Shirley Marie Jones

BOISE-Shirley Marie Jones, 81, passed away March 7, 2008, at a nursing home in Boise, Idaho. She suffered for many years with Alzheimer’s disease.
Shirley was born July 17, 1926, a daughter of Stanton Wallentine and Irene Wallentine. She married Gene Jones on June 3, 1942.
She had two sons, Warren Jones born October 19, 1943, and Jerry Lee Jones born March 10, 1945.
Surviving are her son Warren of Boise, Idaho and her brother Keith Wallentine and his wife Kathy of Salt Lake City. She also has surviving nieces and nephews.
Her husband Gene preceded her in death on April 16, 2000. Her son Jerry Lee Jones preceded her in death on June 25, 1976 after service with the Red Cross in Vietnam.
Shirley was a member of the Valley View Baptist Church in North Ogden for many years before Alzheimer’s disease prevented her from attending. She relocated to a nursing home in Boise, Idaho following the death of her husband in 2000.
Shirley worked for many years in the cafeteria of Weber State University as a cook and server and enjoyed her interaction with other employees and with the many students there.
She loved reading and, most of all, playing with her dogs and cats that she loved dearly. She loved all animals and was a volunteer and contributor to the local animal shelter. In lieu of flowers, the family would request a contribution to the ASPCA or the local animal shelter.
