Veronica Winnegan Jones

February 15, 1949 — September 3, 2022

On September 3, 2022, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend received her heavenly wings. Our family's matriarch, Veronica W. Jones, affectionately known as "Pig" or "Ronnie" was born on Tuesday, February 15, 1949 in Whitaker Memorial Hospital, Newport News, Virginia to the late Vernon and Caroline Winnegan. Veronica was educated in Surry County Public Schools and employed with Smithfield Packing Company (currently known as Smithfield Foods) for nearly 30 years. Due to her love of cooking, after her retirement, she worked part-time jobs cooking at Monette's, Kid's Come First, Hampton Inn and Westside Elementary School. Veronica was baptized and joined First Gravel Hill, Rushmere, Virginia at an early age. After her union to Deacon Edward Jones, she then joined Jones Grove Baptist Church, Windsor, Virginia. She later moved her membership to Emmanuel Baptist Church where she worshipped until her passing. Veronica was a ray of sunshine and always upbeat. She loved getting everyone together to eat. She enjoyed cooking her infamous lemon pound cakes, sweet potato jacks, coconut pies, potato salad and let’s not forget her macaroni and cheese that made you kiss the cook. Her kitchen was always open to anyone who was hungry and you left very satisfied. Thanksgiving and Labor Day weekends were her favorite times of the year where she would host huge family gatherings just to feed her family. There was never a dull moment at "Pig's" house. Her favorite past time was planning bus trips for family and friends. Later in her golden years, she enjoyed bus trips traveling to various casinos. She also loved dancing to her oldies but goodies and you could find her everyday at 12:30 sharp sitting in front of her TV watching Victor Newman on the Young and the Restless. Along with her parents, Veronica was welcomed into heaven by her brother, Raymond "Keedy" Winnegan, nephew, Andre` "Pookie" Wilson and niece LaToya "Boo Boo" Winnegan. Veronica leaves to continue her legacy her husband Deacon Edward Jones. Her "four Jones';" Angela Williams (Robert), Melody Jones, Stacy Jones, Patricia Evans all of Smithfield, Virginia; grandchildren Brittainy Jones-Darden (Derreck), Brianna Jones, Alonzo Evans, Brandon Jones, Braxton Williams (Treena), Carrington Evans, Christopher Hall and Quincy Williams; great-grands Chandler Jones, Chanel Darden, Malayasia Darden, Julius Jones and Elijah Scott; bonus grandchildren Robert J.
