Martha Bell Jones was born on Oct. 22, 1937 in Clanton, Alabama. A former Chilton County Peach Queen, Martha attended Auburn University, where she was a cheerleader.
She married Dr. James E. Jones, and they have three children: Angie Garner (Pat), Darlene Head, and Byron Jones; five grandchildren: Trey Garner (Sarah), Krista Dabbs (Nick), David Garner (Annie), Brittany Head, and Taylor Head; eight great-grandchildren: Kennedy Head, Gates Garner, Garner Dabbs, Gray Dabbs, Briggs Dabbs, Ford Garner, Jones Garner and Hobbs Garner, and awaiting the arrival of great-granddaughter, Chapman Garner in December. She is also survived by one sister, Katherine Baker.
She was preceded in death by her parents, James D. Bell and Lora Rose Oliver Bell and two brothers: Henry Bell and Jimmy Bell.
Martha was passionate about genealogy and she loved to travel.
She loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and exemplified a Christ-like spirit in her daily life.
Martha loved her family so much. Her children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren were the love of her life. She loved her husband James dearly, and he adored her. James and Martha Jones illustrated what a Christ-centered marriage is all about.
Martha Jones lived big and loved big. She had a way of making others feel as though they were the most important person in the world. We’ve lost a beloved friend and matriarch, but heaven has gained an angel. Martha enjoyed life to the fullest, and we should consider ourselves blessed to have been a part of this wonderful life. The family would also like to thank the companionship and services of caregiver, Logan Osbourn.
