Anna Mae (Avery) Jones, aged 90, of Edgewater MD, passed away Friday, March 22, 2019, at the Mandrin Chesapeake Inpatient Care Center, Harwood, MD.

A life-long resident of the Annapolis area, Mrs. Jones was born December 31, 1928, to the late Josephine Christiana and Harvey Elroy Avery. After graduating from Annapolis High School in 1946, she worked at several Annapolis businesses before starting her career at Coca-Cola on West Street. Following her retirement from Coca-Cola, she volunteered, for over 20 years, at the Southern District office of the Anne Arundel Police Department. A member of Riva Trace Baptist Church, she was a dedicated and loving caregiver to many grateful family members. She enjoyed nothing more than hosting large family get-togethers and was known for sharing cookies and candy with all her loved ones.

Mrs. Jones was predeceased by four brothers, Gerald, Elzey, Carl, and Fred Avery; two sisters, Joann O'Brien and Cleo Ricks; her first husband Lawrence Clow; and her second husband George ("Tommy") Jones whom she wed on October 24, 1986.

She is survived by two sisters-in-law, Cara Avery of Ridgely, MD and Sally Avery of Centerville, GA; three cousins, Allen Avery of Shady Side, Everett Moreland, and Betty Rae Gott, both of Harwood; nieces Betty Ann Sisson, Carla Avery, Kim Ward, Christy O'Neal, Cathey Dukes, Diane Gautier, and Darlene Stone; nephews Mike, Don, Ken, and Bruce Avery, Mark and Glen Jenkins, Fred Avery Jr., and Dale Carpenter.

Growing up on Cornhill Street, Annapolis, my mom, Barbara Simmons (née Hooper) had two best friends: Clara Caldwell [spelling?] and Anna Mae Avery. It was Clara who serendipitously introduced Dad to Mom.

But it was Anna Mae with whom Mom remained close throughout her life.

My mom died unexpectedly in January 1997. The night before she lapsed into a coma while in the hospital, it was Anna Mae with whom she had a jovial conversation via telephone.

Mom was one to send letters and birthday cards. After she passed, I would send a card with a note to several of the people on her list. Anna Mae's birthday was New Year's Eve. In addition to a mailed card at Christmas and a week later, in some years, I would also call her up and speak with her, usually beginning with "Is this my girlfriend?"

(That was a joke begun by my parents, I think because as a child, my instinct was that Anna Mae was such a bright spirit, and I was immediately fond of her.)

For many years, she'd send me a Christmas card. As they had had the same teachers, it was strange to see handwriting so similar to my mom's!

In the years since my mom's passing, I got to visit Anna Mae at least twice at her Edgewater home, once with my older brother, Bob Simmons. I believe Bob, who remained in Anne Arundel County for his adult life, had visited her at least a few other times when he found himself in South County.

As a child, I remember visiting Anna Mae's widowed mom--forever known as "Mrs. Avery"--on Prince Georges Street?--in downtown Annapolis while Mom was about a block away at the (old) Salvation Army in her Home League meeting on Tuesday evenings.

At some point, Anna Mae would come home from her job at Coca Cola, but soon it'd be time to pick up Mom and we'd go--Dad, Bob, Bill, and I.

May Anna Mae be at peace and enjoying her closeness with Jesus. I don't probably think they are using the term "H*ll's Pointers" up there, although I do believe God has a sense of humor, but I hope she has reunited with her folks, Tommy, old neighbors, and friends like my mom and dad.

She sure was a good friend to my family and is missed.

Both my brother Bill and I are saddened at her passing and not learning of her service until afterward.

From the family of Elizabeth Dove, we send our deepest sympathies to your family. My mother loved Anna Mae dearly. It does give me peace to know they are enjoying each others fellowship once again with our Lord in Heaven. We are so thankful my mother had such a great friend in Anna Mae. God Bless your family.
