October 5, 1921 - May 12, 2021
Bertha T. Jones age 99, peacefully transitioned to be with the Lord on the evening of Tuesday, May 12, 2021, at the Future Care Nursing Home, a care facility in Baltimore, Maryland. She was born in 1921, Nanjemoy, Maryland, on a farm, to Albert and Mary Tolson. She was the youngest of five children – 4 girls and 1 boy, William, Helen, Mildred, Dorothy and Bertha. The Tolson’s were hardworking farmers and well-respected members of the community. After graduating from high school, Bertha moved to Baltimore, Maryland and attended Business School. She accepted employment as a clerk for the Social Security Administration. Bertha had a quiet demeanor and was a respected, faithful, hardworking employee until her retirement. Soon after settling in Baltimore, Bertha met and married Johnnie L. Jones, who preceded her in death. Bertha joined the Mt Moriah Baptist Church where she faithfully served until her health failed. Her brother, William (deceased), moved to Detroit Michigan, married Ruby Isabelle Baylis, and raised a family. The sisters, Helen Beans, Mildred and Dorothy moved to Baltimore to find work and to be near Bertha. Bertha loved the rural community of Nanjemoy. For many years she traveled back home to attend the annual “Family and Friends Day” at the community church and to reconnect with friends. “Aunt Bert” was a kind, caring person and a smart money manager. She loved to host family dinners for major holidays. She was known for her signature “tender roast beef and delicious cakes.” Bertha cared for each of her sisters through multiple illnesses until their transition to be with the Lord. She promised Helen she would care for her son Henry, which she did faithfully. Henry currently lives in the same facility where Bertha lived. He spent his days relaxing in her room; he will miss her. Bertha is survived by her nephew, Henry Bean of Baltimore, Maryland, a niece Martha Calloway of Mission Viejo, California, nephew John T. Tolson of Detroit, Michigan, a faithful caring cousin, Ophelia Jones of Baltimore, Maryland and a host of nieces and nephews.
