Yvette L. Jones, daughter of Norman and Peggy Jones, was born July 9, 1960, in Wilmington, Delaware. She peacefully departed this life on July 13, 2020 at home.
"Betty” as she was affectionately known, received her early education in the Public Schools of Wilmington, Delaware, and graduated from P. S. DuPont High School in 1978.
Early on she took an interest in the Health Care Field as she had a passion for taking care of others. At the time of Betty’s passing, she was employed by Christiana Care Health Systems as a Patient Care Tech for the past 21 years, doing what she loved.
She enjoyed playing cards, shopping, traveling, and socializing. Betty was well known for being the life of the party. Her bold fashion statements would steal the room as soon as she entered!
More than anything, Betty loved spending time with her girls, loving companion, and grandchildren. She was big on family unity and was adamant about providing for and protecting them. She would quickly let you know not to come for any of them with one of her sassy catchphrases, ”That’s Mine” or ”That has my name on it!”.
Betty was predeceased by her parents, Norman and Peggy Jones; siblings, Annie Pearl Jones, Tracey Wallace, Charles Zimmerman, and Norman Jones.
She leaves to cherish many precious memories, her loving twin daughters, Lakisha and Nakisha Jones; son, Bulah Jones; grandchildren, Kiera Jones, Donminique Melton, Kyron Jones, and Khadijah Caaquet; great-grandson, TajMire Melton; loving companion, Robert Brown; siblings, Eloise Walker (David), Mary Jones, Sandra Matthews, Glay Jones, Walter Jones (Patricia), Renee Jones and Reginald Jones and a host of other family and friends.
Funeral 11 am Wed., July 22, 2020 at Congo Legacy Center, 501 West 28th Street, Wilmington, DE 19802. There will be a viewing from 9 am until 10:45 am only. Her burial will be held privately.
