Johnnie Mae Yon

    Johnnie Mae Yon Remember that Kool-Aid commercial? You know the one where all the neighborhood kids gather at one house. That’s a great depiction of our home - the home of James Elwood and Johnnie Mae Yon. A place where you were always welcomed. A place where you always felt loved. On November 10th, 2019, Mama (Johnnie Mae) reunited with the love of her life - James Elwood. Johnnie Mae Jenks was born on June 6, 1935. She married James Elwood Yon on August 2, 1952 - one of the happiest days of her life. Johnnie Mae and James were the loving parents of seven (7) children: Janice Lilly (husband Joe), James Elwood Yon Jr., Betty Ann Horne (husband Joe), Deborah Yon (deceased at birth), Beckie Yon, Lisa Yon (deceased) & Gina Yon. Adored grandchildren and great grandchildren include: Amanda Yon-Gates, Bri Begor, James, Ja’Mez, Taye & Matthew Gates; James Daniel, Kylee, Adley & Paisley Yon; Joshua, Kristina, Benjamin & Josiah Lilly; Erica Scarborough (husband David), Kristen, Kayden & Abigail; Jared, Kimberly, Callahan & Eliza Lilly; and Caitlin Griffin. Love adoptions include Richard Burke, Jayne Parker, William Hazlewood & her beloved chihuahua Peanut. There are countless others who were blanketed by Mama and Daddy’s love throughout the years.You may have known her as Mama, Aunt Johnnie Mae, Granny, Granny Yon, Mrs. Johnnie or Mrs. Yon when she worked for the Blountstown school system. Whatever the moniker, you counted yourself blessed to be in her life. She shared her loved unconditionally and from an endless reservoir of care and compassion. She made you feel like “one of hers.” Many of you likely recall her famous Sunday dinners. Remember her fried chicken or pork chops seasoned to perfection, served with fresh vegetables right out of the garden and her sweet tea? Perhaps your favorite was one of her mouthwatering homemade biscuits hot from the oven or her delicious pound cake. Regardless of how much food there was (or wasn’t), you were always welcomed at her table. Somehow, someway, Mama always found a way to make it work. Maybe your favorite memory is shelling peas, shucking corn or making pickles side-by-side with her. Perhaps you’re reliving the moments of pure joy as she and Daddy cheered for our softball teams. Could your favorite memory be watching Jay Leno or the Atlanta Braves with her on television or simply chatting with her about life events? Whatever memory is your favorite, we hope recalling these precious moments and sharing those memories with others will bring you joy, comfort and peace as we celebrate Mama’s life. It’s our belief that Mama and Daddy are reaping the rewards in Heaven for the love they so freely gave to all of us.

Jerry gates

image22

 

Mr. Jerry Gates, age 75, of Wewahitchka, FL passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at his residence in Gulf County.  Mr. Gates was born on May 22, 1944 in Blountstown, Florida. He was cared and loved for by the late Mrs. Vina Owens, his beloved Grandmother. He was a proud graduate of Blountstown High School, where he was a star athlete for the basketball and football teams. A few of his accomplishments while at Blountstown includes a 1960 State Championship where he scored the two winning points in overtime, a record for most points scored in a game (54) which he still holds, and a whole collection of Most Valuable Player awards, All Big Bend awards, and numerous others. Upon graduation he attended the University of Florida on a full athletic and academic scholarship to continue his basketball career as a Florida Gator. This would prove to be a lifelong obsession as he went on to a Bull Gator Booster for the majority of his life. He obtained his degree with a major in Business Administration and minored in Accounting. He was a wiz with numbers! In his early life he owned and operated the Gates Fish Camp of the Dead Lakes in Wewahitchka, FL. where people from all over the world visited to enjoy the good fishing and comradery that Jerry had to offer. He was secretary-treasurer to the Dead Lakes Water Management Board for Gulf and Calhoun County. He revived the fight to remove the Dead Lakes Dam that negatively impacted the fishing on the Chipola River. He was former director of the Florida National Bank in Port St. Joe, Fl. He served as Gulf County’s Finance Director for 8 years before being elected to the Clerk of the Court in 1980. He was the first Republican to ever be elected in Gulf County. Upon retirement from the clerk of courts, he ran for Chief Financial Officer for the state of Florida. He sold half ownership of a racehorse to pay the fee. He won the primary election where he spent just $225.00, of which was his own money, for his campaign because he refused to accept a dime from even friends and family, but went on to lose the general election by a mere 1000 votes. Jerry was known for his maverick spirit, idealism and indignation for the people. The amazing story of his life and legacy could go on for pages. He is survived by his four children, Jon Curtis Gates, Patrick Gates and his wife Jennifer Wright, Ashley Gates, and Chad Gates all whom he quoted to be his “magic”; very beloved grandchildren Johonna Tran and Paislynn Gates; sister Joey Gates Walters and numerous nieces and nephews. Jerry’s memory will continue to bring joy to those who knew him. Just about anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Jerry, has a Jerry story to tell.
