Originally located at 440 State Avenue, the funeral home was run by his wife, Mrs. Mary A. Jones, after her husband's death. Upon her own death in 1963, the business passed to two long-serving employees.
In 1973, the funeral home moved to its current location and was permanently renamed the Mrs. J. W. Jones Memorial Chapel. The current staff are long-serving employees of the descendants of Mrs. Mary A. Jones' heirs. Funeral service options include direct cremation, cremation with memorial services and traditional burial.
