May 29, 2020

Renate Gertrud Jones, 82 years young, left this life to enter the next chapter on Friday, May 28, 2020. She was born on March 15, 1938 in Bautzen, Germany.

She met her Army soldier and married him in Stuttgart, Germany and came to the United States in 1962; where she raised her family in Norwalk.

She was loving and strong willed and there was nothing she would not do for her children.

In the early years she rode her bicycle everywhere that was her transportation. She enjoyed crocheting and spending time with her family.

She is survived by her children Michael R. Jones of Norwalk, Tina Ruffing of North Fairfield, Annei (Jerry) Smith of Norwalk. Her grandchildren Alexis (Jackie) Ringlein, Joey Ringlein, Cheyanna Ruffing, Jessie Ruffing, Jessica Jones, Dakota Jones, and numerous great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her beloved granddaughter, Tiffany Ruffing in 2019, and her husband of 50 years, Olray Jones, in 2012.

At Renate’s request there will be no visitation service.
We love you; may you rest in peace.

Annei. Thank you so much for sharing your mother with me. We sat one night at the kitchen table and I had the privilege of hearing about her wonderful life. She is a treasure. She will be missed.

Sad to hear that you've passed Jonsey.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. [2] He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. [3] He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. [4] Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [5] Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. [6] Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23:1-6 KJV
I pray that you will rise at the first resurrection, because...

Sorry to hear that Jonesy passed, but there is no next chapter.
For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. [6] Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 KJV
