Sarah Ellas Jones passed away at her home in Jasper Sunday, March 23, 2014. She was born Jan. 7, 1931.

Sarah was a godly mother who devoted her life to making life better for others. She will be greatly missed.

Her love for her Lord, her husband of 59 years and her family was truly God-ordained. She became an even stronger role model for those whom she loved, and those who cared for her while living with Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease — a virtuous woman, full of faith, courage and hope. It is the prayer of her family that her life would point others to God, the source of our faith, hope and love.

Visitation will be Wednesday, March 26, 2014, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Westside Baptist Church. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, March 26, 2014, at 1 p.m. at the church with Dr. Fred Lackey and the Rev. Jerry Boyd officiating.

Jones was preceded in death by her husband, Olin Coy “Pete” Jones Jr.; daughter, Yvonne Jones; parents, Ted and Anna Pearl Ellas; and sister, Wilma Ellas.

She is survived by her sons, Olin Coy “Teddy” Jones (Kay) of Jasper and Steve Jones (Patti) of Jasper; daughter, Denise Timmons (Joe) of Jasper; grandchildren, Kim Posten, Crissy Sharp, Shae Jackson, Dustin Jones, Jamie Luker, Tiffany Bellville and Will Timmons; 11 great-grandchildren; brother, Roy Ellas of Birmingham; and four sitters who have taken wonderful care of and loved her like their own, Pat Jordan, Edna Duncan, Margaret Bauscher and Val Ingram.

Pallbearers will be Dustin Jones, Will Timmons, Leon Hice, Gary Harris, Terry Price and Bill Sims. Honorary pallbearers will be Larry Hudson, Stanley Wade, Jerry Murray and Malcolm Tuck.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made in her memory to the Gideon Bibles.
