Ms. Irish Shuntell Jones, beloved mother, grandmother, daughter and sister at the graceful age of 50, transitioned from this life at Methodist South Hospital in Memphis, TN on July 25, 2020. She was the eldest born of Gwendolyn Jones and the late Lawerance Payne on January 25, 1970 in Victoria, MS.
