Elizabeth A. “Betty” Jones, 98, of the Rouse Home, and formerly of Sheffield and Warren, died on Saturday, January 9, 2021. She was born on June 8, 1922 in Pittsburgh to the late Edwin and S. Lavina (Geer) Greenland. After her 1940 graduation from Warren Area High School, Elizabeth traveled to California during the war years to be wed, have a child and was widowed by age 23. She was indeed part of the greatest generation. Upon returning to Warren, Elizabeth married Robert Jones in 1947 and they expanded their family with four additional children. Elizabeth had a tremendous energy and joy for life and used her assets to create a better world for her family, community, and region. A few of her more prominent activities included: Ruth M. Smith Children’s Home board; co-founder and charter member of the Sheffield Senior Center; Sheffield Medical Center (charter member); PA State Mental Health Association (charter member, president, secretary, and treasurer); Warren County Vo-Tech board (charter member); Warren County Children’s Services board (two-time president); Warren County Children’s Services Volunteers (charter member); charter member and president of the Warren-Forest Mental Health Services Board and was instrumental in obtaining funding for the mental health clinic. Elizabeth served on the United Fund Board, was a charter member of the Warren-Forest Human Services Board and was an active member of the Women’s Clubs in both Sheffield and Warren. One of Elizabeth’s proudest accomplishments as a volunteer was when she was selected to receive the prestigious Warren County Medical Society’s Benjamin Rush Award for her many contributions to community health and welfare. Elizabeth was a life-long learner and kept her mind active through voracious reading and pursuits of art, music, theater, and travel. She was interested in any endeavor involving her children and grandchildren. Elizabeth was a woman of deep faith and served in many capacities in the congregations of two United Methodist Churches. Elizabeth is survived by her children, Diane (Tom) Scarcella of Warren; Bill (Brenda) Jones of Warren and Denton, TX; Sally (Dan) McCue of York, ME and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL; Brent (Nancy) Jones of Warren; and Eileen (Jim) Goodling of Ashville, NY. Elizabeth is also survived by 16 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her volunteer work, Elizabeth’s other great joy was her work as the part-owner and business manager of Jones Chevrolet. She had a proclivity for accounting work and always appreciated the orderliness of her accounting responsibilities. Through more than forty years of management at the dealership, Elizabeth developed a well-respected acumen for business of which she was proud. Whether related by blood or not, she considered all employees of Jones Chevrolet to be her extended family and missed daily contact in her later years. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Lt. Edwin L. Anderson in 1945; and her husband of 53 years, Robert Jones who died in 2000. A celebration of Elizabeth’s life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to Rouse Suites Memory Care Unit (615 Rouse Ave., Youngsville, PA 16371); or the E.S.H.P.G. Scholarship Fund through the Woman’s Club of Warren (310 Market Street, Warren, PA 16365). Those wishing to make online condolences may do so by visiting www.petersonblickfuneralhome.com.

Dear Jones family,

It was my privilege to work with Betty when she served at Children and Youth and later other Boards. She was a joy to work with. Her interest in House of Hope was so very helpful, as we continue to be blessed by her donations that helped furnish the house. She was an encourager and a voice of experience and wisdom. She blessed us all!!
