Jeanne Jones

Jeanne Jones, 87, of Lewistown, Montana, passed away Monday, Dec. 4, 2017. 

I was born March 17, 1930, in Lewistown, a daughter of Chester and Evelyn Birdwell. I lived in Roy, Montana, until 1941, when the family moved to Lewistown. 

I graduated from Fergus High School, and after graduating worked at several businesses in Lewistown. On Oct. 24, 1953, I was united in marriage to Herb Jones. We continued to live in Lewistown for our entire lives. 

I enjoyed many hobbies, including: knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, gardening, cross-country skiing, and all outdoor activities. 

I am survived by two sisters, Carol Fraser of Lewistown, and Donna Yaeger of Lincoln City, Oregon; three brothers, George (Eva) Birdwell, Gale (Carol) Birdwell, and Larry (Wilma) Birdwell all of Lewistown; and my beloved nieces and nephews, Mike, Steve, Karen, Kevin, Randy, Ralph and LaRayne, Linda, Dave, Tia, Bret, Cory, Kris, Matt and Jason. 

I was preceded in death by my husband, Herb Jones; my parents; my brother, Chester, Jr.; and my brothers-in-law, Joe Fraser and Bill Yaeger.
