A life well-lived…a person well-loved…our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother Lois Mae Adams Jones Workman, died peacefully at age 93 on Thursday, May 31, 2018 at Wedgewood Gardens in Branson West, Mo.

She was born May 22, 1925 in Lewistown, Mont. and moved to Fair Play, Mo. at age 11. After high school graduation she met and married Dr. Hal B. Jones, D.O. They lived in Clever, Mo., then moved to Excelsior Springs, Mo. where they raised their children and made lifelong friends. In 1970 they moved to Kimberling City and Hal practiced medicine in Reeds Spring until his death in 1974.

In 1975, Lois met and married Johnnie Workman of Reeds Spring, Mo. Johnnie was a wonderful husband to Lois and an amazing stepfather and grandfather until his death in 1993.

Lois’s enjoyment in life came from spending time with her family and friends. She spent 35 wonderful years selling real estate in Kimberling City area. Lois was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Tri-Lakes Board of Realtors and was inducted into the Reeds Spring Hall of Fame.

She was preceded in death by her parents, five siblings and husbands.

Lois is survived by her children: Jennifer Busen (Michael), Hal D. Jones (Jackie) and Jeannelle Jones Ash (Larry Hoth); grandchildren: Jessica Lyman (Harry), Derrick Jones, Courtney Jones and Bryce Busen; and great-grandson Chase Lyman.

The family thanks Wedgewood Gardens Care Center staff for their dedication in caring for their mother.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the First Baptist Church Kimberling City on Saturday, June 30 at 10 a.m. Immediately after, a reception will be held at the Baptist Church Fellowship Hall (East Campus).

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to Kimberling City Meals on Wheels, Kimberling Area Library or Hospice-Compassus (Branson).
