The only thing that was small about Emma Jones was her size. A diminutive lady with a depth spirit that was always something to behold, Emma will always be remembered by what she did for those around her A sweet angel who earned her wings long ago.Emma was a helper throughout her life. Whether it was making sure that you were comfortable, or had enough to eat, to lending a hand (even though she may not have had two nickels to rub together), Emma was always there to make sure that she could help. It will be the little things, the cards and coupons to her granddaughters (and friends as well) to the phone calls to everyone she may have had an encounter with, Emma was always there to lend an ear or word, depending on the occasion.Â Even as she began to decline in health as she aged, Emma worked as a licensed vocational nurse for many elderly people around Tulsa and Broken Arrow.Emma loved her family more than anything, or anyone, could ever imagine. From raising three children (Debra, Linda and Brent) to cherishing the day when her little Krista and her little Michelle were married with great-grandbabies, (Cal, Kylie, Hayley and Addison) for her to see, Emma always placed her family first.Â This family extended well beyond her own blood kin to include the Poplins, the Suttons, Brad Countryman, Leon Hardin, the Marrows, the Warwicks, and a host of old friends.You might not have been able to get her to dinner, but dessert was never a problem From pies to cakes, and ice cream to candies, Emma was ALWAYS there if a sweet was around. Perhaps this affinity for sugar passed through her blood in order for her to pass that on to her friends and family. Emma often said that she didn’t just have one sweet tooth, they were all sweet.Â She got into big trouble when her granddaughters were staying with her and her daughter came to pick them up.Â Debra found out that Emma had been giving the girls pre-sweetened Kool Aid with even more added sugar!Â The girls were spoiled for good.As Emma looks down upon us today, she would not want us to mourn over her loss, but she would want you all to take the time to clip the article out of the paper and send it to someone you know was interested in that subject, or send the fall leaves to the grand-babies in California because they don’t know what the leaves look like, or to simply call and say hello to someone you might have just talked to you yesterday, but you had something else you knew they would enjoy. It is this spirit of life that Emma would want us to remember.The pain and misery of disease has left her body, but Emma Jones’s warm spirit is something that will live in all those she touched.
