Anita Belle Jones, of Prairie Grove, passed away on Tuesday, March 7th, 2023 at 72 years old. She was born August 26th, 1950, in Missouri to Willis and Earlene (Schaefer) Jones. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Judy Thompson and her husband Frank Seward.
Anita will always be remembered for her many talents. She was very artistic. She did woodworking, crocheting, drew caricatures, painted, anything folk or abstract. She could be found anywhere using her hands and creating magic.
She was not only skilled with a paintbrush, but with her hands in the dirt as well. She gardened vegetables, and grew many flowers; hollyhocks, and peonies being some of her favorites.
She was a lover of rock 'N' roll music, old cars and antiques. She believed in Jesus and the supernatural as well.
She worked many jobs over the course of her life, one of which was a semi-truck driver across the US.
She was very proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
She had the biggest heart and was always surrounded by friends or creatures.
She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Anita is survived by her fiancé Johnnie McDonald; sister Virginia Stewart and her husband Harvey; sister Joyce Donahoe and husband Mike; daughter Cheri Shepley and husband Chris; son Alex Seward; step-son Jeremy McDonald; step-daughter Jessica McDonald; step-son Matthew McDonald; granddaughter Jordan Cash and husband Elijah; grandson Cameron Clark and fiancé Madelyne; great-grandchildren Paisleah, Brooks, Bailah, Aly, Sloan, Blake, James and Riverlyn; and many other family members, nieces, nephews, cousins, and loved ones.
