August 7, 1923 - October 30, 2021
Rosa Lee Jones, age 98, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2021due to natural causes. She was born on August 7, 1923, in Dendron, VA to Robert and Virgie Blackwell Crawley. Rosa was educated in local public schools. She married the late Willie "Lee" Jones and into that union was born one son, Leroy. Rosa loved to love on people. She supported her family throughout life. Rosa accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. During her adult years, she attended and became a member of Zion Baptist Church, Newport News, Virginia. In later life, she often visited family members and enjoyed watching favorite television programs. Her most favorite show is the World Wrestling Federation. During her most recent years of life, Rosa was cared for by her nephew, Leon Crawley, who assured she lived independently and in a safe environment until she began to reside at the James River Convalescent and Rehabilitation Center. For many years Rosa worked at Woolworth Stores. The occupation suited her servant's heart. She believed in: "Do what's right and do what's good. Be kind and help others". The world can always use one more kind person. Her life was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — "And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ." Rosa was preceded in death by her mother and father, her only child who she loved dearly, Leroy Jones, all her siblings, Marie C. Bailey, Edward Crawley, Lilly Mae Lewis, Brewster Crawley, Odell C. Jackson, and Helen C. Williams. She is survived by two grandchildren, Michael Keith and Faith Atkinson, great-grandchildren Linwood and Ly'Anni Alston, and many loving nephews and nieces. All of whom she loved and touched deeply.
