Levon Jones, also known as Bonnie “Our Mammaw”, age 93, born in Lancaster, Missouri, passed away peacefully in Red Oak Health and Rehab, on Monday, August 26, 2019 with her loved ones present.
Levon worked for Southwestern Bell as a telephone operator for 31 years. She retired in 1983. She and her husband moved to the Cedar Creek Lake shortly after.
Mammaw was happiest outside doing the simplest things. She always said that the house work took a backseat to her activities outside. “There was always a weed that needed pulled.”
She loved her Dallas Cowboys, hardly never missed a game.
Mammaw was a member of the First Baptist Church of Gun Barrel City, Texas. She read the Bible countless times from beginning to end.
Mammaw was a wonderful person and filled with joy and projected that with everyone she met. Rest in Peace, Mammaw. We love you!
