Mrs. Mary Jo Wilson, 84 of Rochester

Mrs. Mary Jo Wilson, 84 of Rochester, the wife and best friend of James Cary (Jay) Wilson, passed away at Woodlawn Hospital, 9:40 am Saturday, January 27, 2024, after a serious fall.

Born January 2, 1940, Burket, Indiana, and was the cherished daughter of Elgie and Velma Nelson Vandermark.  Growing up, she shared her childhood with her brother Lyle on a chicken farm in Talma, IN.   With great Tiger pride she graduated with the class of 1958 where she played the coronet in the band. 

Mary Jo continued her formal education at Nashville's David Lipscomb University where she majored in home economics.

On September 17, 1960, Mary Jo married Jay Wilson, at Rochester's Church of Christ.  They enjoyed over 63 years of marriage with highlights of park explorations, vacations in Florida, and serving their church, community, and those around them, but mostly cherished time with their children: Stephen, Joel, Alisa and Julie, as well as their grands and great-grands.

Mary Jo loved her Lord while serving and loving her church family at the Church of Christ for over six decades.  As the wife of a preacher and elder, she faithfully dedicated her life to ministering and caring for others by Jay’s side.

In the early years, Mary Jo shared her passion for reading as a librarian at the Fulton County Library and drove the Fulton County Library's Bookmobile.  She loved her flowers, whether planted at her home or decorated throughout her home, adding color to her world. She enjoyed sewing and quilting, making many gifts of love for her family and friends.  Mary Jo was also an excellent cook and baker, sharing her culinary treats with her family, church and friends.  Mary Jo enjoyed reading, putting puzzles together and watching Wheel of Fortune, but nothing thrilled her more than getting together with her family and making memories with them.

Mary Jo will be lovingly remembered by her husband Jay, 4 children: Stephen J. Wilson (Penny) of Syracuse, Joel Duane Wilson (Elizabeth) of Mentone, Alisa Brackney (David) of Burton, MI and Julie Piazza (Pete) Clarkston, MI;  19 Grandchildren Jay Cary (Ally) Wilson, Joanna Weimer (Logan),  Estella Calloway (Shaun),  Rachel Ransbottom (Darren), Rebecca Wilson, Mary Baughman (Zach), Isabella Ault (Ayden), Janelle Wilson,  Gabby  Helvey (Matthew),  Jeremiah Wilson, David Wilson (Meshell), Isaiah Wilson, Jucinda Wilson, Katelyn Brackney, Leneigh Laster (Anthony), Hannah Sanders (Matt), Grace Brackney, Caryann Piazza, Mitchell Piazza; and 15 great-grandchildren.

Kevin K. "Corky" Jones, 68, of Rochester

Mr. Kevin K. "Corky" Jones, 68, of Rochester, was surrounded by his loving family when he passed away peacefully on January 12, 2024.  This followed a valiant 6-year battle with cancer.

On January 26, 1955, Kevin Korby Jones was born.  He was a treasured son of Francis and Marilyn Taylor Jones.  Growing up he shared his childhood with a brother Chuck and two sisters, Christine and Candace.  During his high school years at Rochester, he was a defensive linebacker and kicker for the Zebras football team. Corky graduated from RHS with the class of 1973.  He was also a member of the Rochester Cement Products Men's Softball Team, a team of dynamic force who dominated the area men's softball league.

After a courtship that was initiated in 2003, Corky married Connie Ringle on October 13, 2011.  They have shared over 20 years of life's adventures.

With a strong work ethic, Corky worked for Walmart as their flooring maintenance chief  for two decades from 1989 - 2009. An American Sportsman, Corky hunted in his earlier days.  With a great passion for fishing, Corky deployed his ambitions anywhere there was water.  Most commonly he was found on the lakes of Fulton and Kosciusko Counties fishing for the limit of blue gill, crappie and bass.  Oh yes, and when the ice began to cover the lake there was nothing better than dropping his line to hook some ice-cold fish.  Corky also fished for tuna off the coast of Delaware, and other saltwater delicacies from the Gulf of Mexico when deep sea fishing.  He also enjoyed getting together with family and friends to play some spirited rounds of poker.

A huge milestone, for a man of strong faith and great determination was his accomplishment of sobriety for 33-years.  He lamented more than once that nothing would taste better than an ice-cold beer, but with strong will never yielded to temptation. 

Left to cherish Corky's memory are his wife Connie at home; son Casey Porter Jones of Rochester; grandson Kevin Bryan Jones; two sisters: Christine Hooker and Candice Jones both of Rochester; his step-daughters Jennifer Ringle of Rochester and Joanna Conrad of Logansport; nieces and nephews; and his canine companion Harley, the black Poodle.

A celebration of the life of Mr. Kevin "Corky" Jones will be at 11:00 AM, Wednesday, January 17, 2024, in the Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 West 18th Street, Rochester.  Pastor Kathy Nelson and Pastor Mandy Nellans will officiate.  

His family will receive friends on Tuesday from 5:00 - 7:00 PM and Wednesday an hour prior to his service.  

Memorials in lieu of flowers may be made to The Fulton County Cancer Fund thru the Northern Indiana Community Foundation, 217 East 9th Street, Rochester, IN  46975.
