Doris Dianne Baker Jones was born August 2, 1948 to Charles James and Mary Eunice Coyle (Willis). She was a breast cancer survivor for over 10 years. She passed away in her sleep surrounded by her family on July 11, 2022. She was the only daughter of five children. Her surviving brothers are James (Ruth), David (Patsy), Gary (Sherry) and Lee (Laura) Coyle. As well as her four children, Carmen (Mike), Kitty Jo (Duane), Eric (Jen) and Rusty (Sabrina) and 12 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her husband Charlie Lee Jones (Chuck) and her parents.
Dianne, as she was called all her life, was a champion bloodlines dog breeder since retiring from the CoverAll Upholstery Shop in Lowell, Ohio, which she founded on her own in 1985. She retired and closed the upholstery shop in 2005 after 20 successful years in business. She moved to Alabama with her husband “Chuck” in 1997 and lived there until she became ill from cancer in December of 2021.
She was known for her long and colorful lectures on all aspects of life and she wasn’t afraid to tell you exactly what she was thinking whether you liked it or not. She will fondly be remembered by her children and grandchildren for her life lessons and love of banana splits and pecan pie.
A celebration of life and meal will be taking place at Willow Haven Lodge 71198 Red Brush Road, Kimbolton, Ohio 43749 on August 13 at 1 p.m. All friends and family are welcome. This is a dual celebration of life for Dianne and her mother Mary Coyle.
