Anna Luneal Jones, affectionately known as Luneal to the residents of Mansfield, recently celebrated her 100th birthday on November 25. Family and friends, including her physician, gathered at Methodist Village in her honor.
Jones was born on November 25, 1918. She is the widow of E. Ralph Jones, who passed away in May of 1984. The couple has five children: Mona Jones White, Mabel Jones Ball, Neil Jones, Royce Jones and Jerry Jones. She resided in Mansfield prior to moving to Methodist Village in Fort Smith two and a half years ago.
She has made the transition well, befriending many. One friend in particular, Ms. Smith. “We jokingly call them Smith and Jones,” said daughter, Mona White. “We’ve been very satisfied with the way she’s been treated there.”
More than 50 were in attendance. Guests enjoyed cake, cupcakes and a power point presentation recounting Jones’ life. White said she feels her mom has done so well because she has “such a good attitude.” Adding that, “no matter the circumstance, she’s always made the best of it.”
