    We met at Champion Jr High school 55 years ago. Her smile was warm and inviting then as well as now. She always acknowledged the Lord as the only one to totally trust. I’m greatful to have met her. God’s Love and ours.

    Peggy and I grew up serving together at Rehoboth Temple Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. From singing in the church choirs, participating in ABYPU and Vacation Bible School, we learned the importance of a solid relationship with Christ. I will miss her kind heart, warm smile and unwavering generosity. This is not an easy “see you in the morning” to say.

    I had the best childhood that you and I shared Peggy Lee Jones.

    We had the best life that two cousins shared most of the time at your Mom’s parents home at 1398 Mount Vernon Ave., Columbus Ohio. We used to go to the first Black swimming pool two streets over from Mount Vernon Avenue. We attended the Rehoboth Temple Church of Christ at 1110 and 1111 East Long St., Columbus, OH.

    I remember after we attended the Sunday school and Sunday morning worship service I had to sit between Grandma Ludie Winbush and Aunt Elminor we either went over to Grandpa and Grandma Ludie Winbush’s house to eat food and play up and down the street and back alley at Grandpa’s plentiful garden in his backyard. We used to love to sneak down to the chicken store where they had fresh chickens in cages we would love to do that didn’t we Peggy!!!

    Of course there were sooo many stores and markets and a movie house on Mount Vernon Avenue and the night club which I can’t think of the name of it right now there where sooo many Entertainment Stars that have Blown Up Now that came to perform for us Columbus people right Peggy Lee.

    Happy Sabbath Day April 30, 2021 Cousin

    I remember when y’all used to live on Wilson Avenue in the huge apartment building that y’all said movie stars and stuff like that used to live in that building it is still standing and I always wanted to buy that building but that apartment I probably damn sure can’t afford it now with how high real estate is was a couple doors down from Ramsey‘s Food Bar I think that’s the name of that joint and on Sundays when me and my oldest sister Linda Johnson-Finch got to come over to y’all‘s house and visit and your Mom would had baked a huge coconut cake and we could eat all the cake that we wanted we were digging all in it and cake would be all on the floor where your Mom had it sitting and that was sooo much fun my Mom never let us dig in any of her food we could eat as much as we wanted but my Father always said that “waste not want not!!!”
