Barbara Jean Stoker Jones completed her earthly journey on May 21, 2017, and was welcomed into the arms of her Loving Savior, and greeted by loving family and friends. She began her journey on August 15, 1930, in Milford, Beaver County, Utah, with her parents - Owen W. Stoker and Lenna (Billie) Stewart Stoker Osborne. She spent her early childhood in Milford, Utah. She met her first love and eternal companion, Daniel Frank Jones, in the 3rd grade.

The economy led her family to move to Santa Monica, California, where she spent several years, including junior high. Her family returned to Milford, Utah, where she attended Milford High School. She was a scholar, cheerleader, and valedictorian of her graduating class.

She married her sweetheart, Daniel Frank Jones on May 31st, 1948. Their marriage was later solemnized in the St George Temple on December 17th, 1949.

They raised their family in Springville, Utah.

Strangers, friends and her beloved family were the recipients of her talents, kindness, and service. She served in the LDS church in Relief Society, Primary, Young Women’s and Sunday School callings. She served an LDS mission to the Winnepeg, Canada Mission as a Senior Sister Missionary in January 1995 - January 1996.

She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, quilting, sewing and most of all being with her family.

She is survived by Michael D. (Susan) Jones, Linda E. (Joe) Smith, Shauna L. (Dave) Summers, Logan (Ashley) Jones, Ashtyn (Travis) Byron, Bailey (Chandler) Wright, 15 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren, her brothers Gerald W.
