OBITUARY - WESLEY THOMAS JONES

Wesley Thomas JONES, 51, of Kansas City, Mo., died November 29, 1987, at the Des Moines V.A. Hospital. Wesley worked as a painter and carpenter for the past 25 years, commuting from his home in Redding, Iowa, until six years ago when he moved to Kansas City, Mo.

Born in Liberty, Iowa, on December 31, 1935, to Marvin William JONES and Lillie Florence WILLIAMS JONES SOPER, Wesley spent the first 14 years in Osceola, Iowa, where he resided with Roy LARSON and Minnie LARSON-DRAKE. During 1953-54, he served in the United States Air Force.

On September 14, 1955, Wesley was united in marriage to Gladys Minerva ROBERTSON.

Wesley was able to leave the hospital Thanksgiving Day to spend time with his wife, children and grandchildren at the home of Donna and Kent BLUNCK in Des Moines, Iowa. Pastor Len GREEN renewed the wedding vows between Gladys and Wesley during that time.

Wesley is survived by his wife, Gladys Minerva JONES of Redding, Iowa; children, Donna Lou BLUNCK of Des Moines, Marcia Lynne LONETTI of Redding, John Wesley Jones of Kansas City, Mo. and Robert Duane JONES of Mount Ayr, Iowa; and grandchildren, Joshua Thomas and Kent Jordan BLUNCK, Thenae Lynne LONETTI and Melida Joy, Christopher Alan and Linda Kay JONES.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, December 1, 1987, at Prugh-Dunfee Funeral Home in Grant City, Mo. Wesley was laid to rest in the Miller Cemetery near Denver, Mo. He will be missed by all of his loved ones.

"We strolled with you down valleys deep,
We've climbed a few high mountain peaks
As for our eternal, Heavenly home we seek."
