“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4(KJV) Services for Jennie B. Jones-Jordan will be at 11:00am on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, 410 Solomon Street, Alexandria, LA. Interment will be in Alexandria Memorial Gardens.
Jennie B. Jones-Jordan affectionally (known as “Jen” and to others as “Poo baby”) was born January 12, 1955, to the union of Earl L. Jones, Sr., and Maxine of Alexandria, Louisiana. Jennie accepted Christ at an early age. She loved the Lord and loved helping her family and others. She had a big heart and would give you the blouse off her back. She was a member of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church for many years when it was on Washington Street in downtown Alexandria. She then became a member of Mount Triumph Missionary Baptist Church, Boyce, Louisiana, under the leadership of Pastor Joseph W. Franklin. Jennie was always willing to help different ministries in the church anyway she could. She was a faithful member wherever she was and was loved by all. Jennie graduated from Peabody High School in 1973. She worked at the Head Start Program driving the school van and worked in the cafeteria. She also worked at Avis Rental Car in Houston, Texas and Robinson Family Mortuary in Pineville driving cars. She also worked at the VA hospital. Jennie’s most important job during her life was when she worked at home taking care of mom and dad during their illness. We will never forget her labor of love taking care of them even when she was going through her own illness. Jen departed this life on Friday, January 14, 2022, two days after her 67th birthday in her home here in Alexandria of natural causes. She was so excited to receive all the phone calls, texts, cards and well wishes on her birthday. She told us that she was just going to relax all day and enjoy her day and she did just that. She relaxed all the way to heaven’s door. Jennie is preceded in death by her father Earl L. Jones, Sr., Mother Maxine Standfield, Stepfather, Randolph Standfield, her sister Vivian M.
