History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.
Together, we'll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honor their loved one.
In March of 1950, Clyde and Shirley Jones founded Jones Funeral Home. Clyde and Shirley began their husband and wife service to others by both of them earning their funeral director license and Clyde also earning his embalmers license. She was one of very few female directors and in that time it was a very rare position. By obtaining her license, Shirley, like other females, made a statement as to the importance of females in funeral service. Shirley's vision was female involvement in every aspect of funeral service. A belief carried on by 2nd generation, Dana Jones Wynn, and also third generation, Ellen Wynn McBrayer. The Jones-Wynn family firmly believes that the female touch is unique and valuable. The family tradition continued in 1970 when Charles Wynn married Clyde and Shirley's only daughter, Dana Jones, to become the second generation.
The funeral home remains today at its original location at the intersection of Westview Drive and Spring Street in Villa Rica, Georgia. The name of the funeral home has experienced a name change within the family. In 1983 the funeral home name was changed from Jones Funeral Home to the present name of Jones-Wynn Funeral Home. The Jones-Wynn Funeral Home Family opened a second location in nearby Douglasville in the fall of 1999. The two locations have given Jones-Wynn Funeral Home the ability to better serve the West Georgia area. As the tradition of the Jones-Wynn Funeral Home Family continues into the future with over fifty-four years of dedicated service, its legacy, Dana Jones Wynn, the second generation funeral service professional from the family, states “The most important thing to remember is to keep our funeral home synonymous with its name and reputation of serving and caring for families. We are three generations carrying on one tradition.”
It is that tradition that has continued to drive us while serving families with understanding, compassion, and respect for over half a century. My grandfather began a tradition of ‘A Family Serving Families®…Since 1950' over 50 years ago. Being the third generation, it is truly a blessing to walk with both first and second generations,” states Ellen Wynn McBrayer.

Dana Wynn feels, like most of her colleagues, that community service is a vital part of involvement and serving our families. Another belief the Jones-Wynn Family shares is the involvement of professional associations. Being members of GFDA and NFDA is very valuable. Dana Wynn feels, “Associating with professional colleagues not only creates a version of ‘United We Stand', but a wealth of knowledge inherited.” “For Jones-Wynn…” continued Dana Wynn, “I would not operate a funeral home without being a member of GFDA and NFDA. The updates, information, friendship, and much more, are valuable business tools.” Ellen McBrayer added, “To me it is like having a ‘cheat sheet' with all the information and personal experiences gained. It has truly given me a ‘head start' in my funeral service journey. Thank you for being such outstanding mentors.”
