DEACONESS LYDIA JANE JONES
Sunrise April 25, 1936 - Sunset May 13, 2017

The Jones, Diggs, Ammons, Dunbar, Brown and Johnson families announce with deepest regret the home-going of Deaconess Lydia Jane Jones, our awesome and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin in her 81st year.  This event occurred at 2940 Williams Farm Drive, Dacula, Georgia, 30019 USA after a period of illness on May 13, 2017 at about 12:37 am with her children at her side. She was born unto the late Paul F. Jones and Jeannie Johnson-Jones in Harrisburg, Montserrado County, Liberia, West Africa;  on April 25, 1936 as the second child.

Lydia accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior at an early age and she grew up in a Christian home. Lydia was a faithful member of the International Christian Fellowship Ministries of Atlanta, GA. She was ordained as a Deaconess in the late eighties and she served as Mother of the Year for five consecutive years as well as a faithful Choir member. One of her favorite Psalms is Psalm 116:12-14…and one of her favorite songs is “Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah”.

Lydia,  affectionately called “SISTER” by many,  is survived by her devoted son: Glardeya Sylvester Diggs (Jartu) of Dacula, GA, three daughters: Doye Jones-Sarnor of Monrovia, Ellen Jones of Snellville, GA and Naniee Jones- Stubblefield (Simeon) of Jonesboro, GA; other children,  many grandchildren including, Lamartei Diggs (Ashlea), Sylvette McDuffie (Robert), Samasen Diggs-Hampton (Antonio) Tonia Diggs, Lovetee Cooper, Roseline Jones, James Jones, Jonathan Jones and many great-grandchildren including ; Isaiah, Sinai, Dewon, Blessing and Raven,  her brother, Rev. T. Kona Jones, nephews, Cllr Marcus R. Jones, Numehn Dunbar, Joseph Dunbar, Jr., Billy Dunbar, Sama Dunbar and nieces, Ellen Croswell, Emily Dunbar-Meh, Marlene Brown, Hazel Dunbar-Dunn and cousins including Rev. Victoria Gooding-Harris and other relatives and friends in Liberia and the United States of America. May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in perfect peace.
