In Loving Memory of Sarah L. Kelley-Jones

March 15, 1927 - December 13, 2019

Sarah Lee Kelley-Jones was born on March 15, 1927 in Washington, Texas, to Louise Randall and Sim Kelley. Sarah was the middle child and matriarch of the family.

There were eight children born to the family but five died in infancy.

Sarah had a wild carefree spirit and the age of 18, she left the country life and moved to Los Angeles, California. Sarah first met and married Booker T. Floyd, this union lasted for several years. She later met and married the love of her life, Frank Jones. No children were born to either of these unions but Sarah had many who looked to her as a mother. Sarah and Frank were married for many years and shared their love and generosity with everyone they knew.

Sarah enjoyed the good life, which included her love of Cadillacs, playing cards and the horse races. Sarah was a great cook, family and friends came from far and wide to enjoy her country cooking.

In the last couple of years, Sarah again made Texas her home and relocated back to Houston, where she resided with her nephew, Roy and his wife, Faye. The family in Texas was happy to have her back, but Sarah missed her West Coast home. Sarah went for a visit over the Thanksgiving holiday and fell ill. On Friday, December 13, 2019, Sarah gained her wings and joined her beloved Frank in Heaven.

Sarah was preceded in death by her parents, her darling husband Frank, her brothers Arlenza "Mex," and Roy Sr.

Sarah leaves to mourn her passing nieces: Arlenza Loyd and Vera Daniels; nephew Roy Kelly Jr. (Faye), goddaughter Gloria, and a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
