(1949-2017)

Joy Jeanette Ledington passed away on September 16th, 2017 in Yukon, Oklahoma. Joy was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 23rd, 1949. Joy was a graduate of Del City High School in 1967. After high school she went to work as a receptionist at the Pentagon in Washington DC. She then worked as the Secretary to the Vice President at Sears Roebuck in Philadelphia, Pa. She returned to Oklahoma in 1973. She married Thomas Ledington in 1974. She stayed home to raise their two daughters. Once they were in school, she began working at the Guthrie Public Library where she worked for many years until her retirement. Her daughters, Angela and Holly, and her granddaughter, Bailey, were her pride and joy. Angela became her support system at a very early age and she was beyond thankful for the bond that they shared. She was extremely proud of Angela and all of her accomplishments in life. Joy also dedicated much of her time to being the greatest mother and supporter of her intellectually disabled daughter Holly and was so proud when Holly graduated high school. She loved watching Angela play softball growing up and then watching her granddaughter, Bailey, play softball as well. She never missed a game and was their #1 fan. Joy was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. She enjoyed crocheting, reading, attending church and singing in the choir. She was an expert at trivia and won most every game she played and had the prizes to show for it. She was preceded in death by her parents Homer and Clyde Ellen Tiller, her former husband Thomas Ledington, and her brother Dale Tiller. She is survived by daughters Angela Bruning and Holly Ledington, granddaughter Bailey Bradford (Clay), sister-in-law Chery, brother Larry Tiller (Shirley), sister Donna Sherman (Randy) and several nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 Thursday September 21st at the Bill Eisenhour Southeast Chapel in Del City, Ok.
