Eva Lee Jones, 88, of Springdale went to be with the Lord October 21, 2017. She was born March 18, 1929 in Kingston, Arkansas, the daughter of the late William and Minnie Cook Norris.
Eva Lee (Mamaw) was a gentle, kind, quiet woman of great faith in Jesus. She grew up in Kingston, AR in a tiny house filled with a big love with her mom and dad and brother, Dale. She was married to her first and only love, Charlie, for 70 years. Her life's goal was to do whatever she needed to do to meet the needs of her husband and 3 kids. She had a passion for studying God's Word and following Jesus. It taught her how to have peace, and to love and serve others.
Her children feel blessed that God allowed Eva Lee to be their mother. No matter what they did she loved them unconditionally. She made sure they knew she was always there for them in any situation. She also had a huge heart of love for her grandchildren, and extended family members.
She specialized in being a fantastic cook, seamstress, artist and prayer warrior For many years she kept children in her home and loved them as her own.
She spent the last four years of her life living at The Maples. She loved the staff of hall 200. They pampered her and treated her like a queen. She would say each one was her favorite. The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to them for making her last years on this earth comfortable and safe.
