Helen Gnall Jones, affectionately known as “G.G.” Jones, entered into eternal rest on Monday at Regional Hospital of Scranton. Her beloved husband, Morgan, died September 29, 2009, and together they were blessed to share 56 years of marriage.
Born in Taylor, Helen was one of three children born to the late Joseph J. and Helen Kresko Gnall and was a graduate of Taylor High School Class of 1951. For many years, she was a Nurses-Aid at the former Taylor Nursing Home. She was a faithful and dedicated member of the United Baptist Church, Taylor, where she taught Sunday school and was a member of the lady’s guild. Helen was caregiver extraordinaire, from caring for her husband, her mother, grandchildren and then her great grandchildren. When she was not nurturing, she enjoyed oil painting, cooking and baking for her family. She was blessed to live in a close-knit neighborhood, and she cherished the relationships she forged with her neighbors. Above all, her family was the center of her life, and she will forever be remembered as a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

Jones and Dr. Lear Von Koch, Dalton and Rebecca Zumbach and husband, Glenn, Taylor; six beloved grandchildren, Shannon Malamud and husband, Brian; Ryan Jones and wife, Robyn; Stefanie Moran and husband, Tim; Joshua Zumbach and wife, Diana; Matthew Zumbach and wife, Charissa and Breannah Hackett and husband, Jon; six great grandchildren, Shelby, Sadie, Jackson, Leighton, Greyson and Zachary; a brother, Dr. Joseph J.
