Rose Jones, 92, Ephrata Shoe worker, Gerber retiree
Rose Marie Shematovich Jones, 92, of York, passed away Sunday, Jan. 15, 2012 at her home.
Her late husband, Albert B. Jones, died in 1989. Born in Cecil, she was the daughter of the late John and Rosea Shematovich. Rose was raised by her late foster parents: Clarion M. and Mayme Farmer Piper.
Formerly of Ephrata, Rose retired from the former Gerber’s Sewing Factory. Previously she worked for the former Ephrata Shoe Factory and Moyer’s Sewing Factory, both in Ephrata. The matriarch of six generations and loved very much by her family, Rose was known as a person who liked to laugh, cared deeply about people and enjoyed life to its fullest. She enjoyed playing bingo, reading, working puzzles and writing in her journal which she did her entire life.
Rose will be deeply missed by her children: Shirley Goff, Linda, wife of William Sisler, and James Thomas Jones, all of Newburg, W.Va.; Robert Jones, of Ephrata; Wallace Jones, of Akron, Ohio; Eleanor, wife of Thomas Puskar, of Lititz; and Yvonne Jones, companion of Thomas Eiler, with whom she resided; 16 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; one great-great-great grandson; and a sister: Catherine, of Natick, Mass.
She was preceded in death by three sons: Donald, Albert and Charles Jones; two grandsons: Richard Goff and Donny Jones Jr.; a great-grandson: Michael Hurst; and her siblings: Nick and Thomas Sims, Frank Simtick, Anne Kotvas and Julia.
A funeral service celebrating Rose’s life was held at the Sheetz Funeral Home Inc, Mount Joy, on Jan. 20, with Pastor Glenn A. Hoover officiating. Interment followed in Middle Creek Church of the Brethren Cemetery, Ephrata Township.
If desired, memorial contributions may be made to The Salvation Army, York Corps Community Center, 50 East King Street, York, PA 17401.
