RICHMOND — Helen Maxine Jones, 85, of Richmond, Ky., passed away after a sudden illness on Saturday, July 12, 2014, at Compassionate Care Center.

She was born February 2, 1929, in Madison County, Ky., the daughter of the late John B. and Bessie Parrish Jones. She was a graduate of Kirksville High School Class of 1947 and graduated from Eastern Ky. University, Class of 1951.

She was a retired teacher having taught home economics at Middlesboro High School in Middlesboro, Ky., and taught English while living in Ohio for a short time. She spent most of her career serving as Librarian at Tates Creek High School in Lexington, Ky., from which she retired.

She was a very good, loving caregiver to her mother before Mrs. Jones passed away. She enjoyed traveling, writing, singing and painting. She especially enjoyed singing with the Richmond Choral Society and playing bridge with her fellow school teachers.

Helen was a member of the Kirksville Baptist Church.    

She was preceded in death by four brothers, John O. Jones (Edna), Pierson Gentry Jones (Suda), Robert Jones (Florence), and Earl Dean Jones (Mary); two sisters, Mary Pillion Howell (Atlas) and Elizabeth Brock (Garland).

The little ones always brought a smile to her face and a twinkle in her eyes.

Visitation will be after 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Combs, Parsons & Collins Funeral Home.
