Maxine Anne (Welch) Jones

December 1, 1933 — January 2, 2023

Overland Park, Kansas

Maxine Anne Jones, 89, of Overland Park, Kansas passed away Monday, January 2, 2023 at St. Luke’s South Hospital.

Although she was cremated, Visitation with family will be January 28th at 1:00, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 5325 Nieman Rd., Shawnee, KS with a Memorial Service starting at 2:00pm at the church.

Maxine was born December 1, 1933 to Roltz and Mildred Laverna (Hayes) Welch in Newkirk, Oklahoma.

She attended Wichita East High School and Wichita State University and had various secretarial and office assistant jobs, but her most important job was that of a loving and wise Mom, Grandma and GiGi to all her kids, grandchildren and great grands.  She was a woman of faith and passed that faith on to all of her family.  She also hosted so many memorable family dinners for every special occasion, and never missed a chance to connect people together.  She was incredibly good at making friends, and taking care of friends, even into her last years.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband of 65 years, Warren “Mike” Jones, and her brother, Gary Welch.

Survivors include her children, Tim (Clareen) Jones, Terry (Ralinn) Jones, Judy (Dave) Fogleman, and Susan (Chuck) Thomas; 10 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren, with 2 on the way, and she loved and kept up with them all!  Maxine's family will greatly miss her, but look forward to seeing her spunky self in heaven, where she's probably already hosting a party.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Shawnee, KS.
