Mary Virginia was born to the union of Dan and Lillie Green on January 16, 1928, and passed from this life on July 31, 2022, at her home. She was a faithful servant of God and a member of the Haile Church of Christ. She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband C. R. Jarmon and their daughter, Angelyn Jarmon Duty; her second husband Brooks Jones; her brothers Daniel Green and Bobby Green.
Left to cherish precious memories are her children, Marilyn Preaus and husband Joe of Farmerville, Scott Jones and wife Ava of Marion, Josh Jones and wife Lesia of Monroe, and Carolyn Cobb and husband Gary of Farmerville; grandchildren, Marc Duty and wife Krista, Lesli Thomas and husband Chris, Dan Preaus, Kasey Price and husband Jason, Ben Jones and wife Mandy, Derek Jones, Courtney Robert and husband Taylor, McKenzie Jones, Kyrstyn Jones, Anna Kinnison and husband Chase, and Avery Cobb; her nine precious great grandchildren who brought a special twinkle to her sparkling blue eyes, Shelby, Cooper, Brody, Lillie, Gracie, Brooks, Shepard, Barrett and Mack; her sisters-in-law, Gail Green, Judy Green McConkey, Jayne Smith-Green, Shirley Jones and Julia Harbour, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Our adored mother, grandmother and MeMother cherished family gatherings just so she could watch and hear the sharing of memories and laughter of those she loved. Wednesday afternoons were definitely one of the highlights of her week, enjoying games of Canasta with her dear card ladies. She was a true sports enthusiast who always had a TV on watching a sporting event and could talk sports with anyone. She loved her flowers and bird watching especially her cardinals but not those blue jays. Her legacy of determination, kindness and grace will be treasured.
Grandsons will serve as pallbearers.
Visitation will be held Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Farmerville Church of Christ. Her family extends gratitude to her church family who expressed their love for her in so many ways, Dr. Kerry Anders and staff, Louisiana Hospice and special caregiver Delta Hobbs Medlin to whom we are forever grateful. Any planned memorials can be made to Roark-Allen Cemetery, P. O. Box 7, Marion, LA 71260 or Spanish Missions, 306 East Franklin Street, Farmerville, LA 71241.
