SCIO – Cindy Lou Jones, 66, passed away on Wednesday (August 18, 2021) at Jones Memorial Hospital following a lengthy illness.
Mrs. Jones was born on August 11, 1955 in Hornell to Lawrence A. and Grace H. (Barrett) Horton. She was a 1974 graduate of Wellsville Central School. On May 16, 1998, at the Canton Center Grange Hall, she married Daniel T. Jones, who survives.
Cindy worked as a Dietary Counselor for Founders Pavilion in Corning from 1975 until 1990 when she left to take a position as an Employment Counselor for ARC in Corning, retiring in 1998.

Cindy loved her family dearly. She was the contact person that coordinated all the family get-togethers. She was like a mother to all of her nieces and nephews, often caring for them and allowing them to live with her from time to time.
Cindy cherished her husband’s family as well. On weekends, they often made the trip to spend time with Daniel’s parents at their home or Hejamada Campground in Auburn, where they shared memories around the campfire.
Cindy was a huge Elvis fan. She loved his music. She enjoyed watching movies at home with her husband and playing cards with her friends. It was during a euchre game that she first met her husband to be. Cindy also took great pride in her frog collection. She had ceramic frogs, wood frogs, metal frogs and frogs of all shapes, sizes and colors.
Cindy was a member of the Salvation Army in Wellsville where she played and taught tambourine.
