Margery Jones

Margery Phyllis Lockwood Jones, beloved wife of William S. Jones of Lucerne, passed away very quietly at home December 31, 2012 surrounded by her husband, loving son, Larry (Mieko) Jones, and her beloved Poodle, Kala.

Born March 12, 1917 in Fort Morgan, Colo., Margery graduated from high school in Alhambra, Calif.  She moved with her parents and two sisters, now deceased, to Winnemucca, Nev., and while working at the high school there, met and fell in love with Bill. They married on July 15, 1934 and spent 78 years together.

Their first son, William Willard, passed away at two weeks of age. Their daughter Dorothy lives at Penney Farms with her husband, Fred. Larry and Mieko live in Lucerne where they have cared for Marge and Bill for the past five years.

Margery, or Marge as she was known to everyone, and Bill have spent the past 40-plus years in Lake County where Bill was a real estate broker with Noble Realty until his retirement.  

Marge was actively involved with the American Legion in Lucerne and was a regular attendee at the former Lakeshore Baptist Church in Lucerne.

Margery leaves behind six grandsons, 16 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. But, she also leaves behind countless friends and relatives who saw her as one of the sweetest, most caring people one could ever hope to meet.

Memorial gifts in her name will be greatly received by the Lucerne Alpine Senior Center, PO Box 937, Lucerne CA 95458.

A gathering of friends is planned at the Lucerne Senior Center at the end of the Saturday breakfast in February.
