Dear Jones Family, I want to take a moment to express my deepest sympathy to your family. Our God, Jehovah, desires to bring back those who have died and end all things that cause suffering, as we read at Revelation 21:4. May this and other promises recorded in God's word the Bible continue to comfort your family.

To the family of Ms. Kristina Jones please accept my sincere condolence. Although death of a loved one can cause bouts of sadness please allow yourselves to be uplifted by the promise of endless life with perfect health surrounded by the people who cherished the life of Kris. The scripture at 2 Cor. 1:2,3 calls our Father the God of all comfort. May his love surround you at this time. I look forward to the fulfillment of John 5:28, 29 which tells us that a time is coming when those we have lost will hear Jesus' voice and come back to life! Also, Rev. 21:3, 4 when death will be no more. It is my wish that these scriptures provide you with comfort. For more encouraging words please visit jw.org which will also provide ways to cope with grief. Again, I am sorry for your loss.

Kristina Ann Kath Jones, 62, of Savannah, Georgia, passed away on Thursday, March 2, 2017, at the home of her daughter, Meredith.

Kris, as she was known, was born in Dayton, Ohio on May 20, 1954, the daughter of Frederick J. and Margaret M. Kath, who preceded her in death. After graduating in 1972 from Fairmont East High School, she attended the University of Kentucky. With her husband, Richard (Rick) Jones, she settled in Louisville, Kentucky, eventually moving to Savannah in 1986, where she began her career in interior and office design, working for Ivan Allen, the office supply and furniture company, for many years. After briefly living in Jacksonville, Florida, she returned to Savannah in 2005, where she lived until her death.

Kris was a devoted mother and proud grandmother, a loyal friend to all, and an adored sister and aunt. Kris mastered cooking and preparing holiday meals, enjoyed reading, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren. She was a lifelong fan of The Ohio State University and University of Kentucky sports teams, loved politics, the beaches of Tybee Island, and New York City.

Her husband, Richard (Rick) Jones, preceded her in death in 2002, along with her parents-in-law, Richard C. and Nell P. Jones.

She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Sarah and Jon Zellhoefer of Miami, FL, Meredith and John Hyche of Savannah, GA; three grandchildren, Memphis Zellhoefer of Cañon City, CO, Emerson Clark and Patrick Hyche of Savannah, GA; sister and brother-in-law, Susan M.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, 7200 Hodgson Memorial Drive, Savannah, GA.
