Obituary for Merril L Jones

Merril L.Jones, age 86 of Clinton, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018 at Truman Lake Manor of Lowry City, MO.

Merril was born September 2, 1931 to David E. Jones and Daisy “McMillian” Jones of Lowry City, MO.

To this union three children were born Steve, Scott and Nancy. Merril entered the sheet metal trade becoming a member of the Sheet Metal Workers Union.
