Mary Helen Pruden Jones, 87, passed away on July 27, 2019, at Brooklyn Hall Personal Care Home in Mathiston, MS. Helen was born on May 4, 1932, in Choctaw County, MS. She was a member of Antioch United Methodist Church (currently Antioch Community Church) where she was a vital part of the congregation that she loved. Her family was well loved and cherished as evidenced by the true homemaker that she was, as well as the various jobs over the years that helped support her family that she lovingly took care of. In later years her joy was in the art of quilting as she gifted family, friends, and acquaintances with her handiwork.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas E. Jones; parents, William Ed and Lillie Mae Pruden; brothers, Amos Pruden, Floyd Pruden, Sylvester Pruden, Cloyce Pruden, and Fred Pruden.
