She was the loving wife of Walter Jones; and a caring sister to her brother, James Clelland and his wife Jane, and to her sister, Kimberly Thorne and her husband Jeff. She was committed to her family and daughters, Ann Brennan and longtime companion Jeff Bryant, Susan Brooks and Dajia Jones; and sons, Edward Brennan and David Brennan and his wife Amilie Brennan; a stepdaughter, Ashley Lantz and husband David, and Brandy Jones.
