, Republic. A graveside service will be at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 in Evergreen Cemetery, Republic.
