LaDella was born on Jan. 18, 1934, at Durwood, Okla., to Walton Ladell Rabe and Tilmae (Hinshaw) Rabe. The family moved to Lone Grove in 1941, where she attended and graduated from Lone Grove High School with the Class of 1952. She married Clemuel Claude “Clem” Jones Jr., on Oct. 31, 1952, at Zaneis. After their marriage, they settled in Lone Grove. She took a job with Owen’s Shoe Store and later worked at the Ardmore sale barn on Mondays as a bookkeeper. LaDella worked alongside her husband with their family business, Clem’s Diesel Service, as the office manager and running parts, and later for Ardmore Sewing Center.
