Jonnie C. Coleman, 85, of Yuma, Arizona, passed away peacefully at River Valley Estates Assisted Living in Yuma with family by her side on June 28, 2019.
Jonnie was born to Johnny Cecil and Reba Fay Green Davis on Sept. 26, 1933, in Meeker, Colorado. Jonnie went to school in Meeker and graduated Meeker High School in 1951.
Jonnie married (the love of her life) Harry S. Coleman on June 5, 1955. They farmed on the family farm on Little Beaver until 1979, when they retired and moved to Yuma, Arizona, in 1981.
Jonnie is survived by her two children, H. Scott (Cindy) Coleman of Montesano, Washington, and Princetta Ingram of Escondido, California; three grandchildren—Jennifer (Steven) Clark, John Coleman and Josh Coleman; seven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; her brother Wallace Jackson and her sister-in law/daughter Shirley (John) McCoy. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Harry S. Coleman in 1999, her father Johnny Cecil Davis, her mother Reba Fay Green Davis Jackson, her stepfather Charles William Jackson, her baby sister Virginia Davis and her brother Clarence W. Davis.
Jonnie was a loving wife and mother. She loved to sew, fish, tying flies for fishing and stamping. She took pride in her home, she thought one must spring clean four times a year if it needed it or not. She was caught cleaning walls and ceilings on a ladder at age 83. She was a member of the Daughters of Rebekah in Meeker, Colorado, director on the Board of Arizona Association of Mobile Home Owners, and treasurer of TOPS A92 in Yuma for many years.
Her family will be placing her ashes next to her husband Harry on the family farm.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers for those who wish to make donations to hospice or the American Cancer Society.
