Lanell Jones

Born 1939 in Nashville, Georgia
Departed June 13, 2023 in Melbourne, Florida

Lanell Jones gained her angel wings on June 13, 2023, while surrounded by her loving family, in Melbourne, Florida. Lanell was 83 years old.

Born in Nashville, Georgia in 1939, Lanell was the second oldest of eight children to Carson and Mildred Pafford. Lanell and Robert (Danny) married in 1984. Not a day went by where Lanell didn’t talk about how much her great grandchildren and family meant to her — her family was arguably the most important achievement in life.

Lanell is survived by her husband Robert (Danny) Jones, of nearly 40 years. She is also survived by her children, David Corbitt (Linda Miller) and Michelle Saadat (Ray), step-children, Charlotte Hulgan (Stuart) and Allen Jones, and siblings, Lorene Powers, Joann Buckelew (Alan), Terry Pafford (Penny), and Candy Vickers (Troy). Lanell was also blessed as a grandmother to her grandchildren, Lida (Jeremy), Tosha (Russell), Candice (Tanner), Cailey (Roger) and Ethan, and her great grandchildren, Layla, Lily, Lucas, Ashlynne, Miles. She is also survived by countless other family and friends. Lanell was preceded in death by her parents, Carson and Mildred Pafford, and siblings, Trevia Grimes, Jerry Pafford, and Sue French.

Lanell was one of the kindest souls on this planet and will be deeply missed by everyone whose lives she touched. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to the Hydrocephalus Association, a cause near and dear to Lanell’s heart, to continue her love and support for her great grandson Lucas.

My heart is broken over hearing of the loss of my dearest friend 😭. Lanell was just like a sister to me. All the times we shared laughing until we cried. Lanell always had a smile on her face as she greeted the neighbors who passed by her driveway walking their dogs. The love that she had for "Tippy" and " Suzie" ( her canine companions) shown brightly. If only we all could leave behind a legacy like she did, one that when you think about her, a smile automatically comes across your face. May it bring great comfort to her family that she was loved by so many... God bless you and keep you during your time of sorrow 🙏🙏.
