Obituary of JAMES EDWARD JONES SAFFORD: Funeral services for James Edward Jones, 75, who passed away Sunday March 22, 1970 in the Safford Inn Hospital following a lengthy illness, were conducted at 3:00 p.m., Wednesday in Caldwell's "Chapel of the Valley", with Rev. B. R. Medlin of the First Southern Baptist Church officiating.
The service began with a solo, "I've Done My Work", by Mrs. Josephine Stevens. She was accompanied on the organ by Mrs. Peggy Jones.
Rev. Medlin then read scriptures and prayer and offered words of comfort to the family. The services came to a close by Mrs. Stevens singing "Abide With Me". Masonic graveside services were conducted at the Safford Cemetery by Safford Lodge No. 16 F and A.M.
Casket bearers were members of the Safford Masonic Lodge.
"Ed" Jones, born in Centralia, Texas, spent his early life in Texas, and joined the U. S. Army in World War I, serving in France. He then returned to Oklahoma where he worked in the oil fields for many years.
He came to Arizona in 1947 settling in Thatcher, then moving to Pima.
He and his family moved back to Thatcher in 1955, where they had made their home until his passing.
