In Loving Memory of Oscar Marie Jones
January 25, 1936 - December 28, 2018
Oscar Marie Jones was born in Gloster, Mississippi on January 25, 1936, to the proud parents of Oscar Anderson and Nora (Jackson) Anderson. Oscar became affectionately known as "Marie" and "Honey."
Marie was the seventh of ten children. Marie was preceded in death by her parents, five sisters: Julia, Betty, Estelle, Geraldine, and Sarah; two brothers, Joseph, and Randollo, and one daughter, Yolanda Campbell.
Growing up in a home nourished by Christian parents, Marie attended Davis Chapel Church of God in Christ under the leadership of the late Bishop Theo Davis. There she accepted Christ as her Savior. Marie attended the Amite County Training School in Gloster. She was in the marching band and played the saxophone. After graduation from high school, Marie moved to Los Angeles, California. Marie worked for Owens Illinois as a Line Selector, Quality Control Specialist, and Load Scale Operator, retiring after 30 years of service. Marie was an exceptional cook and loved to cook for her family and friends.
Marie was united in holy matrimony to John Haynie, Jr. in 1957. To that union, 3 children were born: Yolanda Campbell, John Wayne Haynie, and Suyonn Haynie. Marie loved her children and brought them up to be responsible adults and to love God. Later in life, love struck again, and Marie married Charlie Jones in 1999.
Marie loved the Lord and was a member of Nadeau Street COGIC for over 20 years under the leadership of late Elder John L. Moore. She served as the Pastor's Aide President, Bible Band Teacher, worked with the Sunday School and was a member of the choir. Marie later moved her membership to Fountain of Love COGIC, under the leadership of Elder Leon Prude. Marie was faithful to the ministry and the Lord until He called her home.

Haynie (Lynette) of Los Angeles, and Suyonn Haynie (Kim) of Dallas; two sisters: Eardell Dennis (Max) of Hayward, CA, and Fannie Evans of Los Angeles; five grandchildren: Marcus Campbell, Nakeah Ware, John C.
