Annabelle Jones Casper

Annabelle Jones Casper joined her Lord and Savior January 16, 2015. Annabelle was 91 years young. She joins her husband, E.L. Casper, her parents, Noel G. and Liane Jones, siblings Noel Jones, Jr., David Jones, and Patricia Nell Weger.

Annabelle is celebrated by her children, Jimmy and wife Linda of Parsons, KS, Ricky and wife Lynn of Parsons, KS, Gene Casper of Granbury, TX, Debbie Sewell of Lexington, KY, and Donna Reeves and husband D’Wayne of Tyler, TX. Annabelle loved her 26 grand-children and 27 great grand-children beyond measure and they were the joy of her life. She is also celebrated by numerous nieces and nephews that she loved dearly.

Annabelle grew up in Cleveland, OK and Parsons, KS and other cities along the MKT Railroad Line. During the 1940’s, Annabelle served her country as a “Rosie the riveter” working in an ammunition plant and working on planes. After marrying E.L. in Tonkawa, OK, they moved to Denison, Texas, where she worked at Diaper Jeans and was a stay-home Mom. The family was members of East Baptist Church. In 1971, the family moved to Iowa Park, TX where Annabelle worked for the IPISD as a bus driver. During retirement with her husband, she lived in Heavener, OK and in Parsons, KS. Annabelle was an avid Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Cubs, and KC Royals fan. The family wishes to thank the staff at Elmhaven East Nursing Home and at Gentiva Hospice Care.

Memorial graveside services were held at 10 a.m., Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at the Cedarlawn Memorial Park in Sherman, TX. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project or they may be left at or mailed to the Carson-Wall Funeral Home 112 N. 26th St. P.O. Box 942 Parsons, KS 67357.
