Nancy B. Jones, age 85, of St. Charles died Monday, May 17, 2010 at Delnor-Community Hospital in Geneva.
She was born November 30, 1924 in Champaign, Illinois to Ferrel M. and Irene B. Bean.

Upon moving to Wayne, IL in 1952, the Jones family became active members of St. Charles’ Episcopal Church. Her contributions included many years of service as co-manager of the St. Charles Episcopal Thrift Shop. Additional charitable activities included service to the American Red Cross and membership in the Junior League of Chicago.
Among her happiest and most memorable times were those spent with family and friends at Dunham Woods Riding Club in Wayne.
Mrs. Jones is survived by two sons, Douglas B. (Mary) of St. Charles and Cave Creek, Arizona, Richard F. of Hong Kong, two daughters, Susan Jones of Indianapolis, Indiana and Emily (Andrew) McMillin of Barrie, Ontario, Canada, five grandchildren, Melisa (Anthony) Coletto, Brian Jones, Andrew, Robert and Katherine McMillin, two great-grandchildren, Max and Alex Coletto.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, John W. (Bill) Jones in 1988 and a daughter, Laurie Jones in 1984.
