It is with deep sadness that the siblings of Patricia Gail Jones-Alston, 75, must advise of her passing on January 7, 2022, after a brief illness.
Born in Steeves Mountain, Pat was the first of the seven Jones children to leave this earth.
Pat loved a good game of cards, dice, yahtzee, etc. and she spent hours and hours (often in a single day) doing this with family.
Pat worked in Toronto for many years but, like Maritimers often do, she returned to her native NB.
She is predeceased by her husband, Greig Alston, and her parents, Everett and Vera (Ritchie) Jones.
Pat is survived by her siblings, Vera (Charlie) Ross of Fredericton, Wayne (Mary Anne) Jones of Victoria, BC, John (Lynda) Jones of Moncton, Gary (Léa) Jones of Boundary Creek, Debbie (Lorne) Colborne of Salisbury, and Derek (Joyce) Jones of West Gilford, ON, several nieces and nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews.
As per Pat's wishes, there will be no formal funeral service. Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). Interment at Fair Haven Memorial Gardens at a later date.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Oncology wing of the Moncton Hospital for their kindness and compassion.
If desired, memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
