Barbara “Bobbie” J. Jones, 89, of Huntingburg, formerly of Dale and Selvin, passed away at 11 p.m. on November 29, 2021, at the Waters of Huntingburg.
She was born to Ray and Carrie Ann Rice on November 11, 1932, in Heilman.
Bobbie worked at Songer’s IGA, Holiday Foods and Wayne’s Key Market in Dale, then later at the Selvin Market in Selvin. She enjoyed listening to country music, walking and talking with friends, watching wildlife and spending time with her grandchildren.
Her children say she was the epitome of God’s word. Everyone was always welcome at her house; if you were hungry, you were welcome to what she had and if you were cold, she would give you her coat.
She is survived by one brother, Ernie Rice; two sons, Rick (Mel) Jones and Terry “Pic” (Donatta) Jones; two daughters, Cheri Brinkley and Sandy Marshall (Joe); 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; close family friends, Blaze Robinson and Shelby Hess; and nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Master Sgt. Dallas Neil Jones; a son, Larry Wayne Jones; four brothers, Donnie, Billy Ray, Tony and Mike Rice; four sisters, Emma Lou Davis, Betty Jo Doan, Doris Jean Wampler and Betty Ann Milligan; and close family friend, Sandy Robinson, and her son, Robbie.
Funeral services for Barbara “Bobbie” J. Jones will be held 2 p.m. CST on Saturday, December 4 at Pemberton-Bradley Funeral Home, located at 301 N. Main Street in Lynnville. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be designated in support of a Veterans Organization or charity.
