She loved the Lord and her church. She attended church every Sunday and worship services at the Baptist Retirement Home. She loved her family and in turn was loved very much by her family. She cared about her friends and was a blessing to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed. Surviving are two nieces, Barbara Morton and her husband, Melvin, of Asheville, and Marie Marsh of Black Mountain; one great-nephew, Eddie Morton and his wife, Mandy, of Asheville; two great-nieces, Becky Dalton and her husband, Lynn of Asheville, and Martha Israel and her husband, Tom, of Appleton, WI; and five great-great-nieces and nephews.

Memories Timeline


  1. Mrs. Jones was a very kind, sweet lady. I was her pharmacist many years ago before I moved from Asheville; and she certainly made a lasting impression on me with her love of life and enjoyment of every day she had. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Please accept my deepest sympathy in the death of Viola. She had been attending my church for some time and we had grown to love her.
