Obituary

Amy Lynn Jones was born August 16, 1982 to George L. and Charlotte Scott in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Amy was raised in Stillwater and attended Perkins-Tryon Public Schools. She graduated as salutatorian of her senior class. Amy was united in marriage to Landon Blaine Jones on November 13, 2004 at Bible Baptist Church in Stillwater. To this union 2 children were born, Cooper Blaine Jones on June 28, 2011 and Wyatt Clay Jones on April 8, 2015.Amy was a wonderful wife to Landon, whom she absolutely adored and was a fantastic mother to her two little boys. Amy was a dedicated housewife who worked tirelessly to make sure that her family was happy in everything that they did.
Happy is the word that could define Amy. She woke up everyday happy, no matter what was going on in her life. She was overflowing with joy, on a daily basis. Amy loved her kitchen, which she filled with the brightest colors, and she was also a wonderful cook. She loved Fiesta dinnerware and collected a huge amount of it over the years with every piece and setting a different color. She would often open her cabinets, look inside, and exclaim to whoever was standing near, “My cabinets look so happy with all of my different colored dishes!” When she found a recipe that she liked, you could be sure that she would modify it and make into something that everyone loved. She loved to sew and craft. She spent many hours on Landon’s grandmother's sewing machine making pajamas for the boys and herself, Halloween costumes, bags, purses, and any little cute thing that she could think of that would make the boys happy. She made crafts of all kinds to decorate the house and to entertain the boys. She claimed that Pinterest was going to get her one of these days. She loved to find a craft that she could do with the boys every week or so. They loved working at the dining room table with Mom on whatever fun thing that she came up with. She loved horses and they were always her absolute favorite thing. Growing up, she rode nearly every day and she loved spending endless hours roaming her parents’ pastures on her horses. She and Landon shared their interest in horses and enjoyed riding together. Amy always wanted to be the person who taught her boys to ride. She also loved her plants and she had lots of potted plants that made her porches and backyard look happy in the summer and the inside of her house like a greenhouse in the winter.
The first time that Landon brought her to Cordell, was during wheat harvest. Amy had never seen a combine up close before, but she fell in love with cutting wheat and farming on her very first trip here. She loved Landon before that, but that trip during harvest was all it took for her to decide that life on the farm was exactly what she wanted. Every year, she would climb onto the combine with Landon and be perfectly content to spend all day every day on it with him. When the boys were born, she took them right along with her. It got pretty crowded in the cab of that machine with two adults and two babies, but that never bothered Amy one bit.
She was always fascinated with the farm in the winter time. She never got tired of the fact that the wheat fields were almost always a beautiful green color even in the deepest part of the winter. She liked to sit and watch the baby calves play, or the cows and stocker cattle out grazing on wheat pasture. Wherever Landon went on the farm, that was exactly where she wanted to be at that moment.
She was also a talented photographer and she decided after high school that she wanted to be a professional photographer, so she took classes in photography. Amy was a successful wedding and portrait photographer until her boys were born. Her favorite subject to take pictures of, was the farm, since there was a never-ending supply of new and interesting things to take pictures of. She liked to challenge herself with taking photos of flowers and wound up with a very impressive portfolio. After Cooper and Wyatt were born, they became the focus of her picture taking. In fact, they almost instinctively pose for pictures now! Amy always said that her kids were going to have the most well documented lives of any person ever born! She would often take hundreds of pictures of the boys a month. By extension of her picture taking, she was a scrapbooker. She liked to take her pictures and tell the story behind them in her scrapbooks and in books that she would have printed. She also loved to write, and she wrote about so many different things, bits of poetry, devotionals, and books for and about the boys. She also maintained a blog for a very long time, sharing with anyone who wanted to see, the pictures and stories of the life that she loved with the family that she loved. She also wrote three books that she was very proud of and wanted to get published.
Amy was a kind and gentle soul, who never met a stranger and had a unique ability to draw people to herself. If you found yourself a friend of Amy, you never had a truer friend. She never could understand and it often surprised her, why people liked her so much. Her big, kind smile and easy-going nature could put anyone at ease and make them feel at home. In the first 10 minutes of meeting Amy for the first time, she would have your name memorized, make you feel like her oldest friend, and have told you in some way or another about Jesus.
Amy was most importantly a strong, faithful, Christian woman. She loved Jesus with all her heart and wanted the whole world to know it. She could not stand the thought of someone perishing without knowing Jesus because she had missed an opportunity to tell them about Him or had done something to turn them away from the Lord. Amy has always been a woman who believed and followed the Lord 100%. As anyone who knows, or has heard of Amy, she has had a life full of troubles. She was born with a cleft palate and had to endure all of the surgeries and dental work that came with that as a child. Then she had the tragedy of going through three miscarriages of babies that, though she had not met them yet, she loved with all her heart. Probably the most familiar to people, is her struggles with the disease that ultimately took her life: cancer. When most people would have given up, she made the conscious decision each day that she was going to put on the full armor of God, be lifted-up by the love of her family, and praise God’s name to whoever would listen. Her testimony of faith in God, throughout all of life’s ups, downs, and disasters, is what made her so precious to those who knew her, or have been touched by her story. Whatever situation was handed to her, she dealt with it in the total grace of God. When Amy was featured in the Daily Oklahoman one of the things she said in her interview was, “I don’t care who you are or what you’re going through, if you look hard enough, you can find a blessing in every situation. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!” Amy has been a shining example of what the Lord calls each one of us to be each day. She has a little sign next to her kitchen sink that captures her heart. It simply reads, “Live Each Day with Joy!”
Amy is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Landon and her two beloved sons Cooper and Wyatt. Her parents, George and Charlotte Scott of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Sisters, Lee Merrell and husband Josh of Weatherford, Texas and Lexie Fleet and husband Andrew of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Grandfather, Dorsey Wells of Sulphur, Oklahoma. Father and mother-in-law, Nick and Leah Jones. Brother-in-law, Levi Jones and wife Tesa. Grandparents-in-law, Kenneth and Frieda Jones, all of Cordell, Oklahoma. Five nieces and nephews and a great host of extended family and friends.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven! Matthew 5:16

As a college and now life-long friend of Yavonn's, I had the privilege of meeting Amy. During the brief times I met and interacted with her, I saw a young lady of inner beauty, strength and confidence. I will always remember her smile when I think of her, and especially her courage and her faith, as she walked through each day trusting in the sovereign hand and loving heart of the Lord Jesus and her Father God to carry her safely through into His loving arms. She demonstrated for us all how to walk with through the difficulties with hope, joy, courage and dignity. I am sorry for your loss, and I will be praying for your family - for His love, comfort, peace and provision during this time.

Always a giggle and a wiggle. She had such faith hope and joy through her journey always professing her faith in God to carry her through. Touching so many lives with her testimony. I loved her so much and will miss her sweet smile but will join her one day. Until then I will flood my heart with precious memories.

She was such a joy to have as my aide in PreK. She loved making games for the children and I teased her about how particular she was about getting those graph lines perfect.  I use them every year and she was pregnant with Cooper that year. We gave her a diaper shower at school and she was so happy and appreciative that we did anything for her. My heart hurts for you, Landon and boys. Landon, you were once my Kindergarten baby and I have a special place in my heart for you and your family Love, Mona Horn

Just hearing of your passing and I can not help but reflect on memories of our times together growing up at Bible Baptist Church. The church bus rides, vacation Bible school, Saturday mornings playing kickball at church(with all the church kids) while our parents visited kids from the bus routes, you always pretending like you were a horse and I was too secretly. The one thing that sticks out in my mind is you were never afraid to be you. To spread your light, your silliness, stand up for yourself and others and your beliefs everyday, everywhere. I'll always admire and remember you for that.  In a world where staying true to yourself is difficult it seems you never waivered. You were too beautiful for this world and so may you rightly Shine forever in the next. Your Childhood Friend Karri
