Donna Joanne Jones, of Moore, Oklahoma, died in her home Thursday, February 23, 2023 at the age of 89. She was surrounded by her family.
Joanne was the only child of Martha Irene Edwards and Larry B. Edwards and grew up in Casper, Wyoming. After graduating from high school in Casper, she attended Barnes Business School in Denver, Colorado. While living in Denver, she met her husband, Trimuel Jones (known to family and friends as “TC” or “Booter”). They married in 1957 and remained together for over 65 years. After marrying, she moved with TC to his native Oklahoma where she lived the rest of her life.
Joanne was a loving mother. The family lived predominantly in Noble, Oklahoma, where she was an active parent and Girl Scout Leader throughout her children’s schooling. She was involved in several jobs during her working years. Notably, she was the owner of a small business, The Honey Pot, which stood on Main Street in Noble. She later took on her most beloved role as a grandmother. She was unwavering in support of her grandchildren and was deeply involved in their activities. One of her greatest joys was traveling the country with her husband. In addition to seeing all 50 states, she traveled throughout Canada and much of Europe. She will be remembered for her good humor, compassion, and dedication to her family. Her memory will live on in the hearts of those she loved.
