Annie Signora Crawford Jones / May 14, 2020

Annie Signora Crawford Jones, formerly of Crawford Road, Halifax, died Friday, May 8, 2020. Born March 9, 1937, she was the daughter of the late George Dewey Crawford and Annie Laura Pounds Crawford, and was the widow of Alvin L. Jones.

She considered her years in funeral service as the greatest honor of her life, where families entrusted her with their loved ones, which enabled her to meet many people who became family and friends.

Survivors include her son, David Valentine, a kind and exceptional son (Deborah); a loyal daughter and confidante, Sharon C. Graves; grandsons, Josh and Devin; The Valentine Family; her siblings, a loving and doting sister Jackie Smith, two brothers who gingerly loved her, Sam Walton and Jimmy Walton; three aunts, Gwen Horne, Dorothy Evans and Jean Estwick. Annie is also survived by an adoring and faithful god-daughter, Deborah Clark Powell; her special and close cousins, Emily Griffin, Vivian Clark and Amelia Hamilton; other god-children who she dutifully supported in their rearing, Cece Jones Davis and Lele Jones Sneed, Princetta Williams, Tashi Screen and Etang Pugh; her Bestie and Guardian Angel, Katie Williams; her cherished and devout relative, Brenda Clark Richardson, who was diligent and faithful in her well-being; her mentee, Karen Graves Medley; her “special” angel, Don Graves; her college roommate, Jackie Lavoeing; along with many other relatives and friends.

At her request, there will be no funeral.

Those wishing to give memorials are asked to consider her beloved Banister Hill Baptist Church, Halifax.

“Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.”
