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.
