Elaine was born August 9, 1921 in Mt. Vernon, Illinois to Guy and Mabel Fox. She grew up in Mt. Vernon and graduated from the township HS. Elaine met her husband, Keith Jones, when they were children together and they always knew they would be together. They eloped in 1940 and lived in Illinois until they moved to Kansas City in 1954 for Keith's job. She worked as a bookkeeper for Turner State Bank for many years, retiring in 1983. They were very active members of the First Baptist Church of Turner, teaching Sunday school, sitting on the Board of Christian Education and taking part in the Golden Agers club. Elaine was a wonderful seamstress and cook, she could make anything with her hands, whether it be clothing or a can of home-grown vegetables. She loved her family and especially loved doting on all her grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Guy and Mabel Fox, her husband Keith Jones, her infant daughter Carol Sue Jones, her sister, Myra McGrew and her brother K'Lemoyne Fox.
Elaine leaves behind her son, Larry Jones and his wife Connie; her daughters, Barbara Canaan and Gayle Canaan and her husband Richard; her brother, Gene Fox and his wife Mary Alice; her grandchildren, Brian and Eric Jones, Brett and David Czirr, Bobbi Lee Roth and Steve, Kurt and Jason Harp; as well as 16 great grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren.
Fond memories and condolences may be left for Elaine at www.chapelhill-butler.com, as arrangements are under the direction of Chapel Hill-Butler, 701 N. 94th St., KCK.
