In the last few weeks, family and friends have been saying their goodbyes to the matriarch of our family, Clydie Elizabeth Jones Danson, who joined the “great cloud of witnesses” as she went to her heavenly home August 3, 2020. She was 103 years old, born March 7, 1917 in Jacksonville, FL to Elizabeth Ida Ponce Jones and Fred P. Jones. A resident of Franklin, NC for the past sixteen years, she grew up in Jacksonville and was married to the late John William “Jake” Danson for 54 years.
In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by her four siblings, Genevieve Louise Braddock (Ray), Fred P. Jones, Jr. (Mildred), Edward Drew Jones (Louise/Ruby), Jeanette Bertha Farrow (Jack).
She is survived by her two daughters, Juanita Elizabeth Wiggins (Max) and Beverly Lee Burt (Daniel), both of Franklin, NC; four grandchildren, Ronda Elizabeth Thomas (James) of Vero Beach, FL, Robin Amanda Wieckhorst (Douglas) of Winter Springs, FL, Teresa Lee Burt of Sorrento, FL and Tonia Lee Anderson (Jacob) of Cleveland, TN; six great grandchildren, Andria Elizabeth Thomas, Justin and Jenna Wieckhorst, Benjamin and Bethany Anderson and Deborah Burt.
She was a member of Franklin Church of God. Evan though mobility has been difficult for her for several years, it was important to her that she was able to attend most church services.
She was an avid gardener and always had beautiful flowers growing around her home wherever she lived. She was also known for her love of crocheting and making ceramics. She made and gave to family and friends hundreds of afghans, lap quilts, doilies, angels, birds and Christmas Nativity Sets and Villages.
A Graveside service will be held at Woodlawn Cemetery Friday, August 7, 2020 at 11:00 am with Rev. Mike Stephens and Rev. Phillip Cochran officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Franklin Church of God Building Fund, C/O Jean Poindexter, PO Box 717, Franklin, NC 28734 or Hospice House Foundation of WNC, PO Box 815, Franklin, NC 28744.

Oh how my heartbreaks to see this lovely angel go home.
I got to know her so well every month for the last 9 years. I am so glad I got to visit on her 103 Birthday, as we know covid19 kept us away every since.
I will miss her wisdom, our talks about God, watching her quilt and crocheting.
I know now she's not suffering and at home with our heavenly Father because I know she was a true angel.
I will truly miss her and I am so BLESSED TO HAVE gotten to know her.
My deepest condolences to all the family. She was truly Loved.😢💔.

I am so happy for Ms Clydie that she managed something that she wanted to do very make her 103rd birthday. Clydie was such a sweet and kind lady. I had the pleasure of meeting and providing care for her at times during her hospitalizations. On a fun note, I also had the pleasure of singing "happy birthday" to her on her final birthday! She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Sincerest condolences to the family. Rosemary Skiner
