Elodia Jones

Obituary of Elodia Louise Jones

It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Elodia Louise (Taylor) Jones, on May 22, 2020.  She was blessed to pass away peacefully in her Holt, Michigan home with her daughter, Elodia Garnett Perry and family, at her bed side.  A life so beautifully lived deserves to be so beautifully remembered.  Elodia earned her Master’s in Counseling from Eastern Michigan University.  She retired from the State of Michigan as a supervisor after many years of service, and remained active as a real estate broker and counseling at-risk youth.  Raised in the Lord, she was a faithful member of the Seventh-day Adventist community for over 50 years; of which she was an elder since 1982 and treasurer for over 30 years.  Elodia was an amazing woman of God; a missionary who enjoyed traveling the world spreading the Gospel.

Born on July 11, 1928, to George and Anita Taylor, Elodia was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Clarence Jones; beloved son, Jesse Lewis Jones; parents (aforementioned); sisters, Eva Mae Brooks and Naomi Taylor; and brothers, Richard, Donald, William, Vernon and Max Taylor.  She left to cherish her memory, sisters, Anita Taylor, Lorna Moore, Barbara Wilson and Judy Jackson; brother, Ronald Taylor; her daughter Elodia Garnett-Perry, foster children Stephenette Tolbert-Cooper, Evelyn Johnson, Larry Johnson Sr., Gregory and Zamantha Hampton, Barrington “Barry” Walker, Gerard Mauzé, MikeTerrell; and grand, great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Although Elodia will be dearly missed, her loved ones take comfort in remembering how she lived her Christian life as an example for all to follow.
