Nancy Ann Jones, 73, Sheridan, passed away Saturday evening, Sept. 1, 2018 at St Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.

Born May 18,1945, she was the daughter of the late Ralph P. and Ann (Homolka) Sisul.

After graduating from Morton East H.S. in Cicero, Ill., she continued forward with her education, earning her associates degree in geriatric social work from Indiana University, eventually becoming licensed in both Indiana and Florida. Blessed with a caregiver's heart, most of her adult years were spent working with people whose bodies seemed to have turned against them, and it was in the long-term Memory Care and Alzheimer's units where she applied her gift.  Mrs. Jones helped her patients, as well as their families, navigate what can be a frustrating and emotional rollercoaster with her special way of letting everybody know that they were loved and understood, and were going to be taken care of as if they were her own family members. She would also act as the Activities Supervisor for her patients as well.

Her caring nature didn't stop when she left work; it was hardwired into her DNA. She loved rescuing animals. At one point, Mrs. Jones adopted a miniature horse named Louise. Louise currently lives at a sanctuary for horses and is the mascot for the rescue organization. This made her one extremely proud momma; and just like every other mother in existence, she had to share the news with all who would listen.

Mrs. Jones loved going to both garage sales and community festivals, especially festivals that were held in the fall. Riley Fest in Greenwood and the Festival of the Turning Leaves in Thorntown were among her favorites. She enjoyed gardening and working on crafts. She was a member of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Cicero, Ind.

Family and their activities were very important to Nancy. She was very supportive of her husband's volunteering obligations and activities. She and John T. Jones were married on July 30, 1977.

Other than her loving husband, survivors include her son, Thomas Holoubek of Rockford, Ill; four daughters, Kimberly Holoubek and Denise Hunter, both of Tennessee, Judy (Jeff) Yost of Seneca, Ill, and Beverly Michelle Jones-Anglim of Oak Lawn, Ill; six grandchildren, Kayleigh Stefanko, Sarah Holoubek, Michael Holoubek, Lauren Yost, Dylan Yost and Crystal Rosendaul; one great granddaughter, Indiana Stefanko-Andreotti; and by her loving siblings, Mark Sisul (Rick DeLeo) and Robin (Ted) Pawlowski.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Ralph C. "Skip" Sisul; and by her dogs, Abby and Woody.

A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14, 2018 at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, 410 S. Pearl Street in Cicero, Ind. Family and friends may pay their respects from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Kercheval Funeral Home in Sheridan.
