Marie Fina Reginelli Jones, 95, passed away on Monday, May 9, 2022, in Monticello, Arkansas. She was born January 24, 1927, in Lake Village, Arkansas to the late Silvano and Rosa Marcellini Reginelli, immigrants from the Le Marche region of Italy. Marie was a 1945 graduate of Lakeside High School in Lake Village, Arkansas. Marie married the love of her life, Ervin B. Jones, in October 1948. They remained married for sixty years and were truly each other's best friend. Marie and Ervin enjoyed travel: in their motor home seeing the USA, cruising the Caribbean, and to her beloved Italy. She was active in her church and community, volunteering with the hospital auxiliary in Okmulgee, OK, and joining St. Mark Catholic Church when they moved to Monticello in 2002. Marie's Catholic faith carried her through all life's ups and downs with grace. She loved playing cards and games, golfing, trout fishing, and gardening and was an excellent cook. She was known for her homemade pasta and tamales. Deliziosa!!

Marie is preceded in death by her parents; and ten brothers and sisters; Melinda Olivi, Lena Olivi, Theresa Olivi, Adele Euseppi, Josephine Carson, James, Louis, Philip, Alfredo, and Gitulio Reginelli.

She is survived by a host of loving nieces and nephews; long-term caregivers Anita, Kattie, Tam, and many others who tenderly cared for Marie and provided friendship and comfort in her time of greatest need, and her St. Mark Parish family who recognized that to know Marie was to love her.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mark Catholic Church in Monticello, Arkansas. Burial will be in St. Isidore Cemetery, Lake Village, Arkansas.
