Edna Earl Jones, 81, passed from this life Saturday, August 19, 2017, in Jackson.

Visitation will be 9:00-11:00am, Wednesday, August 23, 2017, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl, with funeral services at 11:00am, in the funeral home chapel. Graveside services will follow at 2:30pm in the Good Hope Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Martinville.

Edna retired from the MS State Veteran's Home Purchase Board after more than 38 years of service and attended McLaurin Heights Baptist Church in Pearl. A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, Edna's family was her heart and her greatest joy was in providing and caring for them. Selfless to a fault, Edna would give all she had to help someone in need. Her heart for others guided her life and her sweet words and benevolent acts of kindness extended well beyond her family members. She will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.

Survivors include her husband of 55 years, Horace B. Jones; son, Brent Jones and wife Katie; sisters, Mary Jackson and husband Harold and Carolyn Ward and husband Doyle; brothers, T.D. Easterling and John Easterling and wife Barbara; and grandchildren, Jasper and Chase Jones.
