Obituary: Cheri Billingsley Jones

OCEAN RIDGE — Cheri Billingsley Jones of Ocean Ridge died March 24, six years after a breast cancer diagnosis. She was 73.
Mrs. Jones is survived by her husband, Earl Jones, her daughter Wendi (Gregg) Zukoski, her stepchildren, Jolie (Jimmy) Callus and Sam Jones, her mother, Lois Billingsley, her sisters, 8739756297?profile=RESIZE_180x180Vicki (Mike) Scruggs and Debbi (Jack) Welch, and her grandchildren Emili (Caitlyn) Zukoski and Ryan Callus.
Also surviving are six nieces and nephews and eight grandnieces and grandnephews. She was predeceased by her father, Owen T. Billingsley.
Born in Columbus, Ohio, on April 16, 1947, Mrs. Jones was raised in Delray Beach and was graduated from Seacrest High School in 1965. She worked for IBM as an executive secretary in Boca Raton until her retirement in 1988.
Mrs. Jones was a gentle yet strong woman who never failed to make those around her feel loved. She filled rooms with joy and humor and was a friend to anyone fortunate enough to meet her. Mrs. Jones will be remembered for her love of butterflies; may they always remind us of the sweet soul she was.
Per Mrs. Jones’ wishes, her ashes will be spread along her favorite coral reef, off the shore of Ocean Ridge, where she and Earl lived for the past 40 years.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
