Obituary for Bonita Newton Jones

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9

Bonita Newton Jones, age 71, of Amelia, Virginia departed this life on Tuesday, July 25, 2023. The Lord dispatched angels of mercy to the Bon Secours Hospice House in North Chesterfield, Virginia to escort her to a heavenly mansion. Bonnie (as affectionately known by most of her family) was born September 17, 1951 in Amelia, Virginia to Dorothy Monroe Sheff and the late Robert Lee Sheff Sr.

At an early age, Bonita accepted Christ and joined the Chester Grove Baptist Church. She was always willing to help serve food and clean when asked.

Bonita graduated from the Russell Grove High School in Amelia, Virginia. She was united in holy matrimony to the late Paige Arthur Jones on June 6, 1970. From this union, one child, Angela Jones Logan was born.

Her other occupations included a factory worker at the former GBC of Amelia, VA, and a teacher’s aide at the Amelia County Public School system. In her spare time, Bonita enjoyed gardening, cooking and baking, and spending time with family.
