Mary and Ray Jones
Submitted by Son, Steve Jones
I’d like to nominate both my parents, Mary and Ray Jones for a couple of reasons. Separately, I want to honor my mom, Mary, because she raised seven children with happiness, patience and love. She was the most positive person I knew, always smiling no matter the circumstances, and left a legacy of joy that touches our family and the whole community. My father is also my living legend because he was a true entrepreneur that taught me to work hard, think on my feet and chase opportunity. I loved that I first learned about business by working with my dad. There is one more piece of the pie that makes my parents “my living legends” and that is their love for one another. They have been married for almost 60 years and supported each other and their children the whole time. That kind of commitment in itself is legendary to me!
