Obituary for Louise Jefferson

The Jefferson family is sad to announce the passing of a loved one.

Louise Jefferson was born on August 12, 1928 in Sylvester, GA to the late Anna and Ulyese Davis. She was 2nd of 13 children. After many years of failing health, she fell asleep in death on November 12, 2019.

She was preceded in death by her two sisters: Leanna (late Elbert) Johnson and Sarah (late Eddie) Redmon; five brothers: John Henry Davis, Mike (late Claudine) Davis, Ike (Vaunzie) Davis, Johnny Will (Ella) Davis and Ezekiel (Carolyn) Davis.

July of 1948, Louise married Willie D. Thomas. In that union six children were born: Oscar (Peggy) Thomas, Alonzo Thomas, Willie David (Annie) Thomas Jr., Ruby (Mike) Thomas, Mike Odell Thomas and Eddie Lee “Billy” Thomas.

Louise was educated at Shingler Elementary School and Oak Hill High Schools in Worth County. She worked in the Dougherty County School System as a cook for many years.

On September 11, 1954 she was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in New Orleans, Louisiana. She loved telling the story of how eager she was to share Bible truths with others. She said, “I went straight to my family first. I talked to them so much until some would hide from me when they saw me coming.” However, she didn't give up. Her parents and ten siblings eventually embraces her new found faith. Just being in her presence, it was evident she cared about your spiritual welfare, which left us feeling spiritually energized. Throughout many trials, her faith never wavered. She was gentle, yet firm, kind, peaceable and positive even when situations were grim. Louise truly loved teaching others about Jehovah. She touched many lives.

Nearly fifty years ago on December 27, 1969, Louise married the love of her life AJ Jefferson. With that union she became the proud and happy stepmother of Mary Jane, Nelson, Gwendolyn, Janet and Wade.

She is survived by her loving husband: AJ Jefferson; three daughters: Mary Jane Jefferson, Gwendolyn Bradley, Janet (Dave) Geil; two sons: Nelson Jefferson, Wade (Tina) Jefferson; one brother: Ulyese (late Queen) Davis; four sisters: Minnie Pearl (George) Young, Helen (late Steve) Booker, Earlene (late William) Solomon, Barbara (Willie) Johnson; a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends

Condolences

I am very sorry to hear about the death of our loved one. Death is never easy, in fact at 1 Corinthians 15:26 death is described as our “enemy.” Yet the bible does offer hope at Revelation 21:4, ‘he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. The former things have passed away.’ Sister Jefferson is a spiritual matriarch and I look forward to seeing her happy and healthy again.

My Aunt Louise and I talked and she wanted to make sure I knew the story of how and why she became a Jehovah’s Witness and I realized how much we all owed her for being the one to lead so many to the truth, I loved her for it. Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”​—Ps. 34:18, “
