Helen Jones "Mama Jones"

February 15, 1927January 14, 2021

Helen Kathleen Jones went to be with her heavenly father on January 14, 2021.

Kathleen, a Durham County native, was born on February 15, 1927 to the late James and Rosa Moore. She was a devoted member of Swift Creek Baptist Church for over 60 years. The church was her family outside of her four daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Kathleen operated a daycare in her home for 15 years so there are several children she loved and cared for. Now as adults they still remember “Mama Jones” and her loving care.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Thomas Braxton Jones; brothers, James William Moore and James Clarence Moore Jr; sisters, Virginia Lucille House and Mary Elizabeth Woodall.

She is survived by her daughters, Ann Bartram (Bob), Kay Boyd (Roland), Sue Mustgrave (Don) and Rose Ferguson (Alfred); sisters, Melba Louise Fulghum and Edna Ruth Jones; grandchildren, Eddie Boyd (Nannette), Amy Ryan (John), Jaime Hackney (Lee), Ashely Boyd (Carrie), Scott Mustgrave, Dana Simms (David), Stephanie Howard and Michelle Lee; 9 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
