Nov. 12, 1924  —  May 29, 2013

Oneida (Nita) Mae Farris Jones of Pollock Pines, Calif., passed away at the age of 88 years old at home on May 29, 2013. She was born on Nov. 12, 1924, in Shawnee, Okla., to Amos Preston Farris and SalliPearl Applewhite Farris. She relocated to Benicia, Calif., in the 1940s.

Oneida was preceded in death by her husband, Clester Carrol Jones (1979); her parents; and all of her siblings. She is survived by her three daughters, Linda Abrahamson, Myrna (Mike) Lunceford and Deborah (Eric) Land; her three grandchildren, Darin (Polly) Pescio, Mitzi (Josh) Cain and Damon (Sophie Blackburn) Land; and her five great-grandchildren, Kyle, Preston, Derek, Justin and Chevy. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Oneida raised her girls in Benicia, where she was very involved in many activities. She was the Mother Advisor for Rainbow Girls and a Girl Scout leader; she worked in the kitchen at the elementary school; she was a Sunday school teacher; and she worked for the Army as a civilian. She was active in Eastern Star and the Masonic family. She loved basketball and played as a student. She loved to cook and bake for her family and friends. Everyone around her called her Mom or Nonie.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that donations be made to Shriner’s Hospital for Children or Snowline Hospice. Donations to Shriner’s can be made online on behalf of Oneida Jones, designated to where most needed.

A celebration of life will be held in Pollock Pines on June 29.
