Annie Ruth Jones or "Baby" as she was lovingly called, was born on May 11, 1957 to the proud parents of Herbert Leroy Jones and Mamie Ruth Jones in Fountain, NC and attended South Edgecombe High School in Pinetops, NC. She then obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Administration from Ashford University.

Annie loved Jesus! As a young girl, she would read and teach children about the love of God. She was also very creative in orchestrating plays and skits and sewing costumes for her friends as they pretended they were in church. No surprise, to this day, she is a woman of faith.

Annie had over 20 years of experience in teaching and impacting the lives of so many children and parents. As a lead teacher, she taught them the values of the kingdom of God. Annie prepared them to grow academically and through the development of the arts. She was so talented that in 2014 she became an administrator and Director of a preschool in Raleigh.

Annie was sweet, loving, kind, humble, funny and compassionate.a true servant of God who lead by example. Annie selflessly served and was a blessing to everyone who knew her.

Annie leaves to cherish her memory: daughter Jaquetta; three grandchildren Aduare, Kayla, and Kameron; sisters Edith, Mary, Brenda, Sheila, Sandra, Angela, and Sharon; brother James; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.

We are truly blessed to have known such a Godly woman. She will be missed tremendously!
