Alva Alvin JONES was born September 29, 1916 in Grand River, Iowa the son of Andrew Jones and Anna (PRESTON) JONES. He grew up in southwest Iowa where he attended rural schools.

On August 7, 1940, he was united in marriage to Louise JEANES in Mount Ayr. To this loving union four children were born, Ronald Dale, Donald Dean, Vicki Sue and Nancy Ann.

Alva farmed all of his life working closely with his wife Louise on various southwest Iowa farms where they raised their family. In 1957, he purchased a farm northeast of Clearfield. He retired from farming in 1980. He and Louise continued living on the family farm until moving into Lenox in 1997.

Alva enjoyed being a farmer and the lifestyle it provided. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing when time allowed.

Alva was a people person and knew no stranger! He had a tremendous sense of humor and wit and was always willing to share a story or two. Alva's love was for his family, they were his main interest in life. He was a devoted husband who visited his wife Louise daily at the Lenox Care Center for the past two and one half years. He has been a member of the United Methodist Church for over fifty years.

Left to cherish Alva's memory are his wife Louise of Lenox; two sons Ronald JONES and wife Shirley of Joplin, Missouri; Donald JONES and wife Sharon of Marengo, Iowa; two daughters, Vicki HUFFMAN and husband Dennis of Melcher, Iowa; and Nancy RILEY and husband David of Lenox; eleven grandchildren and twenty-one great-grandchildren.

Preceding Alva in death were his parents; three brothers, Forrest, George and Horace JONES; three sisters, Faye JONES, Vivian BAKER and Hazel CREVELING. May God grant comfort and strength to those who mourn Alva's passing.
