New Albany Jones, Melba Kay, 67, was greeted by the Lord on Sunday, October 16, 2016. She was a devout Catholic and an active member of Holy Family Catholic Church in New Albany where she served as a sacristan and greeter. She loved coming from a big family. Melba especially enjoyed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and taking trips to the "boat." A person would be very lucky to call Melba a friend. She worked for Auto Wheel & Rim for 39 years and retired from SWH Supply after 7 years of service. There are simply not enough words to describe all the wonderful things about Melba. She was born on September 6, 1949 in New Albany to the late Ed and Nettie (Schmidt) Jones. Melba was also preceded in death by her sisters, Mary Alice Jones, Peggy Banet; and brother-in-law, Paul Banet.
