Janice Sagraves Jones


Mrs. Janice Sagraves Jones, age 77, of Olive Hill, Kentucky, was serenaded into heaven by her family, surrounded by love, Sunday evening, June 9, 2019, at her residence.

She was born December 4, 1941, in Carter County, Kentucky, a daughter of the late Chalmer and Mable Lillian Clark Sagraves.

Janice was a member of the Pleasant Valley Church and enjoyed playing the piano, singing, shopping, sitting on her porch and watching QVC. She graduated from Olive Hill High School and attended Morehead State University. Janice's children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandson were her world. Anyone who entered her home may have entered as a stranger, but always left as family, with a full belly. Janice loved to cook but her greatest enjoyment was watching others enjoy the food she prepared.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 36 years, James E. Jones; one brother, Wendall Sagraves; and one sister, Iris Sue Sagraves. She is finally back in the arms of her one true love after 23 years of longing to be reunited.

Janice is survived by two sons, Edward Jones (Debbie) and Eric Jones (Renee) all of Olive Hill, Kentucky; two daughters, Jami Jones Hollingsworth and Jana Jones McGlone (Jeff) all of Olive Hill, Kentucky; eight grandchildren, Morgan McGlone, Mack McGlone, Seth Hollingsworth, Josh Hollingsworth, Derrick Jones, Steffan Jones, Becky Jones Martin and Travis Yates; 10 great-grandchildren, Zander Hollingsworth, Kholee Hollingsworth, Mia Jones, Max Jones, Joshlyn Hollingsworth, Nathan Hollingsworth, Lexi Bradford, Lyndsey Wilkes, Sydnee Yates and Whitnee Yates; one great-great-grandson, Brylan Bradford; one sister, Marla Kaye Tackett of Olive Hill, Kentucky; and three sisters-in-law, Norma Jewell Porter Anderson, Ruth Ann Baker and Roberta Stone all of Olive Hill, Kentucky. She also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at the Pleasant Valley Church in Olive Hill, Kentucky with Brother David Rayburn, her son, Pastor Edward Jones and Brother Kyle Burchett officiating. Burial will follow in the Clark Cemetery in Olive Hill, Kentucky.
