The management Eddie & Jackie Nelson and the Support Staff of Nelson’s Funeral Home sympathetically announce the passing of Ms. Lydia D. Jones,46, of Ridgeway, South Carolina. 

Ms. Jones transitioned into eternity Monday, July 13, 2020, at Lexington Hospital, Lexington, South Carolina.

Lydia was born on July 3, 1974 to Tillman and Mamie Jones. Sadly, she went home to be with the Lord on July 13, 2020 at Lexington Medical Center after battling an extended illness.

Lil, as she was affectionately known, loved family, friends, and especially children.   It was nothing to come to her home and see a house full of kids.

Lydia learned to love the Lord at a very young age through her mother and family members. Lydia also attended White Oak Baptist Church where she taught Sunday school.  She was educated in the Fairfield County School System. Among her many accomplishments, was her job as a mortgage consultant. She went on to become a mother and was blessed with two beautiful girls, Indya Woods and Faith Jones.

She leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Indya Woods and Faith Jones; a special niece, Rachel Samuel. Lydia also leaves one favorite aunt, Willie Mae Durham; her sister, Vivian Lewis (James), who assisted her through all her life. In addition to Vivian, she leaves a host of other siblings which include six brothers, Tillman Jones, Melvin Jones (Shirley), Larry Goins (LaVerne), Lindsay Jones, Cheyenne Jones, and Elroy Jones (Sharon); seven sisters, Marjorie Jones, Lynn Henry, Franchis Cook, Willa Mae Goins-Bey, Gwendolyn Thomas (Theron), Angelia McKeiver, and Dolores Moore (Gary); a host of  nieces, nephews, and cousins who love her and will miss her. 

While the family would love to be surrounded by your presence, they acknowledge the health risk to family, church members, friends, and particularly to those who are most vulnerable to the disease, the elderly and those with chronic health conditions.

The family of Ms. Lydia D. Jones, in consideration of the health crisis facing our world, nation, state and local community, has decided to have a private memorial service for their love one.
