Obituary for ETHEL ELIZABETH JONES

Ethel Elizabeth Jones, known by many as Ms. Ethel, Ethel Lou, Sis Ethel, Lucy, and Big E, was born September 27, 1946 in Friendship, Maryland to the late Ruth Berta Reed and William Murray Reed. Ethel suddenly left us on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. She was known mostly as a true servant of the most High God. No matter who you were, Ethel showed genuine love and care. If you had a need, she supplied it with a cheerful heart.

On April 3, 1965, Ethel married the love of her life, Frank Jones. From this union, they were blessed with two sons, Keith and Rodney. She was educated in Calvert County Public Schools and graduated from W. Sampson Brooks High School. She was employed with the Child Day Care Center at the House of Representatives in Washington, DC, where she served 25 years before retiring. There she acquired a love beyond degree for children. After retirement, she worked for Michael and Amy Tucci in their home helping them with their children, Nicholas and Rebecca. Some might say she was very stern, but Ethel believed in order, ai1d she believed that children need to learn to respect their elders and others.

At the age of 10, Ethel attended Ward's Memorial United Methodist Church in Owings, Maryland. She joined Ward's Memorial under the leadership of Pastor Frank Chambers and named a loyal and committed servant.

Among her many accomplishments and contributions to Ward's Memorial and the community, she served as the chairperson of the Staff Parish Relations Committee, member of the Ushers ministry; Dance ministry; Choir ministry; Ward's United Methodist Women; and a devoted her of W.A.R. (Women Anointed for Righteousness). She was seen and noted for her generous hospitality. She supported every service, children events, ministry activities not only in the church, but any community church as a whole with her time, talents, and gifts.

Ethel loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest, bringing much joy to family, friends, and strangers alike. She loved to travel, shop with all her coupons, sing, dance, give, give, and give, serve, serve, and serve.

Ethel leaves to cherish her memories; her husband Frank Jones; two sons; Rodney Jones (Doreen), and Keith Jones. One sister Ruth "Diddle" Long; one brother William "Bubba" Reed; mother-in-law Earlene Booze; sister-in-law Martha Janey; two brother-in-laws, Robert Ray (Helen), and Jimail Jones (Terhya); three uncles, John Gray (Cozette), Edward Gray (Lilly), and Lambertine Jones; two aunts, Josephine Pratt and Margaret Gray; two grandchildren, Tavon and Jerrell Jones; four great grandchildren Jeremiah, Josiah, Malik, and Caden; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
