MALAD — Mary Connie Jones Lewis returned home to her Father in Heaven on May 14, 2012, surrounded by her loving family and friends at the Oneida County Hospital after a courageous battle with several health complications. She was 77 years old. Connie was born on August 9, 1934, in Malad City, Idaho, to Vernon A. Jones and Zelma Atkinson Jones. She grew up and was educated in Malad.
She married Jack Servoss on October 18, 1951, but they later divorced. She was the loving mother of three children who she adored, Linda Lee Isaacson, Vickie Lamb, and John Arthur Servoss. She married Ned L. Lewis on July 2, 1977, and to this union came another daughter who she thought of as her own, Nacona N. Williams.
Connie was loved by all who knew her. She was an inspiration and example to her children. She always taught them the value of hard work. Connie worked at the Oneida County Hospital for six years, and then went on to work at La-Z-Boy as a stock chaser, where she was later promoted to supervisor. She retired after 17 years but could not handle the extra time on her hands and returned to work at the Oneida County Hospital once again.
Connie was known for her ability to cook. Her family looked forward to meals at Grandma’s house. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She supported and adored each and everyone one of them. She took great pride in her yard, where she spent endless hours working along the side of her dear husband.
Connie was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She held multiple church callings and had a strong testimony of the gospel. She accepted everyone for the way they were and never judged anyone.
Connie was survived by her loving husband, Ned; and her four children, Linda (Mike) Isaacson of Malad, Vickie (Greg) Lamb of Malad, John Servoss of Vernal, Utah, and Nacona Williams of Malad; and one brother, Vernon Ronley (Debbie) Jones of Phoenix, Arizona. She had 18 grandchildren and 37 greatgrandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, Randy A. Jones.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, May 18, at noon in the Malad LDS Seventh Ward Chapel, 200 W. 400 N.
