Mary Louise Jones was born in Pachuta, Mississippi to Wade and Lethia Jordan on August 3, 1928.  She went home to be with the Lord on May 14, 2022.

Mary accepted Christ at an early age and walked in His grace.

Mary was a big fan of basketball and could talk about the games with the best.  Mary also loved to go to garage sales on the weekends.  Most of all, Mary loved children.  Be it her sons, grandchildren, grand nephews, or great-grandchildren,  she loved them all dearly.  Mary also served as a foster parent.
