GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Martha Arnold Susong (Arne) Jones, who spent six decades in roles at The Greeneville Sun ranging from co-owner to columnist, has died. She was 101.

The Greeneville Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2gJwyLb ) Jones died peacefully early Friday with her five children by her side at Laughlin Memorial Hospital.

Jones co-owned the newspaper with a few family members from the 1940s until earlier this year. For three decades, she sat on the board of directors for the newspaper and its parent company, Jones Media, Inc.

Jones wrote the well-known “cheerful chatter” column weekly or monthly for 33 years, from 1974 until 2007.

Jones’ husband, former longtime Sun publisher John M. Jones, died in July.

The family will receive friends Sunday at St. James Episcopal Church. The funeral will follow at the church Monday.
