Phyllis M. Jones

 

 

Hi, my name is Phyllis Jones.  I was born and grew up on the family farm, south of the small town of Perry, Kansas.  I had a younger sister Lucy, an older brother Donald, and a younger brother Chester.  I married my high school sweetheart, Ronald Edward Jones.  I was a homemaker, and we raised three children: Jan (Dale) Smith of Highland Park, Illinois; Sally (Dave) Lamp of New Glarus, Wisconsin; and Ronald (Louise) Jones of Bellevue, Iowa.

My husband’s employment with J.C. Penny (as a store manager) required us to move several times.  We made our home in St. Joseph, MO; Ottumwa, IA; Bethany, MO; Macon, MO; Muscatine, IA; Kewaunee, IL; and now I reside in Bellevue.  I love to garden, sew, read, and make quilts.  I have four grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
