Obituary

We celebrate the life and memory of Mrs. Lucenia Bealey Jones whose death occurred Monday, April 27, 2020 at her residence.

 Lucenia Beasley-Jones, affectionately known as “Lou” by her friends and family and referred to as “Cenia” by elderly sister was born on June 13, 1955 in Savannah, Georgia to the late Deacon Leroy Beasley Sr. and Mrs. Lue Reather Floyd Beasley.

At an early age she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and joined Garvin Temple Baptist Church (now Temple of Glory Community Church).  She was actively engaged in studying God’s word in Sunday School.  She later moved her membership to Canaan United Methodist Church when met the love of her life, William Horace Jones.

Lou was educated in the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools System, graduating from Robert Willie Groves High School in 1974.  She furthered her studies at Savannah Technical College.

She was briefly employed at Memorial Health Hospital; however, in 1986 she landed her dream job at Gulfstream Aerospace in the security industry and served as a Lieutenant of her squad.  After 22 years of dedicated service her health failed and she retired.

Flowers and plants were her hobby and passion.  According to Max Mullen, “a flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love“.  She strongly followed this principle and believed that if the flower is to be beautiful, it must be cultivated with love.

She enjoyed her flowers and plants.  She was especially proud of her daffodils, peace lilies, and ferns.  “Although she never considered herself as having a green thumb, she certainly did a remarkable job and was very protective of her green successes.”  She was always purchasing flowers and plants to decorate her beautiful yard and home.

She was the epitome of a selfless servant and she loved children.  She believed in helping others financially and spiritually.  Her favorite passage of scripture was the division of Psalm 91 and Psalm 116.

She was united in holy matrimony on June 15, 2002 to a handsome prince and adoring husband, William Horace Jones.  Tragedy and devastation struck her life on September 19, 2016, when William departed his earthly vessel after a courageous nine months battle with bone cancer.

After a brief illness, she departed life on Monday, April 27, 2020.

She leaves to cherish her legacy, a loving and devoted mother, Lue Reather Floyd Beasley, Garden City, Georgia; three brothers, Leroy Beasley Jr. (Colette), Savannah, Georgia; William Beasley, Garden City, Georgia, and James Alston, Charleston, South Carolina; one sister, Julia M. Pryor (Charlie) Beaufort, South Carolina; three aunts, Sarah Beasley Jones, Spartanburg, South Carolina; Evelyn Beasley, Killen, Texas,  and Martha Riley Fulton, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania;  a special caregiver, Van Wilson and two dedicated and helpful friends, William “Dooley” Johnson Jr. and Kelvin Mason, Savannah, Georgia, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
