June 23, 1942 ~ January 24, 2024 (age 81) 81 Years Old


Shirley Ann Jones was born on June 23, 1942 in Houston, Texas to Esther and Oliver Jones.  She was raised in the Oates Prairie community and educated in the Houston Independent School District, attending E.O. Smith and Wheatley High School.

In 1963, Shirley graduated from Espinola Beauty College where she pursued a career as a licensed cosmetologist.  For 35 years, she worked in this field and made numerous friends.

 At a young age, Shirley joined Mount Calvary Baptist Church.  Prior to her health failure, she attended regularly.  Later in life, she joined New Providence Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. R.A. Minifee.

Shirley had a very unique way with words.  There was never a moment in her presence that one wouldn’t be intrigued by the things she would say.  She loved spending time with her family, listening to Judge Judy and game shows.

On January 24, 2024, Shirley entered into eternal rest.  Her precious memory will be cherished forever by her loving daughter, Paula Alexander; granddaughter, Tyewaniequekya Kelley (Desmone); great-granddaughter, Teiondreia Kelley; life-long companion, Robert Mason; god-daughters, Vivian Shelvin (Paul) and Treava Paul; bonus daughter, Peggy Craft; BFF’s, Gloria Terrell and Tonia, and a host of other relatives and friends who will truly miss her.
