Norma Jean Watson Jones

Norma Jean Watson Jones was welcomed into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on December 8, 2020.

Norma was born November 9, 1930 in Driftwood, Texas and was the 4th of eight children born to Henry (Ovie) and Emma Mae Watson.  She graduated from Buda High School after attending the Driftwood school through the 8th grade. 

The annual Camp Ben Reunion was anticipated every year and was where Norma met the love of her life, Allan Jones.  She and Allan raised three children in Corpus Christi where they made a home after living at different times in Austin and San Antonio.  Norma worked for many years in retail but being a wife and a mother was what she really loved.   Many happy summers were spent camping along Cypress Creek at Blue Hole in Wimberley as well as the Camp Ben McCullough Reunion in Driftwood. 

Norma’s favorite activities included gardening, spending time with family and friends and especially attending the Hill Country Senior Activity Center where she spent time volunteering at the Thrift Shop.  She was a long time member of Dripping Springs United Methodist Church. 

Norma is preceded in death by her parents Henry Ovelton (Ovie) and Emma Mae Watson, a son Charles Ronald, brothers Billy Ray Watson, James Truett Watson, George O. Watson and sisters Juanita Massey and Clara Nell Brumley.  Survivors include brother Bobby (Sue) Watson, sister Mary Jo (Leroy) Fischer, children Leonard (Mary Lou) Jones, Theresa Berry, and Cheryl (Ken) Fair, grandchildren W. Allan Jones, Richard Brown, Jimmy Brown, Jason Berry, David Dill, Jessica Lieck, Marcus Lieck, Bryan Fair and Kevin Fair as well as ten great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Friday, December 11, 2020 at Harrell Funeral Home, 100 Heritage Dr., Austin, 78737.  Funeral Services will be 10:00 AM Saturday, December 12, 2020 at the Dripping Springs United Methodist Church.  Burial will follow at Phillips Cemetery.
