CLAUDE IVOR JONES

Claude Ivor Jones spent his final day with family by his side and passed away peacefully on November 5, 2021. Claude was born in Winnipeg on October 24, 1943 and raised in Charleswood. Claude made his home in Brandon, until he moved to Selkirk to be near family.
Claude was predeceased by his wife Dawn, his mother and father, Dorothy and Ivor; and sister-in-law Sharon. Left to mourn his passing are his children, John and Robyn (Rob); brothers, Christian (Terry) and Mark; and special friend Renee; brothers-in-law, Bill (Vivian) and Graham; sister-in-law Bev Gray; and nephews, Matthew (Allison), Brett, Sheldon, Kaitlyn, Marshall, Clayton (Nicole) and Randy (Syna).
Claude was an avid sportsman playing hockey, baseball and curling. He was even a champion shuffle board player, but it was golf that was his true passion. Claude divided his time golfing in Brandon all summer and Yuma, Arizona all winter. He scored a Hole in One twice! Claude won Silver in the Arizona Senior Games for golf in his age group. In addition, to playing several sports Claude found time to give back as a coach and volunteer. He coached flag football and a women's baseball team, called the "Jones Girls" that included several of his relatives. He also volunteered at the World Curling Championships when they were held in Brandon.
In his later years, Claude was member of the Selkirk Legion and the Over 60s Club. He enjoyed attending performances of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Manitoba Theatre Centre and Selkirk Steeler games.
In addition to sports, Claude enjoyed travelling. Whether it was a submarine ride in Maui, a bus tour of Ireland or a trolley ride in Toronto. Claude was always up for an adventure.
A big thank you all of Claude's caregivers at Woodland Court, River Ridge, Oakview Place, and Dr. Brown for helping to make his last years productive and enjoyable.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Claude's memory to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • On behalf of all the caregivers that had the honour of taking care of your father we would like to express our deepest condolences to Mr. Jones family. He will be missed for his smile and nod when asked a question. Mr. Jones and I spent time together going for walks in the garden, through the facility and getting involved with activities which he enjoyed. May he Rest In Peaceā€¦God Bless. - Posted by: Sherry Zayik (HCA) on: Dec 07, 2021

  • Yesterday I happened to think how happy I was when Claude Jones chose me to be on his touch football team at Dieppe School in September of 1959, and how he was always a friendly guy in Charleswood. This morning I read his obituary. I hope the many happy memories cherished by his friends and family will be a comfort to them now and in the coming years.
