Ruth B. Jones, affectionately known as Roo Roo, left us, surrounded by her friends and family, on January 26, 2024, at the age of 71 from natural causes. She was the daughter of the late John W Burch and Lillie Warren Burch.
She is survived by her husband of 44 years Tom Jones, two children Chris Jones (Brynn) and Ashley Barbee and, most importantly, by her five grandchildren, Owen Jones, Bode Jones, Crawford Barbee, Warren Barbee and her little princess Elowyn Ruth Barbee. She is also survived by her siblings Sharon Kent, Judy Rice, Linda Burch, Mike Burch (Terry), Cathy Pecor (Bob), and Jody Burch (Barbara) as well as her many beloved nieces and nephews.
Ruth lived a life of love, service and caring. She was known for her love of flowers as well as her cakes which she gladly made with love for anyone who asked. Her charitable heart was most filled during the holiday season by packing shoe boxes for children, donating to church food pantries, and adopting local families through Christmas Cheer.
Ruth’s generous nature was only surpassed by her love of her family. Nothing brought her more joy than being surrounded by her family and loved ones as often as possible.
The family asks for donations to: Christmas Cheer of Alamance County, Alamance County Meals on Wheels and the American Cancer Society to honor her life. Ruth liked to spread joy and happiness by giving to others, so per her wishes, no funeral or memorial service will be held.
