Fort Smith High School
Brenda Albright

After High School graduation I earned a B.S. in Business Education from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. I graduated in May of 1962 and married Gerald W. Jones in June of 1962. We lived in Oklahoma City with our two girls until 1968 when his company, State Farm Life Insurance, transferred us to the Dallas area. We lived in Richardson until 1978 when we were again transferred to Columbia, MO.

We enjoyed Columbia for 19 years, until State Farm transferred us to Greeley, Colorado, in 1996. We loved Greeley and would have stayed there after retirement in 1997, but one of our girls with our two grandsons was here in Joplin and the other one was in Kansas City. Now we have a granddaughter in Lee’s Summit, so we are pleased to be living in Joplin and to be near our kids and grandkids.

My hobbies include my church, quilting, grandkids, and being an Ambassador for the Elderhostel program.
