the presence of God to receive the keys to his new home, his mansion

in heaven.


Eddie Roy Jones, 60, peacefully departed this life on the morning

of April 16, 2020 at St Luke hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

family of eight which included seven boys and one girl. Eddie

health issues that rendered him physically disabled for the

remainder of his life. He met and married his wife Nancy Schilling

daughters, Pamela, and April Jones.


He was preceded in death by his parents, three siblings- Priscilla

(Sista), Raymond, and James (Nookie) Jones, his first daughter

Pamela Jones (infant), special niece Michelle Jones, a cherished

1 st cousin who helped raise him Ora Lee Jenkins, and his loving
