Obituary for Bernice M Jones

February 15, 1921 - January 18, 2018
Holland, Michigan | Age 96


Bernice M. Jones, age 96, of Holland, went to her heavenly home on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

Bernice was rich in family and was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was a dedicated homemaker with a gift for simple hospitality, always able to stretch what was on hand to welcome anyone. She was born in Chicago in 1921 and moved to Escanaba, MI with her parents and brothers in 1928. There they built a small family farm. She married, Arthur, the love of her life, and they began raising their large family in the abundance of nature and outdoors that living in the UP provides. Job opportunities eventually led the couple to move their family to Borculo, MI in 1960. There she loved the rural life.

Bernice was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur Jones in 1990, as well as a daughter, Mary Ellen Miller in 2016 and a son Dennis, of childhood cancer, in 1954.

Bernice is survived by her:
