Mary Jo Jones


Mary Jo Jones, 93, joined her Heavenly Father on July 24, 2019. She was born to William Crawford and Cherbia Crawford on March 17, 1926, in Okemah, Okla.
She was a beloved mother, wife, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Edmond and a devout Christian. Her family always came first to her and we all knew she loved us unconditionally. I guess you could say that her hobby was her family. She never looked or acted her age. In fact, she mowed her own lawn up until four years ago. She was an excellent cook, and a fantastic hostess. She had such a loving, sweet, personality but could be tough when defending those she loved.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers; one sister; her husband, Gerold; her grandson, Brad Harkins; and great-granddaughter, Alana Matanane.
She is survived by her son, Jerry Jones; daughter, Sherrie Harkins (Bruce);
granddaughter, Amy Bates (Chad); grandson, Jeremy Jones; granddaughter, Sarah Matanane (Josh); granddaughter-in-law, Lacey Harkins; and great-grandchildren, Peyton Bates, Cole Bates, Aydin Matanane, Masyn Matanane, Isabella Matanane, Nolyn Matanane, Gunner Harkins, and Glee Harkins.
We would like to thank Companion Hospice and Rosa Matanane for their love and care of our mother.
Graveside service will be 10 a.m. Monday, July 29, 2019, at Gracelawn Cemetery in Edmond.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be given to Boys Ranch of Edmond or Samaritan's Purse.
Services are under the direction of Matthews Funeral Home, Edmond.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to the whole family. My heart is heavy, I will truly miss my dear friend, mom and mentor. Me and Mary Jo share a close bond. I will forever cherish those memories.
