Ronald Jones, 81, of Le Mars, Iowa passed away on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at the Good Samaritan Society in Le Mars. Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at All Saints Catholic Parish – St. Joseph Church in Le Mars. Father Bruce Lawler and Father Jerome Cosgrove will concelebrate Mass. Burial will follow at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery in Remsen, Iowa. Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 at the Mauer – Johnson Funeral Home in Le Mars. The family will be present from 5-7 p.m. with a Parish Rosary at 6:00 p.m. and a Scriptural Prayer Service at 7:00 p.m. Visitation will resume at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday at St. Joseph Church.

Ronald B. Jones was born on October 18, 1937 in Le Mars, Iowa, the son of LeRoy and Priscilla (Bohlke) Jones. He was raised in Sioux City, Iowa and graduated from Heelan High School. Ron attended Iowa State University and graduated from the University of South Dakota.

Ron met his wife to be Gerri Donovan at Heelan High School and they were married on July 11, 1959 at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sioux City. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with their two children, Richard Jones of Snohomish, Washington and Patti (Jones) Bush of Saratoga, California and their grandson, Tristan Bush also of Saratoga, California.

Ron and Gerri enjoyed a wonderfully full life together. They have lived in multiple states and traveled to just about all corners of the world. After seeing so many countries, their African Safari stands out as their favorite trip. Ron and Gerri returned to Le Mars after a successful 34 year career with Kmart and 14 moves across the United States. Ron and Gerri had always planned on returning to Le Mars upon retirement to enjoy their beloved Iowa. Upon their return, they reconnected with many friends from Heelan High School and took up playing golf, hunting, traveling, fishing and too many trips to list! Ron felt strongly about giving back to the community and he volunteered at church, the hospital, the Eagles, Kiwanis, and Life Skills Training Center.

No matter where they were in the world or what they had, Ron’s greatest joy and love is his family. Until recently, they made multiple trips to the west coast to watch their grandson, Tristan Bush, grow up and spend time with their children. Ron also had a great love for his dogs. Throughout his life, he was rarely seen without one of his faithful companions who always brought great joy to him.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

In honor of Ron and in lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Life Skills Training Center, Good Samaritan Society, and All Saints Catholic Parish.
