Obituary for Helen Arietta Jones (Snyder)

Helen Arietta  Jones (Snyder)

She was an active church member throughout her life serving as a Sunday School teacher, working in the Bus Outreach Ministry and holding various offices in the Ladies Ministry.

Helen never lost her sense of adventure, in her 80’s she rode the parachute drop at an amusement park in Florida, and she loved it.

She is survived by a daughter, Debbie A. Betsworth and her husband, Edward of North Carolina; two step-sons, Charles B. Jones, Jr. and William Jones, both of Martinsburg; a step-daughter, Penny Sue Jones, of Indiana; numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, step grandchildren, and step great grandchildren; two brothers, Curt Snyder and wife, Alice of Shenandoah Junction; and Wayne Snyder and wife, Trisha of Inwood; and a sister, Arvella R. Barr and her husband, Carl A. of Shepherdstown.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Charles Basil Jones, Sr. her first husband Lee Andrew Pancake; a son, Roger Clinton Pancake, and granddaughter, Constance Arietta Walsh.
