Ivy Lillian Jones


Ivy Lillian Jones, of Webster New York, was born October 30, 1921 in London, England, and died on September 18, 2013 at the age of 91.  Ivy was predeceased by her parents, William and Annie Hart, husband, Arndt Jones, and grandson, Bryan Halstead.  She is survived by her sister, Pamela Kennedy, her children, Carol Manning, and Rodney (Gale) Jones, grandchildren, Marc (Patty) Halstead, Lindsay (Michael) Leaty, and Carol Roselle, great grandchildren, Leaha Eidman, Jacob and Christopher Halstead, Kayla Halstead, and Alyssa and Austin Leaty, special nieces and nephews, Deborah Kennedy, Leland (Kim) Kennedy, Lisa, Nicholas, and Anthony Liberti, and many dear friends.

Ivy served in the British Land Army during WWII, and came to the United States in 1947.  She was a member of the Eastern Star.  Some of her hobbies were, knitting, crocheting, and poetry.  She enjoyed cooking, playing Scrabble, and listening to audio books.  Ivy never turned down an outing with family, neighbors and friends, especially ‘The Salt Road Gang’.  She loved to travel, and was known to pack a bag, and hit the road on a moments notice.
The family wishes to thank all those who assisted her in recent years.  Special thanks to Rochester General Hospital Acute Stroke Unit, The Visiting Nurse Service, and The Leo Center for Caring @ St. Ann’s Community for their excellent care and genuine compassion for Ivy, and her family.  Please consider donating to these organizations in lieu of flowers.

    It was always a pleasure to be in Ivy’s company. And she always loved being in the company of my husband, Ken Kiellach, as did he in return.
    A long life, lived “her way.”
    With deepest sympathy,

    I loved Ivy. I will miss her and miss our times at Gus’. We also did some shopping. I will not miss the day, I left my keys in the car with the window open. Ivy enjoyed that very much and laughed.

    I knew Ivy as a neighbor, and she was a generous and caring person. Christine Baker and I took Ivy out to eat and run around town a bit on August 23rd, and she really enjoyed the outing. We will all miss her.

    Ivy was a very special part of my family and she will always be missed. I was just a little girl when the “Salt Road Gang” formed and it has lasted many many years. It is certainly something very special when friends can stay in touch for so many years and continue to get together in their later years. I know that Ivy was a very special person in my parents life. I will always remember how she would talk about her grandchildren, especially Leaha, who she always compared to my daughter, Summer. I will always keep the beautiful afghans she made for us and will always remember her smile and stories. She was a very special lady and I am so glad I had the privilige to know her.

    Ivy was a great lady. Her upbeat demeanor and smile could warm anyone’s heart. Ivy’s visits to Hegedorn’s were always a bright spot in my day! Rest in peace, Ivy and God Bless.

    So happy my kids got to share so many great memories with their Nini as I did growing up. They sent a balloon up- hope it made it 😉

    A very heartfelt condolence to Rod, Carol, Pam and all of Iv’s family………….I feel that I also was family. I loved my dear Ivy very much and have missed seeing her over the last few years when we did not manage to have that get-together……….we were never out of touch, though, through cards and phone conversations. We shared a great friendship through the years……..had many wonderful times and laughs together. I will never forget her as the unique lady she was!!! She knows my love is with her always and I will continue to look at the many pictures that I have of her to remember the good times.

    I was Ivy’s Avon lady and friend for many years. Me and my husband, Carl are going to miss all our long conversations with Ivy. She was a very smart woman, with a lot of interesting stories to. tell. We would love to make it on Saturday, but unfortunately we are unable to, as we won’t have a vehicle on that day. Ivy will be greatly missed.

    Ivy was one in a million. The very essence of a proper English lady. I’ve been so blessed having her apart of my life and my family’s life. She meant the world to me. So many wonderful memories I will cherish forever. She will be severly missed. Our sincere condolences to the whole family.
    Sincerly, the Lindenhovius family
