Eloise A. Jones

CONNEAUT — Eloise “Babe” A. Jones, age 83, of Conneaut, Ohio, passed away early Tuesday morning, April 30, 2013, at the Ardis Rhinehart Kremer Home in Conneaut.

Born July 1, 1929, in Erie, Pa., she was the daughter of Clarence and Eloise (Cox) Loomis.

She graduated from Strong Vincent High School in Erie in 1947 and was a “Domestic Engineer” all her life.

She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Conneaut; a 40 year member of the Moose Lodge, in which she held all chairs with the Women of the Moose; and also an original member for over 60 years of the “Chat and Chew Club”.

“Babe” and her husband, whom she married July 30, 1948, in Ripley, N.Y., enjoyed wintering in Port Richey, Fla., where they served 16 years on their community church committee. She loved to go to casinos, on bus trips, and loved the Cleveland Indians.

Her biggest enjoyment was spending time with her family, family reunions, and family lunches, especially with the “Cousin Lunch Bunch” which included her cousins, Bill Cox and his fiancée, Beverly Saunders, Judy and George Dierich, Jean Spangler, and Bob and Paulette Cox.

Survivors include her son, Robert J. (Terri) Jones of Conneaut; her daughter-in-law, Karen Jones of Fort Mill, S.C.; her sister, Anita Krsak of Mentor; her brothers, Herbert (Betty) Loomis of Pittsburgh, Pa., Charles (Joanne) Beaver of Conneaut and Richard (Mary) Beaver of Monroe Township; her grandchildren, Abbie, Kelly and Mitchell; her great-grandson, Alex Colby; dozens of nieces, nephews and cousins; her cousin and caregiver, Bill Cox; and her special friend, Kim Watson.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert W. Jones in 2006, to whom she was married for 58 years; her son, Dennis R. Jones in 2005; her sisters, Ann Mozart, Mary Jo Taylor and Rosemarie Cosner; and her brother James Beaver.
