M. Lucille Jones, 81, of Choctaw, went to be with her husband, Shorty Jones , that she hasn't seen in almost 37 years, on Thursday, July 13, 2006 with family by her side. She was born August 1, 1924 to Robert & Cleo York in Okemah, OK, six of ten kids into hard work, but a loving family. "Lou" or "Cotton", as her brothers and sisters called her, loved the cattle ranch, working in the yard and spending time with her daughter, sons, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her daughter Jeanne and husband, Bill Meek; her two sons, Brian and wife, Cathy Jones and Tehran and wife, Carol Jones; six grandchildren, Tristi (Meek) Ross, Kyle Jones, Tevi (Meek) Winters, Tawni Meek, Courtney Jones, and Cailee Jones; two great-grandchildren, Kaymen and Kade Ross with two more on the way. She is also survived by two sisters, Ruth Everitt of Texas and Betty Robb of South Carolina; three brothers, Ted York & Edward York of Oklahoma City, and Billy York of Mustang; and numerous other family members.

Mrs. Jones was a second mom to a lot of baseball playing boys down at the ballpark and loved every minute of it. She and dad wouldn't have traded that experience for the world.

Services will be at Bill Eisenhour Northeast Chapel by Brother J. Harold Thompson at 10:00 AM, Monday July 17, 2006 and she'll be laid to rest alongside dad at Arlington Memory Gardens following service. The family would also like to extend a very thoughtful note to all the Nurses, Aides, Doctors, Workers, and Chaplains at Norman Regional Hospital for their thoughtfulness and dedication to our mom during her brief stay in the ICU and room #4917; you were a God sent at a hard time and we couldn't have made it without you. Thank You Very Much!
