Mosella Jones

Born in Belzoni, Mississippi in 1915, Mosella Jones was a child of the Depression. Her survival of hard times in the south created a woman of strong faith and character. Her first marriage to Charlie Caine produced her only child, Lillie Beatrice.

In 1935 with her young daughter, Mosella moved to Chicago, Illinois where she was a member of Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church. In 1941 she met and married the love of her life, Alonzo Jones. She was a faithful wife throughout their marriage of 48 years.

Mosella's home was a way station for Mississippians moving to Chicago. She helped many make the transition from southern to northern life, providing food and shelter to friends and relatives without regard for repayment.

She was a God-fearing woman whose strong moral fiber was characterized by a genuine love of all people and unfailing faith. She was a great cook, and a wonderful hostess. She was the peacemaker in the family, always mindful of God's desire for unity and forgiveness and she taught us by example.

As a mother, Mosella was a strict disciplinarian and she helped to raise her granddaughters in the same manner. She was fiscally prudent but generous in spirit with an amazing flare for style; she loved to dress up.

Cherishing her love and memories are her daughter, Lillie Lewis, three granddaughters, Yvonne, Debi and Sallie and two great-granddaughters, Anwulika and Nwamaka and a host of cousins, family and friends.
