On November 19, 1943, God planted a rose by the name of Virginia Mae Jones to be cared for in the garden of Roxie J. Dendy and Bill Young.
The rose grew and matriculated through the Greenville County School System and further grew at Greenville Technical College where it blossomed into a degree of industrial sewing. That rose continued to grow at Enrowe Shirt Company and Dispozo Plastic.
That rose outgrew that previous garden and planted itself in Holy matrimony to Victor Jones Jr of Enoree, SC. From that union sprung up and grew many different flowers. The roses are (daughters): Laura (Eddie) Smith, Priscilla Jackson, Wendy (Jackie) Westfield, Jeanette (Rev. Derrick) Casey. The rosebuds (Sons): Kenneth (Keisha) Jackson, Van Jones and Carlvin Jones. She was also blessed with some micro roses (Grandchildren): Mioshia Casey, Prekeya Abrams, Malaya Casey, and Janaria Browning. Her blessed seedlings (Great-Grandchildren): Kentavius Waters, Aiden Barksdale, Armani Smith, and Ambresia Wicker.
She left also to cherish her loving garden memories to her siblings: Benny (Helen) Young, Jesse Young, William (Mamie) Dendy, Charles Irby, Thomas (Cherita) Dendy, Anne Todd, Martha (Sam) Hamilton, and Mary Irby; one aunt: Anne Bell Dandy, special nephews: Steven Jones and J'korrien Garner; one god-daughter Michelle (Christopher) Pearson; a special cousin and confidant Shirley Green; two god-sisters: Betty Joe Watson and Nancy Robinson; and best friend Emma Merrill; In-laws include: Lousie Glenn, Lula Mae Glenn, James Glenn, Odell Glenn and Evelyn Irby; along with caretakers: Jean Hunter, Tashua Morgan, Alveta Brown, and Anointed Care, LLC; a host of nieces, nephews; and other relatives and friends.
On Monday, April 27, 2020, God wanted a new rose for his garden, so God in His infinite wisdom and power transition her rose plant from time and placed her plant into eternity. She is now resting to the care and keeping of a merciful and gracious God. To God be the Glory for the great things he’s done.
Sacred arrangements have been entrusted to SERENITY-MURRAY MORTUARY.
