Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Mary Annette Jones was born October 6, 1934 in Springhill, Alabama to the late Modell Crook Huckaby and Walter Boutwell. In her late teenage years, she married the love of her life, James Jones, and remained married until his passing in the late 1980s. Together, they raised four boys in addition to working in the local mills. She later received training in healthcare and worked as a nurse with Midtown Medical Center, Cagle’s Plant in Pine Mountain Valley, various nursing homes, and eventually as a traveling nurse. In her spare time, Ms. Jones adored flower gardening and watching them grow. She was an avid reader, enjoyed fishing, and watching her favorite shows, “The Golden Girls” and “Alice.”
