OBITUARY - THOMAS JEFFERSON JONES.
Thomas Jefferson JONES was the youngest son of Nr. and Mrs. W. E. [Walter E. and Elsie B.] JONES. Little Thomas, as he was best known,
was born October 7, 1926, near Benton, Iowa, and passed away March 12, 1928, being one year, five months and five days of age.
He was taken sick with measles which developed into pneumonia. All was done that loving hands could possibly do to prolong his little life
but God saw best to take him to be with Him.
To know little Thomas was to love him and his many baby ways and sweet smiles will never be
He was the youngest of five children. Reva and Cecil preceded him in death. Olive and Weldon are left to share his loss in
the home. He leaves for a little while his father, mother, one sister, one brother, his aged grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. N. A. GUNTER, and a host of
other relatives and friends."I cannot and I will not say
He is not dead, he's just away;
With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand
He has wandered to an unknown land.
And las left us wondering how very fair
It needs must be since he lingers there.
And you, oh, you who so deeply yearn
For his tiny steps and his glad return
Think of him now as then, I say
He is not dead, he's just away."
The funeral was held from the Christian church at Benton
March 14, conducted by Rev. Dennis DILLE. Burial was made at Marshalltown cemetery [near Benton].Card of Thanks.
