June 23, 1931 - May 2, 2022
Nancy Ann Jones passed away peacefully at The Terrace at Presbyterian Village North in Dallas, Texas on May 2, 2022 at the age of 90. Born to Edwin Winter Herbst and Florence Elsie Kreim Herbst on June 23, 1931 in Los Angeles, Nancy moved with her family to New Orleans where she grew up. She attended Isidore Newman School where she met her future husband, Robert "Bob" Jones. She completed her college work at Stephens College. Bob and Nancy married Christmas Day, 1951 and recently celebrated 70 years of marriage and devotion to each other. When Bob and Nancy moved their family to Memphis in 1957, they became active members of First Baptist Church. Nancy taught Sunday School and served in Women's Ministry. She also taught English to women for whom it was a second language. Nancy believed God and Church always provided the backbone for their family. She loved being a homemaker, raising four very active children, a grandmother to ten and great grandmother to nineteen little ones. Nancy was active in a number of service organizations including Daughters of the American Revolution and Coterie where she served in leadership roles. In 1979 Bob and Nancy moved to Austin, Texas where they invested their nest egg in a retail shop in a mall. For fifteen years they worked long days and enjoyed the partnership. One of them finally said "Enough of this fun" and they sold the business and moved to Hideaway Lake, east of Dallas. At Hideaway they loved their church friends and their neighbors. Nancy became involved in the Salvation Army Auxiliary. She loved working in her gardens and visiting with her many precious friends there. After fifteen years living in their home on Hideaway Lake, Bob and Nancy decided it was time to settle closer to their children and chose Presbyterian Village North in Dallas as the place God led them to. Nancy became active in Bible Study and reading scripture for PVN's worship services as well as volunteered in many different areas. Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, and her brother, Jack Herbst. She is survived by son John Jones and wife Ann, son Steven Jones and wife Lisa, daughter Kathie Long and husband Dennis and daughter Linda Sparks. The family wishes to express their special thanks to the staff at Presbyterian Village North for their loving care and support. Special gratitude is extended to their wonderful personal caregivers Maria Deleon, Helen Mesfun and Latasha Bundred. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider a donation to Guidestone: Mission Dignity or Presbyterian Village North Foundation Caring Fund. A memorial service is not immediately planned. The family will notify loved ones when a service is scheduled.
