Phyllis Jane Jones

d. August 28, 2018

Phyllis Jane Jones, 80, passed away on August 28, 2018.

Phyllis Jane Jones was born Phyllis Jane Berry in Richmond Indiana. She peacefully passed on to her final rest in Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, while at her home in Burnet, Texas. Phyllis was a faithful member of Burnet Bible Church in Burnet, Texas.

Phyllis was a godly woman who served her family and friends tirelessly and graciously her entire life. As a child, Phyllis’ education began at home as “the son her father never had.” She was playfully called “Peanut” by her "Pop.” She grew up working at her father’s side driving tractors, baling hay, plowing, and cutting grass. Together they would go every Saturday to Victory Housing at the Wright-Patterson Airforce Base to collect newspapers for recycling, and repaired anything that needed to be fixed. “Fixing” things came in very handy for her throughout her entire life.
