Emma Kathleen "Kitty" Jones

December 10, 1928 - May 20, 2019

Emma Kathleen “Kitty” Jones, 90, was called home to be with her Savior, Monday morning, May 20, 2019.  Kitty was born to Ray and Etta (Kreischer) Vian on December 10, 1928, in Jackson, Michigan, and resided in the Norfolk area for more than 70 years.  It was here that she met her husband of 62 years, Bailey F. Jones, and raised a family of seven children.  While raising their family, they attended Calvary Baptist Church, and later Kitty was a member of Fellowship Baptist Church for more than 30 years.

In addition to her parents, five sisters and four brothers, Kitty was predeceased by her husband Bailey F. Jones, Sr., two sons, Robert Sawyer and Bradly Sawyer, and one grandson.  She is survived by five children: Bailey Jones, Jr. (Phyllis), Daniel Jones (Gina), Kathy Christensen, Susan Schroeder (Larry), Laurie Jones, sixteen grandchildren, and twenty-one great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Lake Taylor Transitional Care Hospital, with special thanks to the staff in Camelia wing, for the care and consideration they showed to Kitty and her family.  We also extend thanks to Altmeyer Funeral Home, Pastor Donald O’Dey and his wife Brenda, and Pastor Richard Smith and his wife Sherry for their assistance to the family.

A funeral service will be held Friday at 1:00 p.m. at Fellowship Baptist Church, 419 Glenrock Road, Norfolk.  The family will receive friends at a reception in the church social hall immediately following the service.  The burial will be held at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens in Norfolk at 3:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Union Mission Ministries in Norfolk at unionmissionministries.org.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
