JONES -- Alice Jones, 89, died Tuesday, May 23, 2006. Alice was born in Uppsala, Sweden and emigrated with her family to the United States when she was seven years old. She had two sisters, Birgit and Margaret, and one brother, Donald. Alice's maiden name was Hamilton. She attended the University of Chicago and received a degree in archeology. On one of her field trips, she assisted the excavation and restoration of Chaco Canyon. Alice met Daniel Jones while attending college and married him in 1933. She had two boys, Edward and Donald. They moved to Bartlesville, OK where her husband worked for Phillips Petroleum. Dan then received a teaching position at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Alice and Dan spent the next 17 years raising their sons. She returned to school and received her Master's Degree in Psychology in 1959. Alice worked for a short time teaching special education at a local Elementary school. She moved to Bakersfield, CA when Dan became the head of the Geology Department at the local college. Dan died there in 1984 and Alice moved to Albuquerque to be closer to her twin sister, Birgit. She spent 15 happy years involved with her church, St. Marks on the Mesa and going for walks with her dog, Andy. Alice was a kind, shy, caring woman who spent most of her life suffering under the dominance of men and women with more powerful personalities. She hardly complained and attended church regularly. Alice read the Bible cover to cover 13 times and each time she bought a new Bible. This helped her through suffering and helped her to forgive. I know there is a special place in the after-life for such women. Alice is survived by her son, Donald; brother, Donald Hamilton; and sisters, Birgit and Margaret. Memorial Services will be held Tuesday, May 30, 2006 at 3:30 p.m. at St. Marks on the Mesa Episcopal Church, 431 Richmond Place NE. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charitable work of St. Mark's on the Mesa, 431 Richmond Place NE. French Mortuary 1111 University Blvd. NE 843-6333

MARTIN -- Robert C. Martin was born on January 2, 1912 to Anna Bunton Martin and Henry Robert Martin in Duncan, AZ. About a month after his birth, his mother passed away, and he was given to his aunt, Elizabeth Tyson, to raise while his father worked as a cattleman and horse trader. When he was four years old, his father passed away and, thereafter, he was raised by different members of his family. While growing up, he attended schools in Lordsburg, NM, and Duncan, AZ. He graduated from high school in Miami, AZ, in 1930. After high school, he entered several business enterprises in Duncan, including a ready to wear store, a general store, and a meat market and restaurant. None of these businesses were very successful because he extended credit to everyone. In 1933, he eloped and married Ione Rose, in Lordsburg. Shortly thereafter, he and Ione moved to a cattle ranch near Red Rock, NM. From 1934 until 1978, he was actively engaged in cattle ranching near Red Rock, where he raised Hereford cattle. Whenever he had an opportunity, he purchased additional land to increase the size and capacity of his ranch. Over the years, the Martin Ranch grew to one of considerable size. In 1978, he and his wife finally finished raising cattle and sold the ranch. In 1945, Robert was elected as a director of the First National Bank of Lordsburg. In 1955, he was elected Chairman of the Board, and served in this capacity until 1995, at what is now known as Western Bank. Robert believed it was important to be active in the community. He was elected to the Red Rock school board. In 1952, he was elected to the New Mexico House of Representatives from Grant County, and served the citizens of New Mexico in that capacity until 1976. Upon his retirement from the legislature, then Governor Bruce King, appointed him to serve as a member of the New Mexico State Highway Commission. He was a member and past Master of the Lordsburg Lodge 30 AF and AM. He was elected to the Hidalgo County Cattleman's Hall of Fame in 2000. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ione, on September 4, 2004. They worked side by side, through many difficult times, and he often referred to her as "the best cowboy I ever had." He is survived by one daughter, Anna Martin Wright, of Amarillo, TX; a son, Robert C. Martin, Jr. of Silver City, NM and his wife, Marie Parrish Martin; seven grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Funeral Services will be conducted at the Lordsburg Funeral Chapel at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, May 31, 2006, with Mr. Ed Kerr officiating. Interment will follow in Shakespeare Cemetery in Lordsburg, NM, with Masonic Services. Pallbearers are Michael Martin, Clifford Wright, David Braune, Chris Purkeypile, Bill Wright, and Walt Anderson. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Western New Mexico University School of Nursing, in care of the WNMU Foundation at PO Box 680, Silver City, NM 88062.
