Judith “Judy” lllene Long Jones, born October 6, 1941 in Sweetwater, Texas to Joe and Florene Long passed away peacefully on December 6, 2017 in Norman Oklahoma. She is preceded in death by her husband of thirty years, Lathan “Corkey” Jones, and her two sisters, Betty Allred and Carol Canterbury.

In her youth, Judy played basketball for Roby High School and was on the Pep Squad. She always spoke fondly of her friends and time in Roby. Judy spent years in the secretarial field, but in her free time enjoyed spending time with her family, quilting, camping, baking and traveling. She was very involved in her community helping with various booster clubs, school events, scoring for the academic team and helping at Christian Life Church. She was Nana not only to her grandchildren, but became “Nana Judy” to many others in the Lexington community.
To all of those whom she touched in her lifetime, she will be greatly missed.
A celebration of her life is scheduled to be held at Christian Life Church in Lexington, Oklahoma on Sunday, December 17th at 2:00 PM.
