Jama Marie Stone, age 64, of Mulberry, Kansas, passed away Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, Kansas.

     Jama was born October 5, 1953 in Joplin, Missouri.  After graduating from Jasper High School, she earned certification as a cosmetologist and had worked at My Fifth Avenue Salon in Lamar.  As a younger adult, Jama’s interest in health and fitness led to a pastime of body building.  When declining health prevented strenuous exercise, she remained as active as possible and enjoyed many days fishing at local lakes and ponds.  A natural caregiver, Jama was known for her big heart and love for her family.

     On June 15, 1996, in Lamar, Jama married Danny Stone and he survives.  Also surviving are four sons, Greg (Anna) Strong, Lamar, Dewaine (Kara) Hammack, Sarcoxie, and twins Dakota and D.J. Stone, Mulberry; two daughters, Becky Eads, Mulberry, and Sky (Bear) Soard, Nevada, Missouri; three brothers, Gail (Cinda) Miller, Lamar, Earl (Marsha) Henson, Joplin, and Benny (Susie) Allen, Indianapolis, Indiana; three sisters, Jane (Bobby) Griffitt, Lockwood, Brenda Sewell, Joplin, and Wanda Thompson, Troy, Missouri; three grandchildren, Anthony Taylor, Jasmine Taylor, and Paisley Soard; three great-grandchildren, Levi Taylor, Emily Taylor, and Caydence Eads; and her mother-in-law, Joyce Stone, Lamar.

     Jama was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Beula Miller; two brothers, B.J. Allen and Richard James; a son-in-law, Bill Eads; and her father-in-law, Glen Stone.

     Funeral services will be held at 6:00 p.m. Saturday, May 26th at Daniel Funeral Home where the family will receive friends from 5:00 until 6:00 p.m. Saturday.
