Alverta G. Jones

June 17, 1939 ~ July 9, 2022 (age 83)


Alverta Jones passed on Saturday July 9, 2022, at Mercy Hospital. She was 83 years old. Alverta was born on June 17th in Baltimore Maryland to the late Annie and Melvin Chambers.

She was the youngest of two children.  Her brother Jerome proceeded her in death. Alverta professed her life to Christ at an early age. She married her high school sweetheart, the late TSgt Donald W. Jones USAF (Ret)>

This union produced seven children.  In 1971, the family moved to Castle AFB in Atwater, CA.  Alverta worked for Mercy Hospital for over 40 years before retiring.  She was affectionately known as Jonesey.  She loved her job and became a right hand to most if not all the Doctors she encountered.  The staff all loved her. Some who still worked there, came by to see her and towards the end said their teary goodbyes.

She loved to collect dolls do crossword puzzles and watch old westerns. Her joy in life was her family. She used to say her children were her treasures. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and friend.  Everything she did was with her family in mind. When she went to the grocery store, she’d come back with extra so when any of her children came by, they would leave with grocery bags of food.

Even when she shopped her favorite shopping networks, namely, QVC and HSN, if she found a good deal, she would always buy extra so she could share it with someone in the family.  At any given time, she had boxes of stuff under her bed in her closet and in the garage. Whenever you’d ask her why she bought so much her reply was always “I figured somebody could use it and besides, it was a good deal that I could not pass up.”

Alverta was the loving and devoted mother of Denise Wright, Atwater Ca, Donald (Rosalind) Jones, Elk Grove Ca, Derek Jones, Stockton Ca, Daniel Jones, Tucson AZ, David (Lisa)Jones Atwater Ca, Darryl Jones Richmond Ca and Dwight (Leanne)Jones Sheffield, UK. She is survived by 18 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren, one nephew, one aunt, three sisters-in-law, and a host of cousins.
