Deacon Anderson Jones transitioned to Heaven on Thursday, November 7, 2019, at Collinwood Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, Plano, Texas, at the age of 90. Deacon Jones was born on February 6, 1929, to the parentage of Henry Jones and Mittie Daniels. He was reared in Marshall, Texas, where he lived until 2015, at which time he relocated to Plano, Texas to live with his daughter and son-in-law, Ethel Lean and Albert Jernigan. Deacon Jones left school at an early age in order to work and help his mother financially support his younger siblings. He worked for Caddo Packing Company for over 54 years. Once he retired, he stayed retired for one week, then returned back to work part time. Deacon Jones united with Mount Moriah Baptist Church at an early age. He served as Superintendent of Sunday School for 52 years. He also served as an usher and occasionally sang with the choir. He was active as the Superintendent until his relocation. Deacon Jones loved Mt. Moriah, especially the children. He constantly received cards from the children on birthdays, Father’s Day and Christmas. Deacon Jones loved bowling but he loved fishing more. He loved telling you the best time of the day to fish and the best fishing weather. Sadly, once he moved, his opportunities to fish were limited and he told anyone in earshot that he was kidnapped and couldn’t go fishing. Once moving to Plano, Deacon Jones united with the Mount Hebron Missionary Baptist Church, Garland, Texas. He was an active member of the Senior Adult Sunday School class until he was unable to attend. Deacon Jones was predeceased by his parents; brothers, Leon Pylant, James Daniels, Robert Charles Daniels; his long-time companion, Ms. Willie B; sons, Anderson Jones, Jr. and Melvin Williams; daughter, Myrtis Abercrombie Stroger; granddaughter, Annalise Adams; grandsons, David Jones, Jr. and Jeremy DeWayne Jones.
