"They lived life. They didn't watch it on TV, they lived life...and what life they had on this earth they enjoyed it. They trusted in God and lived a good life," she said. 

A bulldozer operator found a Warner's skull and some personal items under a brush pile on private property, investigators said.

The couple was last seen at the Washington County home of Craig Pennington, their tenant, on July 3. Pennington, 52, is charged with murder in connection with their disappearance

A family member said Pennington was behind on paying rent to Jones and Warner.
