COVERED WELLS — Jessica Frances Antone, 38, of Phoenix died on May 19, 2022.
Ms. Antone was born on May 13, 1984, to Jamie Deleon and Brenda Lupe Antone. She had much positive energy, and everyone felt it when they were around her. She loved to smile, give and receive hugs, and hold hands. Her passion for puzzles was a special one that eventually turned her bedroom walls into a mural displaying all of her completed pieces of art as she made her puzzles into hanging pictures.
She loved life and everyone loved her. She woke up every day with a smile on her face and a will to accomplish anything her body would allow her to. The day of her birthday, even though she felt weak and was struggling to catch her breath, she made it out for her birthday party and made it a wonderful one, not only for herself but for everyone who was blessed with her presence. She always kept a positive attitude, and she always kept a smile on her face no matter what.
She was a loving and caring person. She always looked out for her friends and fellow residents in her home, frequently requesting assistance from caregivers and medical staff for others when she noticed that someone else needed help. She always went out of her way every day to say hello to everyone and talk to them. She loved to be helpful, always the first person to jump in and assist when she was able to. She loved the color purple and loved to play games, watch her favorite TV shows, garden, go shopping and eat her favorite foods, especially pizza. She demonstrated kindness and positivity to everyone around her through her strong, resilient and compassionate character.
She is survived by her father; a brother, Marlon Antone; and a sister, Everley Thomas. She was preceded in death by her mother.
Graveside service at 8 a.m. on Friday, June 3, in Covered Wells.
J. Warren Funeral Services, Mountain View Chapel in charge of arrangements.
