TALK OF GREENWOOD


Harry and Georgia Jones joined family and friends to observe their 60th wedding anniversary on Dec. 30. Nearly 150 people were in attendance to commemorate the occasion.  

The dinner program included remarks from the couple’s daughters: Janetha Jones Edwards and Jenice Jones. Pastor Debbie McIntosh of Transformation Church delivered the invocation. 

Joining in the celebration in addition to the couple’s two children were their six grandchildren. Pictured with the Joneses at the program were (standing, l-r) Zachary Edwards (grandson); Jenice Jones (daughter); Nylah Edwards (granddaughter) and her husband, Kandro Brown; Raina Brown (granddaughter); Cierra Edwards (granddaughter); Kalaya Clark (granddaughter) and her husband, Christopher Clark; Janetha Jones-Edwards (daughter) and her husband, Robert Edwards.      

One would ask what the secret to their marital success is. “I believe it is because of their sacrifice and unconditional love,” said Jenice Jones. 

The Joneses have been enjoying their life after retiring. Harry worked at the City of Tulsa for 30 years and Georgia ended her career at the former Sun Oil Refinery after 26 years.  

He is a graduate of the Class of 1959 at Booker T. Washington High School. She is a member of the Class of 1960 at Okmulgee Dunbar High School, where she graduated as valedictorian. She later attended Langston University and is a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
