Georgia B. Jones Obituary

The Early Life

Georgia Mae Bennett Jones of Summerton, South Carolina entered into eternal rest on Saturday, March 26, 2022.  Georgia was born to the late John Washington and Corine Gibbs Bennett on September 6, 1938. She received her former education with the Clarendon County School system.  In her teen years she met the love of her life and after a long courtship she married Willie Jones in 1955. In 1956, they moved to Miami, Florida where they started a family.

The Miami, Florida Years

Georgia joined the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church of Carol City.  There she served as a member of the Women Auxiliary Ministry. She completed practical nurse training which served as her lifelong profession until her retirement and relocation back to Summerton, South Carolina.

The Summerton, South Carolina Years

Upon returning back to Summerton, Georgia became a founding member of the Baseball Grannies. A group of three grandmothers who restarted the youth baseball program at Summerton’s Wausau Park. Georgia was a member of the Santee A.M.E. Church and later the Briggs Chapel Missionary Baptist Church.

The Latter Years and Retrospect

For nearly 20 years, Georgia served as the President of the Bennett Family of Summerton, South Carolina family reunion. The reunion brought together family members from near and far.

Georgia enjoyed fishing, planting flower gardens, baking, and the friendly game of whisk. Her unmatched specialties were ambrosia salad, sweet potato pie, coconut custard pie and apple jelly cake. She was known to her family and their friends as the “Queen of Hearts and Diamonds”. Georgia was statuesque in heart, in sense of humor, in confidence, in generosity and in love. She will be sorely missed.
