Eloise White Jones passed away on February 3, 2018 at the age of 87 in Fort Smith. She was a member of James Fork Baptist Church in Mansfield. She was an avid Razorback fan and loved listening to her Hogs on the radio.
Eloise was born August 31, 1930 in Scott County, Arkansas to JB and Bess Hawkins. Our loss is heaven's gain as she joins those who've gone before her including the father of her children, George "Pete" White, parents JB and Bess Hawkins, brothers; Hershel, Benoise, Cecil and Theo, sister Freeda Rose and her son-in-law Ronnie Raible.
