Obituary of Davina Jones
April 22, 1933 - Dundee, Scotland
September 25, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta
It is with great sadness that we share the quiet passing of our loving Mum, Nana, Wee Nana, on Sunday, September 25, 2022.
Vina was born in Dundee, Scotland, met the love of her life in London and made the decision eventually, to make Canada her home. She never lost her love of all things Scottish, especially the bag pipes, Haggis, and Arbroath ‘smokies’. Vina was known to speak to just about anyone and made friends wherever she went. Before her illness, Vina was known for her cooking skills and her family has truly missed the meals and treats she would make. If you stopped by for a visit there was always time for a ‘cuppa and a bickie’, or anything else you may like (she would always say ... ‘or there’s’ …). She always had more than one option for you to chose from and you were always welcome to share her time, energy, and wisdom.
She was a loving mother to two sons and daughters-in-law, Craig and Heather Jones and Grant and Cathy Jones. She was the adoring Nana to Sarah (Justin) Cory, Ryan (Amy) Jones, Erica (Lorn) Berry and Daniel (Isobel) Jones; and a cuddly ‘Wee Nana’ to Eric Jones, Owen Berry, Nora Jones, Ethan Berry, and Genevieve Berry. Vina was predeceased by her husband Eric in 2010.
At her request there will be no service or memorial. Condolences, memories, and photos can also be shared and viewed here.
In living memory of Vina Jones, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road SE, Calgary, Ab t2x 3j3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.
