Marianne W. Jones
passed away peacefully and with grace on June 27, 2009. She was born to Marie and Patrick Henry Waddill in Richmond, Virginia on September 30, 1924. Raised in her beloved Virginia with an endless passion for learning, Marianne graduated from Westhampton College now The University of Richmond. While there, she met her future husband, Fred C. Jones, who was attending Virginia Military Institute. They married in 1945 and moved to his hometown of Phoenix where they planted firm roots and raised their family. Although she never lost the devotion or love for her Southern roots, Marianne gave selflessly to many community services throughout her life in Phoenix. There was no one ever more dedicated to their faith, family or friends than Marianne – and she always made time to bring happiness and comfort to others. She possessed an infinite curiosity for life, and loved crossword puzzles, playing cards, cooking, traveling, the beach and Iron Springs. Marianne was preceded in death by her husband in 2007, and is survived by her children: Ann Latane Scardello Pete, Trish Waddill Padelford, and Frederick Graham Jones Tina. She also leaves a wonderful legacy to five grandchildren: Peter Kris, Stephen Katie, Patrick Jenna, Marie and Carrie Matt; and six great grandchildren: Lauren, Allison, Mia, Cross, Faith and Ashley. Thank you for all you have shown and given to us, Mom/Gammo… we will forever cherish and miss you! A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, July 7th at 10:30 AM at All Saints Episcopal Church, 6300 N. Central Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name may be made to The Board of Visitors, 1801 E. Cactus Wren Drive, Phoenix, 85020, or the Arizona Cancer Center/UAF for Breast Cancer Research, 1515 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, 85724.
