Chris Davis officiating.  Her grandchildren will serve as her urnbearers.  Visitation will begin one hour prior to the service.  Following the service a time of coffee and fellowship will be hosted by the church.  To leave online condolences or to view the video tributes please visit www.jonespearson.com.
