Obituary for Nora F. Jones

Nora F. Jones (nee Blake), age 83, passed away February 28, 2018 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born November 2, 1934 in Killard/ Doonbeg, County Clare, Ireland, daughter of the late Harry and Nora Blake. Nora maintained a youthful curiosity about people and life and experienced many adventures in her life with grace, good humor and determination. She loved art and poetry and could recite poems and songs verbatim on any occasion. She was born and raised with her large family in Ireland and immigrated to the United States and proudly became an American citizen in 1962. She never took her citizenship for granted and proudly flew the American flag at her home. Nora was known for her gracious, kind and generous nature. She was warm and welcoming to others and people were drawn to her loving spirit. She was fiercely loyal to her family and could always be counted on to keep a secret. The greatest joy in her life were her grandchildren. Nothing would make her face light up more than seeing her grandchildren walk into a room. Nora is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, G. Robert "Bob"; her loving children: Michael (Marian), Kathleen (David) Morris, Nora Jones, Mary K. (James) Di Giovanni, and Robert (Jami); her sisters: Catherine (James) Myring and Loretta (Tom) Gallagher and sister-in-law, Kathleen Blake; 12 grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her son, David John; her grandson, Thomas and her siblings: Joe (Peggy), Sr. Mary Regina, Sr. Mary Theckla, Sr. Theresa Benedict, Bro. Felix, Sr. Mary Gabriel, Patrick, Michael (Bridget), Jenny (Michael), Mairead (Robert) and Harry.
