Diane Jones

February 22, 1954 ~ November 9, 2021 (age 67)


Diane Kathleen Jones, 67, died unexpectedly at home on November 9, 2021. On February 22, 1954, she was born in Farmington, Maine, to Sylvia B. Wright and Woodrow Wright, who both preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her husband, James (Jimmy) Jones, and her sister, Judy L. Crawford.

Diane lived in Rangeley, Maine, until the age of five and then moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan. She attended Pioneer High School and attended some college. She worked for over 25 years at Edwards Brothers, running book presses and training others to print on binders. Diane met Jimmy Jones, the love of her life, and after their marriage, they moved to Dunn, North Carolina, so Diane could help Edwards Brothers set up a new plant.

Anyone who knew Diane could tell she had a big heart. She was always looking out for the underdog and cared a lot about others. Her love of animals was evident. As a young child, Diane would bring home strays (along with her other siblings,) and not much time would go by without someone bringing home a cat, dog, or animal of some sort.

Diane is survived by her older brother, David Wright; sisters, Debra Wright, Donna Dalian, Cheryl Wright, and multiple nieces and nephews, including Brian Snyder, who was very close to Diane. A service commemorating Diane’s life will be held in Michigan at a later date. Please make a donation in Diane’s honor to your local animal shelter if you are so inclined.
