Jonnie was one of my oldest and dearest friends. We knew each other when we were both skinny little girls, later at Ouachita College, and still later after retirement and as a fellow church member. I will miss her greatly and she has a special place in my memories. Thelma White

It has been with great pride to "share" a granddaughter, Jessie, with Jonnie. She was such a beautiful person both inside and out. She will always be in our hearts. Maxine and Johnny Bell
