1926 - 2019

Wally Jones passed away on July 14, 2019. He was born in Winnipeg in 1926, the sixth of seven children to Herbert and Jennie (Jane Ann) Jones.
He was predeceased by siblings, Cyril, Herbie, Gary, Nora, and Doreen.
His sister Hazel resides in Burlington, Ontario.
Wally was a lifelong Manitoban. His happiest years were spent in Grand Marais - hosting parties with Dorothy and pitching shoes. His early working years were spent in sales where his winning personality meant he always did well. He eventually owned his own business, and worked hard to become successful. Wally enjoyed his retirement years…with Dorothy always by his side. They travelled from time to time but were quite content to sit together and enjoy a Jets game.
Wally was predeceased by his daughter Sandy, son-in-law Bob Shipley and lifelong friend Charlie Sabo.
He will be forever loved and missed by his wife of over 70 years, Dorothy. He will always be dear to the hearts of his daughter Brenda, his grandchildren, Kimberly (Evald), Jamie (Pia), Tyler and Vanessa (Jonathan). Gavin and Chris Shipley, along with their families, will remember many happy times spent with Wally. His great-grandchildren, Anders (Katerina), Soren, Ulla and Astrid will think of him fondly. Wally's nieces, nephews and their families will always carry warm memories of him and we thank them for keeping in touch over the years.
There will be no service at this time and flowers are gratefully declined. If you find yourself beside the lake…skip a stone for Wally.
Cremation has taken place. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
