She was preceded in death by her parents Tony and Lucille Kauchick of Coker, Ala. Survivors include her husband, Joe Jones of Northport, Ala.; daughters, Annette Jones Sherrill (Marc) of Northport, Ala. and Michelle Jones Fortenberry (Brian) of Coker, Ala.; sister, Nancy Kauchick Norris (Mike) of Cumming, Ga.; and grandchildren, Collin Sherrill (Katie Hammonds) Libby Sherrill, Camryn Sherrill, Copeland Sherrill, Marlee Sherrill, and Bailey Sherrill, all of Northport, Ala., Andrew Fortenberry (Brittany Jones) and Anthony Fortenberry of Coker, Ala. Our Gran was a woman that never met a stranger. She loved everyone. Her first love was her husband of 50 years, Joe. She served him with honor until her health declined. Then Joe stepped up and provided the most wonderful care any woman would ever want from a spouse. It was truly a beautiful display of unconditional love. Gran's next love was her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of them and made sure everyone at Hardee's on Hwy 43 North knew about them. Her family at Hardee's will have a major void without Mrs. Betty ordering her special biscuits. She also impacted many students as a substitute teacher. Many of these people cared for her the last few weeks of her life. The last three months have been tough for Gran, but she never complained. Her determination was amazing and she wanted to get better, but God wanted His precious angel in heaven with Him. She is praising her creator and is now completely healed. Gran, thank you for your love and dedication to all of us. Your family will continue your tradition of unconditional love for all. Pallbearers will be Collin and Copeland Sherrill, Andrew and Anthony Fortenberry, Mike Kauchick, Derek Jones, Luke Norris and Roy Lofton.Honorary pallbearers are DCH Northport Hospital, Dr. Stephen Browne, Grace Church, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, friends and family. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Holy Spirit Catholic Church building fund.
