Melva Elaine JONES

JONES, Melva Elaine., age 73, went to sleep in this world to wake up with God. Melva was born May 4, 1939 in Springfield, OH. She was a graduate of Springfield High School, Class of 1957 and graduated with honors from Central State University in Political Science and Child Development. Although her life was full of community activism, artistic pursuits, educational and political activities her main focus was always family. Her son Pablo Duane Jones, parents Melville William and Marguerite (Mills) Liggins, sisters, Charlene Alicia Malone and Theresa Irene Bradford had been called before her. She has now been reunited with them. We praise God for her life, her love and her faithfulness which have been exemplary models for us all. Melva is survived by her husband of 56 years, John Paul Jones of Trotwood, OH and (7) of her eight children: Juan Eltonio Jones (Jill), Koala Elisa Jones, Jose LaMont Jones (Leticia), Talana Elaine Johnson (Jeffrey), Carla Maria Battle (Joseph Jr.), Carlos Maurice Jones (Connie) and Ricardo Desmond Jones (Kathleen). Always surrounded by family, Melva is survived by (3) sisters, Vanetta Liggins, Jacqueline Simmons and Karen King; (21) grandchildren and (5) great grandchildren in addition to many nieces and nephews and friends. Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 P.M., Saturday, July 21, 2012 at Thomas Funeral Home, 4520 Salem Avenue, Trotwood, OH 45416 with Pastor Robert E. Jones officiating.
