Obituary for Beulah Jones

Beulah  Jones
Beulah Arvenia Jones was the second daughter born to William and Evelyn Rollins in Philadelphia Pennsylvania on November 12, 1930.
At 14, during the first four years of its establishment, she had the distinct honor of attending Pine Forge Institute, a Seventh-Day Adventist high school in the rural mountains of Pennsylvania. She was quite proud to be among an esteemed group of students known as "The Pioneers". She cherished the friends she gained at Pine Forge Institute and looked forward to attending many alumni weekends throughout her life.
After graduating from high school, she relocated to The Bronx in New York City and lived with family friends. She became an active youth member of Ephesus Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Harlem and fostered many friendships there that endured for life.
As a young woman, she met and married the charming, Benjamin Franklin Jones, from Savannah Georgia in 1957. Their union welcomed two daughters, Nyla Vanessa and Julie Lenora. As a mother, one of her most notable qualities was her quiet strength and her devotion to her daughters.
She further educated herself over the years through her love of reading books from politics to Interior Design and Architecture. She also loved poetry and her greatest social passion was playing Scrabble.
Arvy (as she preferred to be called), was an excellent cook and was known for her baking skills in particular. Her sweet potato pie was legendary. She was a true New Yorker. She loved NYC pizza, hot pastrami sandwiches with dill pickles, cinnamon raisin bagels with cream cheese and she kept 20 lbs. of butter in her freezer at all times. She also enjoyed watching Yankee games and she was a BIG fan of Judge Judy who is a New Yorker from Brooklyn. Arvy was also a fashionista who loved wearing exquisite hats to compliment her church apparel.
As a life well lived, Arvy was preceded in death by her husband Benjamin Jones, sister Bernice Hall and nephew William Hall. Rejoicing in her memory are her daughters, Nyla Harris and Julie Jones, son-in-law Dennis Harris, granddaughters Taylor Harris and Delia Davis and her father, James Davis, nieces Ethel Davis, Bernadette Tillman, Bernita Hall, nephew James Hall, nephew-in­
/aw Kevin Davis, a host of 2nt1 generation nieces and nephews, godson Louis Matthews and sister Kim Patterson and many dear friends. Arvy celebrated life loving and caring for family and friends but most importantly, she was a woman of faith who loved the Lord deeply.
