Viola Mae Jones, age 87, received her angel wings on July 10, 2009, when she passed away at her home.


Viola was born Sept. 23, 1921, in Franklin County, Okla., to parents Hugh and Bessie Johnson. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother.


In 1947, she married the love of her life Elwin (Jim) Jones. They made their home in Concord, Calif., for 30 years with their three children. After Elwin’s retirement they moved to Lake County in 1973, where they lived until Elwin’s death in June 1991. There they both enjoyed boating and fishing out on cache creek.


Once Elwin passed away, Viola moved to Napa, Calif., for six years to be closer to daughter Shirley, later moving to Pittsburg, Calif., to spend her final nine years with daughter Linda, son-in-law Robert and granddaughter Gabrielle.


Viola is preceded in death by husband of 44 years, Elwin (Jim) Jones; brothers, A.C. Smith and Harley Thomas Johnson; sisters, Lorene Itaten and Ruby Vinci; and grandson, Floyd (Dinger) Huckaby.


She is survived by her two daughters, Linda Jones Cole (Robert), Shirley Jackson (David); son, Floyd Huckaby Sr (Julie); grandchildren, Gabrielle Cole, Mark Jackson, Tasha Jackson-Williams (Jason), Mark Huckaby (Paula); and great-granddaughter, Amelia Williams.


A memorial to celebrate Viola’s life will be held Aug. 1, 2009, at Heather Farm Walnut Creek, Calif. Donations in her memory may be made to Hospice of East Bay, “Bruns House,” in Alamo, Calif.
