DeLois Williams Jones, affectionately known as “Doll Baby,” was a loving servant and soldier for the Lord, wife, mother of three, daughter, stepdaughter, sister, aunt, and friend to many. She was born on October 30, 1958 to the parentage of the late David and Annie Lois Williams.
DeLois was united in Holy Matrimony to Jimmy L. Jones and to this union three children were born, Kimberly, James, and Ashley. She was employed by the Georgia Baptist Children’s Home for several years. DeLois was known for her outstanding basketball skills, her passion to teach the youth, and her amazing culinary skills. DeLois loved to sing, cook, coach, read, and be around family and friends. DeLois would go the extra mile for anyone. She was loved by many and mother to some she cherished.
