Shirley Jones


Shirley Leigh Jones, of Wilmington, NC went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 25, 2014. She was 83 years old.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Jonnie Robert and Emma Bradshaw Jones, her sister Velma Jones, a nephew James Michael Outlaw, Sr. and a favorite brother-in-law James Wilfred Outlaw.

She enjoyed her daily visit at the Ogden “McDonalds Breakfast Crew”. She was a happy go lucky person that laughed her way through any hard situation. Shirley had a true love for animals and made friends out of anyone that she met.

Shirley is survived by her best friend and sister Gladys Jones Outlaw, niece Myra Outlaw Nevarez and husband Sam, a great-nephew James Michael Outlaw Jr., great-niece Hanna Louise Nevarez, and her beloved dog, Buttercup who will all miss her dearly.

Her family would like to thank Ogden Baptist Church and the “McDonalds Breakfast Crew” for their friendship and support.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

    Myra, I am so sorry to hear about Miss Shirley. She was a sweet lady and I enjoyed seeing her and your mom on Sunday morning. I tried to speak to them every Sunday. We will miss her. Prayers for you and the family.
