Obituary for Emilie M. Jones

Emilie M. Jones, 79 of Oak Ridge, went home to be with the Lord on August 11, 2018.

Emilie was born December 26, 1938, in Corbin, Kentucky, to parents Alvin F. Mathes and Mae Haskew Mathes.

Emilie graduated from Corbin High School in 1956. After high school, she attended the Tennessee School of Beauty, in Knoxville, Tennessee. Emilie married her high school sweetheart, John Jones, on June 2, 1957. After marrying, she worked as a cosmotologist for a brief time before starting a family. She spent the next two decades as a devoted mom, raising her four children. Afterwards, she went back to school at Roane State Community College where she earned her degree in Medical Technology, and shortly thereafter went on to receive a degree in Nursing. She worked as a registered nurse at Ridgeview Psychiatric Hospital in Oak Ridge, as well as, Parkwest Medical Center in Knoxville before she retired.

Emilie loved her church, and her Sunday School class, where she made many dear friends. She had been an active member of Central Baptist Church in Oak Ridge since 1958.

Emilie enjoyed hobbies of tennis, clogging, line dancing and swim exercise class. She especially enjoyed interacting with people, and could easily connect with everyone she met. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and could find things to laugh about even during difficult times. Her favorite thing was spending time with her family. She was a very devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was loved by all who met her and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.



She was preceded in death by her parents Alvin and Mae Mathes, and brothers Buck Yonce and Rex Yonce. She was also preceded in death by her son Jeff Jones, and grandsons Sanwaun Jones and Nathan Jones.

Emilie is survived by her husband of 61 years, John E. Jones, Jr., and children Jim Jones (Micki), West Lafayette, IN; Kim Holt (Barney), Madison, AL; Keith Jones (Stacey), Knoxville; and daughter-in-law, Connie Jones, Columbia, SC. She is also survived by grandchildren, Kelsey Jones, Kevin Jones (Jamie), Kayla Jones, Matthew Holt (Caroline), Allison Holt, Paul Jones, Micah Jones, and Tatyana Jones; and great-grandchildren, Bryce Jones, Luke Holt, and Zeke Jones. In addition, she is survived by her brother, Max Mathes, Sumter, SC; and her sister-in-law, Helen Yonce, Corbin, KY; and many other nieces and nephews.
