Obituary

Joseph Augusta Jones Sr., was born on January 7, 1934 in Bruce, North Carolina to the late Juke Jones Sr. and Louise Bell. He was the first born of four siblings. He was educated in the North Carolina public school system.

Joseph affectionately known as Pops, was later joined in Holy Matrimony to the late Ammie Lee Fleming. From this union eleven children were born. In April 1963 the Jones family relocated to Boston, MA..

Pops was employed as Maintenance worker at the State Mental Hospital. He was later promoted to the position of Mass Mental Health Worker, where he worked for 30 plus years until his retirement.

He was well liked in his community and became “Pops” to all. He would go to bat for his family and friends if you were in the right. Pops was sharp right up until the end, he would often reminisce about the good old days and you could be certain that laughter would fill the room. On the flip side of this, don’t dare cross him because he would let you have it, that’s why he will always be “One of a kind”.

Pops favorite saying is: OK! THANK YOU! BYE BYE! (you would have to have known him to understand this)

Joseph (Pops) departed this life on Thursday, May 14, 2020. He is preceded in death by his wife Ammie Lee Jones, his two sons Ronald Earl Jones; Danny Earl Jones, two brothers Juke Jones Jr.; Robert Lee Jones Sr., brother in-law Willie Fleming Jr, two sister in-laws Bettie Pearl Bell; Ceola Jones.

Joseph (Pops) is survived by ten children, Winnie Mae Carter, Joseph Jones Jr., Columbus Jones (Joyce), Peggy Ann Hentley (Robert), Johnny Jones (Rita), Billy Ray Jones (Antoinette), James Kent Jones, Costella Mae Jones, Craig Jones (Dianne) all of Boston, MA and Karen Lynette Maye of Baltimore MD. One brother William Harvey Bell, daughter in-law Janice Johnson-Jones and a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Pops will surely be missed.
