Erica Lauren Jones, 23, of Shawsville, went home to the Lord on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017.
She was known for her artistic talent playing the piano, clarinet and violin as well as her career as a cosmetologist. She was well-travelled, having lived in Minnesota, North Carolina, Illinois and Indiana but she always considered her home the mountains of Virginia.
Her greatest gift was making everyone she met feel like a true friend.
Her loving family includes her mother, Melissa (John) Foster; her father, Brian (Ginger) Jones; siblings, Isaac Jones and step-sister, Caitlin Foster; grandparents, Mary (Bill) Pleasants, Shirley and Clayton Jones; aunts and uncles, Brent and Deana Jones, Timmy and Drema Foster, Margaret and Allen Sisson; and cousins, J.T. Foster, Christopher, Adam, Kendall and Scarlett Sisson.
She also leaves behind numerous friends and communities in love with her infectious smile and personality.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, David Foster; her aunt, Kim Jones; uncle, Michael Foster and great-grandparents, Isley and Bessie Jones, Raymond and Frannie McMillan, Ernest and Gertrude Willis, and Clinton and Ruby Foster.
Funeral services were held at Crockett Spring United Methodist Church in Shawsville at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 with burial at Piedmont Cemetery in Shawsville.
