She joined The Supreme Council of the House of Jacob of the United States of America, Inc. at the tender age of 8 years old, and she devoted her life to the service of the Lord, to her pre-deceased husband, Presiding Elder Walter Jones, Sr., of the same religious Faith, and to the care and proper raising of their children, Walter Jones, Jr., Virgie (Virginia) Stokes, Phillip Jones (deceased), James Jones, and George Washington Jones, Sr.
Adv. Sr. Mthr. Jones wore many holy veils during her life as a spiritual and natural Mother. She served many years as a pioneer, a spiritual guide, a missionary, a Bible School Teacher, and a matron in The House of Jacob as well as an extraordinary culinary chef both in and outside of her religion. She delighted in spreading the overwhelming joy that she held for God through her talent of tambourine-beating during many church functions.
During her early years, she served faithfully with her husband as a steadfast missionary. All the while, continuing to bring forth and faithfully nurture five children who will forever love and miss her motherly warmth and compassion.
From these offspring, Adv. Sr. Mthr. Jones was blessed with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
