Nellie Louise Jones entered this world on September 5, 1925 in Trenton, North Carolina, daughter of proud parents, the late Catherine Grant Jones and Charles Jones. During her youth, she joined Holly Branch Church and enjoyed singing in the choir. She later moved to Kinston, North Carolina where she became a member of St. Mark Church.

Nellie was blessed with three children: Beverly Jones, Terris Jones and Wanda Carey.

When she moved to New Jersey, she spent most of her career being a Home Health Aide at Cerebral Palsy and Eden House in East Orange. She loved people, especially children that led her early in life to work as a Day Care Worker at Mary Poppins Day Care Center in Kinston, North Carolina for over 10 years.

Nellie and her daughter, Wanda attended Heard A.M.E. Church for several years before becoming members in 2016 under the leadership of Rev. Archie Cummings, Jr.
