Mary JoAnn Chapman
Mary JoAnn Chapman, age 84, passed away peacefully March 18, 2020, at Integris Hospice House in Oklahoma City, Okla. She was born Oct. 5, 1935, in Hydro, Okla., to Clifford and Ethel Coker. She met and married Paul Chapman in May, 1953, and they were happily married for almost 58 years before Paul passed away in 2011.
JoAnn lived life to the fullest, enjoying simple pleasures with her family. She was never idle and enjoyed sewing, jewelry making, quilting and needlework. She made her daughters' wedding dresses. She especially enjoyed working outdoors, whether in the vegetable garden or up on the tractor mowing. JoAnn taught her children the importance of family and supported their many activities and life events. She never complained in spite of health challenges. She was a strong woman with a quick wit and fierce sense of humor. We will miss her laughter.
JoAnn is survived by her three children: son, Paul E. (Gene) Chapman; daughters, Leann (Mark) and Lynda (Paul); five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Gene took great care of our mother for almost a decade in the family home and we honor his devotion to her.
Services are under the direction of Matthews Funeral Home, Edmond, Okla.
