Anita was born June 6, 1925 in Rosebud, TX to Jim and Nora Neal. Her friends in the last two years of her life, would join her as she would say, “5 ft 2; eyes of blue; has anybody seen my gal”. She would finish by saying; I’ve heard that all my life. She may have been a bit less than 5’2 in the end, but her eyes were noticeably blue until their final closing.
She moved to Waco after graduating from Falls County Schools. There she met and married Cecil Marvin Jones in 1946. After other employment, they both settled into long careers at Owens-Illinois Glass Company; from which they retired. Cecil and Anita were married 56 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; five sisters; five brothers and son-in-law, Hartwell Robinson.
Anita is survived by her children; Sherry Robinson and Kent Jones; three grandchildren, Keela Bonner and husband, Josh; children Lilly, Leyla and Lauralai; Sammie Stromberg and husband T Scott; children, Joshua and Noah; Danni White and husband, Choppie; children Chance, Chad, Cody and Clay; three great great-grandchildren.
The family gives special recognition to Eve Cruz, Anita’s loving caregiver in the last few months of her life. Also, thanks to the staff at Texas Home Health Hospice and for her friends at the Harrison Senior Center.
