Betty Jean Jones

Jones, Betty Jean 78, a proud Arizona native, passed away after losing a long and bravely fought battle with heart and pulmonary disease on February 2, 2011. Betty was born on August 13, 1932. She was the seventh and youngest child of Odessa (Smith) and John Franklin Robison. Betty attended Phoenix Union High School for three years before transferring to West High, becoming a member of its first graduating class in 1950. At a USO dance in the spring of 1952, she met the love of her life, James “Jim” Ray Jones, a young airman from Kansas. Betty and Jim were married on June 14, 1952. They were married for 58 years. She was a long-time member of TOPS Clubs and attended until failing health prevented her from doing so. She enjoyed music, drama, art, and fashion design, and loved to sing. In later years, she attended drawing classes at Glendale Community College. Betty was a fiercely loyal and loving caregiver to her family to the very end. No birthday or anniversary in her large extended family ever slipped her notice. Betty is survived by her husband, Jim, their three children, James Stephen Jones, Linda Snelson (Lanty), Laura Jones (Bill Kirk), grandson Aaron Kirk, sisters Dorothy Brodersen and Ellen Sorey, brother Billy Robison, and many nieces and nephews. Her sisters Katy, Frankie and Ruth preceded her in death. Betty was dearly loved, and as Jim is fond of saying, “Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall in love with a beautiful redhead.” She will be missed immeasurably. There will be a visitation beginning at 10:00 AM on Friday, February 11, 2011, with services following at 11:00 AM. Both will be held at Hansen Mortuary, 8314 N 7th St, Phoenix. Interment will follow immediately at Greenwood/Memory Lawn Cemetery at 719 N 27th Ave.
