MECOSTA — Marianne Christine Jones, 74, passed away at her home on School Section Lake on Friday, Oct. 2, 2015.
Our inspirational mother, grandmother and great-grandmother led a spectacular life that began on Feb. 17, 1941, in Greenville, Ohio. The daughter of Marvin and Dorothy Jones, she soon moved to Evart with her sisters Bobbi Nigro, of Gloversville, N.Y., and Becky Komminsk of Lima, Ohio. It was here that she learned the positive attitudes and values of growing up in a small town. She became an amazing seamstress and bowler and learned to appreciate what you have, not what you don’t have.
