Judy K. Jones, age 73, of Streamwood, passed away surrounded by the love and prayers of her family and friends, on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, following a fierce battle with cancer.

She graduated from Bell County High School with the class of 1961.

Ventex Plastics in Itasca and Woodstock Plastics both employed her for a time as a quality control manager. Judy retired in 2005.Judy met the man of her life at a local restaurant and as fate would have it, Joe Jonesâ€™s love was on the menu. They were united in marriage on November 10, 1962 in Jonesville, VA. They began their new life together in Melrose Park, IL. They made their home in Stone Park for several years before settling in Streamwood in 1968. Judy had a giving heart and enjoyed giving gifts all throughout the year. She never had what you would call a green thumb, but she excelled at driving Joe a little crazy now and then. Judy loved the challenge of any crossword puzzle she could get her hands on. Joe and Judy also like to travel together, taking trips to Colorado, California, Florida and made memories on their cruise to the Caribbean. The holidays called to her heart like no other and everyday was a holiday when she was able to spend time with her grandchildren. She was a constant at all their games but also enjoyed taking them shopping as well. This past year was full of sunshine when she was able to hold her first great-grandchild in her arms. She is survived by her loving husband of almost 54 years, Joe Jones; Two children: Karrian Rosenwinkel and Greg Jones; Two grandchildren: Courtnay Fiedler and Jacob Fiedler; one great-granddaughter, Ava Jo Christianson; many nieces and nephews and a family of friends.
