Teena Marie Jones Popplewell was born August 18, 1963 in Kansas City, Kansas to Harvey and Charlotte Thompson Jones. She grew up in the Drexel, Missouri area.

Teena had a close circle of friends and family. Her life was spent taking care of the ones she loved the most. Her most precious moments were with her niece, nephews, and grandchildren. She was happiest caring for others and being outdoors and enjoying lake life. To honor Teena, her family asks that you think of the things you loved most about her and hold them close to your heart. It was Teena’s last wish to spend her last days on this earth with her family. She passed away at the home of her niece Hope in Arkansas.
