Jacqueline Ruth “Jackie” Jones Thaxton, 88, of Leon, WV, passed away November 20, 2013, in the Pleasant Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

She was born May 30, 1925, in Charleston, WV, a daughter of the late George and Theresa Beatrice (Carney) Jones. Her siblings also preceded her in death.

She was a bookkeeper, a cashier, and member of the Church of Christ.

She lived an arduous life, which was defined, by her belief in God: “God is perfect love; His love created humanity. His love gave us Jesus as a perfect sacrifice; finding His love in our heart assures salvation. Follow God’s love in our hearts, study His message in the Bible. Our salvation will keep us in His house for all eternity.”

Survivors include her sons, Daniel Thaxton and John Thaxton, both of Leon, three grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.

Private burial will be held Friday, November 22, 2013, at Spring Hill Cemetery, Charleston.
