Doriscene Ross-Jones was born June 26, 1931, in Rison, Arkansas, the daughter of Genoa and Ed Ross, Sr. She attended Rison Schools and finished cosmetology school in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Doriscene, affectionately known as Doris, had a great life as a young girl and often talked about her life in Rison with her mother and father. They were community-minded entrepreneurs who set an example for their children to lead a life of service. She followed her parents' example and was known as "The Penwood Road Mom" in the Beecher District because of her kindness and generosity regarding children in the neighborhood. In 1954 she married the love of her life, Candy Jones, Jr., and together they raised three children, Fred, Phyllis, and Benita. She loved her family with her whole heart. Her brothers, sisters, children, grandchildren, and every niece and nephew all knew she cared and was always honest enough to tell them the truth. Doriscene gave her life to Christ at an early age and loved attending her church, Greater Holy Temple Church of God In Christ, where she was a member for many years. As a licensed cosmetologist, she worked in her home kitchen, where many remember getting that signature press and curl. She loved crossword puzzles, writing poems, reading the dictionary and encyclopedia, and was always happy to share what she learned. She loved taking care of her family. Her love for music increased after her vascular dementia diagnosis, and amazingly, she became an even better piano player. Her sense of humor and quick-witted personality will never be forgotten. If you were around her, you were surrounded by truth, laughter, and love. She leaves to cherish her memory: husband of over 66 years, Candy Jones, Jr. of Mt. Morris, Michigan.
