Debra Ann Jones Wiley

CLEMMONS, N.C. — Debra Ann Jones Wiley, 57 of Clemmons, NC died Tuesday, August 27, 2013 surrounded by her loving family after a courageous three year battle with cancer. She was born November 18, 1955 to Peggy Joyce Smith Jones Caldwell and the late Arthur Lee Jones, Jr.

Debbie was born in Princeton, WV and raised in Athens, WV. She attended school in Athens, WV and lived there until 1982 when she moved to Beckley, WV. While living in Beckley she was employed as a school bus driver for Raleigh County Schools. In 2010 she moved to Clemmons, NC to be near her children and grandchildren.

One of Debbie's final requests was to take her kids to Virginia Beach for vacation on the boardwalk,  where she became very ill with pneumonia and was in Sentara Virginia Beach Regional Hospital for the last two weeks of her life with her family by her side.

Debbie enjoyed entertaining family, friends and traveling, especially to the beach. She toured many states across the US including her most recent trip in September 2012 where she toured many states out west. Debbie loved to take her daughter and granddaughters shopping and was always thinking of others on her shopping trips. Debbie had a big heart and was an excellent cook. She enjoyed canning and baking, ensuring that she had extras to share with her family and friends.

Debbie gave her life to the Lord Jesus Christ and attended Kerwin Baptist Church in Kernersville, NC with her family.

Debbie was preceded in death by her dad, Arthur Lee Jones Jr., and her paternal Grandparents Agnes and Arthur Jones, Sr. who were like parents to her.

The world has lost a special lady and will forever be remembered as a dedicated wife, a caring daughter to her mother, Peggy Joyce Caldwell, a loving mother by her three children Russell Wiley and wife Sarah, Shawn Wiley, and Stacy Bragg all of North Carolina. Debbie truly adored her three grandchildren Brad and Courtney Wiley and Gracelyn Bragg. In addition she will be missed by her brother Tony Jones and wife Linda of Athens, WV, and their children of Athens, WV, and New Bern, NC. Debbie was also fortunate to have a special Aunt Kay White and her husband Tom of Princeton, WV and their son. Debbie had several friends in Athens and Beckley, WV and Clemmons, NC. Debbie loved and was loved by a large extended family which included many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends even though we can't write all the names here you were very special to her.

A service to celebrate the homegoing of Debra Ann Wiley will be held 2:00 P.M. Sunday, September 1, 2013, from the Burns Wornal Chapel of the Memorial Funeral Directory on the Athens Road in Princeton with her Pastor Daniel Hawtree II of Kerwin Baptist Church in Kernersville, NC, burial will follow in the Athens Cemetery in Athens.
