The Williams and Davis girls all come running and gathered outside the house as the reception party. She was lucky to find her second love, Glendon James in later years. They were fortunate to spend a blissful 7 years together full of comfort and peace. Mona was and excellent cook. After spending a day in the fields picking cotton she begged to stay home and at the age of 7 or 8 learn to cook for the family instead of working in the fields. Papa Earl had to build her a box so she would be tall enough to reach the top of the wood cook stove. This is how she began a life long love for cooking which earned her the reputation as the best cook in the family. Known best for her peanut butter cookies and pies. Mona worked as a waitress to support her family. She was avid outdoors woman, who was known for her skills in both hunting and fishing, that left most others envious. Mona was a wonderful caretaker, she looked after her father, her husbands, her sister and even her father in law. Mona was most remembered for her fiery red hair and bright blues eye, and the sauciness to back it up. God blessed her with a big heart, generous spirit, and a cheerful optimism. Quick to laugh but able to set you straight if need be. She was loved much by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, as well as countless others. She will be greatly missed by all. We love you GG! Always and Forever. Preceded in death by her husbands John Frederick Jr. and Glendon James; parents; twin infant boys; brother Voyn Weatherall and sister Lula Mae Stokes.

James, Wayne Eugene "Gene"

Wayne Eugene (Gene) James, more often called "Wayne E or "Poppy" went home to his Heavenly Father, Tuesday, January 28, 2014 in Gravelly, Arkansas. Gene was born September 9, 1929 to Perry Chaplan James and Lessie Cunzania (Hunt) James in Briggsville, Arkansas. Gene was 84 years, 4 months and 19 days old. Gene left us peacefully and quietly in his sleep, in the comfort of his rocking chair. Being the youngest of eight children, it was only natural that Gene was commonly known by his siblings and people of the community as "runt". But this was no bother to him, as he was ALWAYS stirring the pot to aggravate or joke around and share that sinister smile of his. His fun loving nature couldn't help but be contagious. A veteran of the U.S. Military, he not only served his country but his beloved family and home as well. He enjoyed being a cattle farmer. Gene lived a life devoted to God as a Baptist and he was a member of the F & AM Masons. He was a 50 year member of Lodge #123 in Bluffton, Arkansas. While being a diverse individual, Gene was a man of work ethics and never ending love for his family. Time spent with them were among his most treasured memories.

Gene leaves behind to cherish his memory, his dear wife and a loving family of three children. He was a proud grandfather to seventeen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Gene will be missed by all that knew him and the many whose lives were impacted by him including a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, neighbors and loved ones.

Gene is preceded in death by his parents, Perry James and Lessie Cunzania (Hunt) James as well as siblings, Virgil, Laura, Jesse, Lynn, Sadie, Cecil and Perry Jr. Gene's life celebration will be at 10:00 a.m.

Thursday, January 30, 2014 at the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home in Waldron, Arkansas with Rev. David Williams officiating. Interment will follow in the Parks Cemetery in Nola, Arkansas. Arrangements are being entrusted to the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home in Waldron, Arkansas. Gene's pallbearers will be Lewis James, Steele James, James Parks, Matthew McClung, Zachary James and Ethan James. Gene's visitation will be Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home Chapel in Waldron, Arkansas. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org,pub.
