Obituary for GLADYS MELVILEE JONES

Gladys Melvilee Jones, affectionately known to all as Melvilee, was born on October 21, 1939 to the late Clarence Lincoln Hall and Mildred Rawlings Hall in Paris, MD. She departed this life on Sunday, March 6, 2016, at her residence, surrounded by her loving husband and children.

Melvilee attended the public schools of Calvert County, MD. Upon completion of school, on July 6, 1957, she married the love of her life, Joseph Edward Jones, Sr. From this union, eleven children were born. Melvilee cared for and cherished the ground her children and grandchildren walked on. She spoke with each of them daily. There was absolutely nothing she would not do for any of them. In fact, a number of her children’s friends became her children. They respected and loved her as their mother away from home. Melvilee was also a woman that would help anyone she could. As a housewife for the majority of her adult life, she was able to help some of her friends with running errands, attending their doctor’s appointments and visiting stores. She would always lend a helping hand. And just to let you in on a secret, Melvilee loved money. Her children could always get a “piece of money” if they needed it. But, her husband didn’t have much luck, at all.

Melvilee was a good cook and always cooked from scratch for her family. You could always count on her making her award winning potato salad and salmon cakes. Her girls could always call her up to get a recipe and suggestions how to prepare certain dishes. She also enjoyed holiday celebrations and weekend family gatherings. Melvilee really enjoyed quality time with her family.

Melvilee was a long-time member of St. Edmond’s United Methodist Church. There, she served as an at-large member of the Church Council. She enjoyed good singing, preaching and Wednesday night bible studies, when her health permitted. You could also count on seeing “Sis. Melvilee” stepping through the doors, generally 30 minutes before start of service, sporting a fancy hat and a smile. She had such a quiet, sweet spirit, and truly enjoyed praising God. She may have been a woman of few words, but she had enormous faith. Sis. Melvilee reaffirmed her faith and was baptized at the North Beach pier on July 17, 2011, alongside her husband.

Although faced with a number of health ailments, Melvilee was a woman that never complained. Until the day she took her last breath, she reminded us all that she knew the Lord was in control. Regardless of what she was going through, if you inquired as to how she felt, her response was always, “Pretty good, thanks to the Lord.” Her faith never wavered. There was no battle she would not fight. There was no giving up, nor giving in. With her husband and family beside her, Melvilee’s battle was won!

Melvilee leaves to cherish her fond memories: Husband: Joseph Jones, Sr.; children: Andrea Crump (Bernard), Diane, Joseph Jr., Dwayne, Cheryl, Tony (Sherlyn), Sterling, Sharvon, Rochelle, LaShawn, and Donte; grandchildren: Stevie Stepney, Barry Moore, Destiny Jones, Orlando Jones, Rhodesia Jones, Michael Waters, Marcus Sims, Janae Barnes, DeVonte Weems, Devin Gantt, Sterling, Jr., Trevon Howard, Tyrell Howard, LaShonda Gantt, great grandchildren: Amya Jones, Aliyah Waters, Amiyah Waters, Orlando, Jr., Stevie Joyner, Demari, Justice and Liam Stepney, sisters: Thelma Hall, Ella Mackall and the late Deborah Hall, brothers: Clarence Hall, Jr. (Lorraine) and Jackie Berry (Lisa); aunts: Dorothy Jones, Beatrice Holland and Laura Kyler; uncle: Otis Holland; special sisters in law: Toreno Wortham and Audrey Jones; long-time best friends: Theresa Booth and Thelma Howard and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
