Martha Mae Nolen Jones Obituary
Martha Mae Nolen Jones, 91, died Tuesday, June 2, 2015. Funeral: 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Mount Olivet Chapel. Interment: Mount Olivet Cemetery. Martha was born Dec. 5, 1923, in Fort Worth. She was the third of seven children born to Harley and Julia Nolen. She graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1941. Martha married Carl Jones on Oct. 18, 1955, in Fort Worth. She loved cooking, sewing, crocheting, bird watching and completing word search puzzles. She was the longest living member of her family at 91 years and 6 months of age. Martha was an avid fan of "As the World Turns." She started watching the show early in 1956, when she quit work to prepare for the birth of her daughter, and continued to watch the show daily until it ended in 2010. Fortunate to have enjoyed good health in recent years, with only the minor aches and pains associated with growing old, she remained active until just a few days before her death. After high school graduation, she worked for a brief time at Kress Department Store, Main and Fifth Street. She later worked for several finance companies in and around downtown Fort Worth, including one located in the iconic Neil P. Anderson Building. Martha was preceded in death by her husband, Carl E. Jones; parents, Libron Harley and Julia Lee Duncan Nolen; brothers, James Nolen, Richard Nolen and Lee Nolen; and sisters, Catherine Nolen and Margaret Miller. Survivors: Daughter, Doris Jones of Newark; son, Charles Jones of Newark; sister, Marie Davis of Lufkin; numerous nieces and nephews; and granddogs, Christopher and Bisoux.
