Lou Edith Jones age 99 of Burkesville, Kentucky passed away on Sunday, April 17, 2016 at NHC HealthCare in Glasgow, KY after an extended illness.  Lou Edith was born on May 14, 1916 in Cumberland County, Kentucky. She was raised in the Big Renox Community of Cumberland County. She was a daughter of the late Alfred and Emma Garmon and the granddaughter of the late Charles W. and Sallie Bell Garrett and Sam and Nancy Garmon, with whom she lived after the death of her last surviving parent when she was twelve years old. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Richard Godfrey Jones and her son Charles Ray Jones.  

Lou Edith was a helpmate to her husband in their farming operation.  She loved gardening and sharing her fresh garden vegetables with her family and friends.  She was a lifelong member of the White Hill United Methodist Church and treasurer of the White Hill Cemetery Board.  Her dream was to accumulate enough funds for the cemetery so that it could be maintained from the interest it earned.
