Obituary for GERALDINE E. GRAY

Geraldine Elizabeth Jones Gray peacefully departed this life on Friday, August 17, 2018 at
her home surrounded by family. She was born on October 21, 1933 to the late Mary
Belle Brown and Hamilton Milton Coates. She was raised by her mother, grandmother
Lena Victoria Morsell Jones and step-father Wilford Brown.

Geraldine was educated in the public schools of Calvert County, Maryland and was a
graduate of Brooks High School Class of 1951. Upon graduation she attended and
obtained her cosmetology license from Martha Washington School of Cosmetology in
Washington, D.C. For many years she was a beautician until becoming a private caregiver
for her mother and others.

Geraldine was united in holy matrimony to the late Cornelius Fairfax Gray on August 28,
1953. From this union they had two daughters, Deborah and Fredericka.

Although Geraldine grew up in Calvert County, she resided in Washington, D.C. for 30
years, before returning to Calvert County to build her home on the Gray's Estate in 1996.
Geraldine gave her life to Christ and became a member of Plum Point United Methodist
Church. She was a past Worthy Matron of Rainbow Chapter No. 28 O.E.S.P.H.A. Order
of the Eastern Star, District No. 6 of the Jurisdiction of Maryland.

Geraldine loved cooking, baking cakes and homemade rolls. She loved watching
wrestling with her two brother-in-laws; Edward and John Gray and their wives. She was
always up for a good card game and love to have family and friends visit to share a meal
with her.

Her departure from this life leaves a void that only God and wonderful memories can fill.
She leaves to cherish her memory two devoted daughters Fredericka Gray and Deborah
Emerson; grandchildren, Yoland Kent and James Kent III; great grandchildren, Dachele
Kent and Lakia Kent; great-great grandchildren, Aja Codjia and Grants Bock; god children
/ Diane King and LeifLeif and Steven Rice; brother Wilford Brown, Jr.; sister Romelia
Rucks Cunningham, brother-in-laws Lambertine Jones and Edward Gray; sister-in laws
Florence Gray and Barbara Brown; aunts Juanita Jones and Corina Jones; son-in-law
James Kent, Jr.; special play daughters, Diane Estep, Chana Turner and Valerie Davis;
Dannie Johnson who she accepted as a son she never had and a host of nieces, nephews,
cousins and friends.
