She was also a dedicated and faithful member of New Season's singing ministry.
Mother Jones loved the Lord more than anything in this world. It didn't matter who you were or where she was, she shared the good news of Jesus Christ. She loved her life and being around others. She had the best sense of humor and loved to make others laugh.
