Mrs. Rosa M. Jones-Coley was born July 12th, 1936 in Letohatchee, AL. to the late Johnny and Lugenia Jones. She confessed Christ at an early age under the pastoral guidance of Rev. Josh Dupree.
Rosa was a dedicated worker at Flowers Bakery for many years. When her tenure ended she remained a dedicated mother, grandmother, and aunt. Known to many as "Dut," she enjoyed occasionally dressing hair, cooking, and caring for others until she no longer could.
Mrs. Coley is preceded in death by her parents: Johnny and Lugenia Jones; loving sister: Laura Davis; and a loving brother: Johnny Jones, Jr.
She leaves to cherish her beautiful memories, two children: Rosemary Coley and Bobby Coley, both of Montgomery, AL; three loving siblings: George (Mary) Jones of Montgomery, AL, Annie (Freeman) Shield of Detroit, MI, and Rebecca (Wash) McCall of Copley, OH; devoted and loving nieces and nephew: Irma Rogers, Luvenia Givner, and James Davis, all of Montgomery, AL.
During her 84 years of life, God blessed her with the joy of ten grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by her devoted friend Rosie Jackson, Hazel (Frank) Jones, and a host of other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
