Deloris “Lo” Jones Graves, 92, of Speedwell, TN, passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior on Monday, December 11, 2017 at her home. She was born on September 10, 1925 in Speedwell, to the late Matt and Eveloyne Bryant Jones. Saved at an early age, she was a dedicated Christian all her life and a prayer warrior for the sick, for friends, our nation and its leaders, and especially her family. She loved the Lord with all her heart, witnessed for Him, talked with Him and sang his praises every day. She loved her church, Pine Grove Baptist and was one of two remaining charter members. We will miss you mom and mamaw.
