Born April 22, 1935 in Pawnee, Oklahoma to Day and Wyonna (Harper) Swinford, Alma spent much of her childhood in Sperry. It was at a very early age that Wyonna married Johnny Thompson. The two exchanged vows on March 8, 1950 and spent the next 56 years together until Johnny's passing.
An entrepreneur by heart, Alma Jo loved going to garage sales and taking care of her family. She also enjoyed following Johnny around through the years and supporting him in his various business ventures. When not at work, Alma Jo could be found cooking in her kitchen or at the casino playing slots.
Alma Jo will certainly be missed by those she leaves behind. They are: her sons: Kirby Thompson and Marshall Thompson; daughter, Shelley Godsey; brother, Steve Swinford; sister, Tina Risley; grandchildren: Mark Thompson, Tim Thompson, Adam Thompson, Michelle Standridge, Derek Thompson, Tammy Shrinkski, Danny Godsey and Leann Godsey; great-grandchildren: Mark Thompson Jr., Destiny Thompson, Trent Thompson, Ashley Thompson, Kayla Thompson, Lane Thompson, Austin Williamson, Ashlyn Buffington, Madelyn Buffington, Cooper Godsey, Maya Godsey, Chasity Elias, Caitlyn Holinsworth and Callyn Holinsworth.
Alma was preceded in death by: her husband, Johnny; her parents: Day and Wyonna; brothers: Daniel and Paul Swinford and a sister, Susie Pool.
We will miss visiting with Alma, Thought of her more as an Aunt than a Cousin. Rest peacefully now. Love Hollis Harper and Family
In loving memory of aunt Jo go rest in peace
