Due to health problems, it was suggested she moved to a hot, dry climate, which brought her to Arizona in the early 1960s. Mary nursed at Sells and San Xavier and was devoted to the Tohono O’odham people. They affectionately called her the ”nurse who speaks with funny tongue”. Mary’s work also took her to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she nursed with the Indian people there. In the mid 1970s she returned to Arizona and attended University, graduating with a Master’s degree in Nursing. She worked as a geriatric nurse until her retirement in 1988. Mary continued to work as a volunteer at Villa Maria Care Center. In 1996, as a result of health problems, Mary moved into an apartment at Villa Maria and later moved to the nursing home there. Mary will be remembered and missed for her spirit, caring, and storytelling. The love and prayers of her family in Scotland and Canada will go with her. Mary’s family would like to express their gratitude for the friendship, prayers, and support of her friends in Tucson. Thank you to Father Wagner and Father Moore for their assistance.

In Memoriam

Jone Sonya Meola

Passed to heaven

March 9, 1997

I am not there…

Do not stand at my grave & weep. I am not there I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumns rain. When you awaken in the mornings hush. I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave & cry. I am not there, I did not die…

We Love You Jone Meola,

Forever & a day

With all our Heart & Soul,

Unselfishly & Unconditionally

We all miss you…

Richard, Charles, Nick,

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
