Beverly J. (Neidigh, Curtis) Jones age 91 passed away on May 8, 2022, in Noblesville, IN.
Bev was born in March of 1931 in Charleston West Virginia and raised in Plymouth, IN where she made her home for over 65 years. Bev was involved in her church, Trinity United Methodist, where she taught Sunday school and was on the administrative board. While in Plymouth, Bev was actively involved in Tri-Kappa. Her work career consisted of a variety of positions: bank teller, physician’s office, special education aide and a secretary for the school system. In 1980, Bev was elected as the Plymouth City-Clerk Treasurer position which she held for 16 years. In this job she flourished with her strong work ethic. After retirement, Bev took a year off to do some DIY work on her home, which she enjoyed doing. She soon felt the urge to travel and began working with American Dream Tours traveling the U.S. and Canada on bus trips. Bev even opted to take a trip to the British Isles with her niece, Sharon, and a group of teachers.
In 2000, Bev rekindled a friendship with Bob Jones who became her husband the following year. Bev and Bob moved to Noblesville, IN where they made a life together blending families and meeting new friends through involvement in their church, First Presbyterian Church of Noblesville. Bev and Bob spent the first several years of their marriage traveling.
Bev loved to seasonally redecorate her home and passed this on to her daughters. She was a good seamstress and altered every piece of clothing she owned. Bev enjoyed simple things such as watching birds in her yard and working in her flower garden. She was quick witted and had a wonderful sense of humor. Laughter was always part of family gatherings in northern Indiana and Florida. Bev loved her family, and this was evident through her kindness and supportive nature. Bev loved bright colors and would want this worn at her funeral.
She is survived by her husband of 20 years, Robert Jones of Noblesville, two daughters Kathy (Patrick) Newell of Spring Lake, MI, and Susan (Bill) Shorter of Noblesville, and two siblings Robert (Jan) Neidigh of Nappanee, IN and Carol (John) Faber of Plymouth IN. She was preceded in death by many family members, and Glen Curtis whom she was married to for 27 years.
Visitation will be held on Friday, May 13, 2022 from 11-1 pm at the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan Street, Plymouth, IN 46563. Funeral services will immediately follow with Life Celebrant James Smart and Dan Faber.
Burial will take place in the New Oak Hill Cemetery, Plymouth.
The family would like to thank the nursing staff at The Lodge Assistant Living for their care and support over the past three years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Presbyterian Church of Noblesville, 1207 Conner Street, Noblesville, IN 46060 or Trinity United Methodist Church, 425 South Michigan Street, Plymouth, IN 46563.

Dear Kathy and Susan My condolences to you both. Your mother was a beautiful lady and one who kept us all in line when we needed it. I remember plenty of times coming over to your house playing together and you mom making us in the fall roasted pumkin seeds and any other kind of goodie for us. Anyway I wish I could be there Friday but I will be having foot surgery done at that time. Just want you both to know I love you and my thoughts are with you both. Love you my friends!

Kathy & Susan & families:
You have my condolences on the loss of your mother. Living across from my parents on Elliott Ave. I spoke to your mother often and of course her involvement at Trinity Church was another regular interaction.
Your Dad gave me my 1st haircut (I have a photo) 70+ years ago & I stayed with him until we moved from Plymouth.
In sum, many happy memories when I think of both your parents.
