Yasuko Jones, 85, of Abilene, TX, went to be with The Lord surrounded by her family on June 5, 2019, at Hendrick Hospice Care in Abilene.
Visitation will be from 6-7 pm on Sunday, June 9, at North’s Funeral Home, 242 Orange St, Abilene, TX 79601.
Interment at the Abilene Veteran’s Cemetery on June 10 at 10 am. Memorial service to follow at 11 am at Belmont Baptist Church, 2117 Palm St, Abilene, TX.
Born on March 25, 1934, to Masao and Tome Sakurai in Sapporo, Japan, Yasuko means “Peaceful Child.” She married Dale R. Jones on June 29, 1960. She was a baker for public schools but most enjoyed serving her church by preparing food for youth and the congregation. Her hobbies included Japanese food preparation, Japanese script writing, bowling, and ceramics. She loved her garden of roses and fruit trees. She spent countless hours immersed in charitable and religious volunteer work including the Abilene Baptist Association food pantry. In recent years, she most enjoyed her time with great grandchildren Brody and Emiko in Abilene.
She is survived by her husband Dale R. Jones of Abilene, Texas; sons Dale R. Jones, Jr. (Gina) of Borrego Springs, California, and William D. Jones (Tara) of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; grandson William D. Jones, II (Sarah) of Abilene, Texas; great-grandchildren Broderick Revedy Jones and Emiko Graciana Jones of Abilene, Texas, and Lyndon Ryan Killgo of Oklahoma City.
Yasuko is preceded in death by her beloved sister, Keiko Ludwig.

Peggy and I have many precious memories of Yasuko. She was a wonderful lady with a loving, Christian heart. Peggy loved cooking with Yasuko in the church kitchen, and I enjoyed being with my long-time friend Dale. Yasuko's wontons were always delicious. Her face would always light up when she held a baby; she was a wonderful mother and grandmother. I loved to see her smile and hear her laugh while Dale and I drank coffee and solved the world's problems. Even though the Lord has taken her home, He has left us with a gift of memories in exchange.
