She became a war bride when she met and married H.E. “Gene” Jones in Weatherford on April 22, 1943. She and Gene lived in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Seattle, Wash., before he was shipped overseas. Orva Lou loved to garden and was wonderful with flowers. She loved to play 80 and cards with friends from the senior center. Orva Lou always loved to look after and loved the neighbor’s children and she opened her home during the holidays, as all were welcome. She was a lifetime member of First United Methodist Church of Weatherford.

Survivors include a daughter, Nancy Lane and husband, Keith, of Irving; and a host of loving family, church family and friends.

Orva Lou was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Harvey Eugene “Gene” Jones, in 1994; and her parents.

In lieu of flowers the family suggest that donations may be made in Orva Lou’s memory to Samaritan’s Purse, P.O. Box 3000, Boone, NC 78607, 828-262-1980.
