On August 11, 2020, Mary “Suzanne” Jones, 77, entered into eternity, the result of contracting COVID-19 while in rehabilitation for a recent stroke.
Suzanne was born on September 21, 1942, in Philadelphia PA, the oldest child of Mary and William Neville. Soon after graduating from Archbishop Prendergast High School, Sue taught elementary children at St. Anastasia Catholic School and attended Villanova during the summer. After two years of teaching and college, Suzanne switched paths and began working in the banking industry. She married Richard Jones and began her family, they later divorced.
Suzanne’s most cherished role in life was being a mom, while staying at home to raise her five children and becoming a grandmother. Suzanne’s children are: Robert Jones; John and Kim Jones (David and Jaden), Stevens Point, WI; Mike and Shannon Jones (Kellan and Ailise), Bend, OR; Suzy Jones (Zachary and Zander), Champaign, IL; and Steve and Carrie Jones (Cooper), Combine Locks, WI. She is also survived by her five siblings, Bill and Fran Neville, Alexandria, VA; Christine and John Taylor, West Chester, PA; Mary Pat and Joseph Brake, Lehigh Valley, PA; Mark and Carol Neville, Ardmore, PA; Bernadette Robinson, Lindenwold, NJ; and Mary Jo and Rick Mortimer, West Chester, PA.
Suzanne is now rejoined with her oldest son, Robert. Suzanne loved all of her children, but she worked hard to advocate and protect Bob. Having been born with disabilities, at a time when there were no laws to protect or advocate for him. Sue strived to be his voice, while teaching the other children that love knows no bounds or disability!
Suzanne was met in heaven by her beloved Robert, granddaughter, Ailise, and her parents.
There will be no funeral service at this COVID-19 time. There will be a celebration of life for both Suzanne and Robert, next summer around Bob’s birthday, July 9, 2021.
In lieu of memorial contributions, the family asks that you honor Suzanne Jones by wearing a mask, social distancing and washing your hands. The daily COVID-19 data is far more than just numbers. It represents innocent lives lost. Loved ones taken too soon, leaving many broken hearts behind.
