“It’s been a long day without you, my friend. And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. We’ve come a long way from where we began. Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. When I see you again…”
Marian Jones, 68, of Patterson Twp., passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, September 1, 2017, in Good Samaritan Hospice.
Born February 6, 1949, in Beaver Falls, she was the daughter of the late Harry F. and Ann (Capan) Guy.
She will be sadly missed by her loving husband of 48 years, Daniel A. Jones; her two sons and daughters-in-law, Brian and Renee Jones of Stewartsville, N.J. and Bradley and Tara Jones of Beaver Falls, and her two grandchildren, Amanda and Bennett Jones.
She is survived by her Aunt Mary Delach (95 years of Austintown, Ohio) and many cousins, nieces and nephews whom she loved spending time with whenever she could.
Marian was a life force unlike many others. She impacted everyone she met with her amazing spirit, infectious laugh, beautiful smile and heart big enough to reach anyone who needed it.
Marian was a mom who never missed a moment of her boy’s activities. If not found watching every football, basketball or baseball game, you would find her running the Little Cougar Football Organization or volunteering as a Football Mother. Marian brought her warm, giving personality to many jobs; leaving her mark at Foodland as a baker, Blackhawk School District as a cafeteria worker, as the first line of defense as a TSA Agent and finally as a school board member for Blackhawk. Marian supported the entire Beaver Falls community and found joy attending every event she could. You could always find Marian with the music turned up loud as she cleaned the house, sang along in the car or danced the night away listening to her favorite band, The Davisson Brothers. Lady luck found Marian many times while playing her favorite machine at Mountaineer. Marian lived large. She bled orange and black, green and gold and blue and white. She was the instigator of impromptu parties, initiated conversations with anyone she met, always cracked jokes and made all feel welcome and loved. She was an instant friend.
Friends will be received on Monday from noon to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. and Tuesday from 1 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. in the GABAUER-LUTTON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, INC., 117 Blackhawk Road, Chippewa Twp., gabauerfamilyfuneralhomes.com, where prayers will be held on Wednesday at 9:20 a.m. followed by a mass of Christian burial at 10 a.m. at St. Monica’s-Chippewa Site. Father Kim Schreck will officiate.
Interment will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery, New Brighton.

The family would like to thank the entire community who have sent their thoughts and prayers and for the tribute to Marian at the Friday night football game. She was there in spirit and always will be

So sorry to hear the bad news. I know it's really hard right now but down the road you will only remember that "ear to ear" grin and laughter that the rest of us saw any time we ran into her. The Blackhawk community was so fortunate to have her serve us with her level-headed approach to the future of our district. That will be truly missed.
I said a prayer for you today. It hurts so much to have a loved one move on before us.
When in high school I would watch Dan and Marian walking together, laughing and holding hands--I can picture it as though it were yesterday. Years later we ran into each other and I was blessed to see them together and hear about the lives they shared. Memories are a gift from God and I pray you will experience peace during this time in your life.
God bless you always and in all ways! Love, Sherie
on the loss of your loved one.

Your are in our hearts and prayers. May your memories bring you comfort today and always. We enjoyed many Friday nights together watching Blackhawk football and going out to eat after the game. Also all the Little Cougar games. Marion was a very special lady and will be missed by all who knew her. Bill & Sharon
