Margaret Ann (Bass) Jones

July 12, 1939 ~ September 13, 2021 (age 82)


     Ms. Margaret Jones was born July 12, 1939, in Manassas GA, Tattnall County to the late Mr. Percy Bass Sr. and Mrs. Bertha M. Bass. She departed this life on September 13, 2021, at her home in Atlanta, GA.

     Margaret was preceded in death by five brothers Walter McKinnon, James T. Bass, Percy Bass Jr., Calvin Bass and Willie Bass as well as one sister, Freddie L. Bass and a grandson, Jonathan B. Bass.

     Margaret worked as a Nursing Assistant and a childcare provider. She was a dedicated mother and daughter. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She was the Caregiver for her mother, Bertha M. Bass, until her mother’s passing. She believed that you should honor thy mother and thy father, so your days may be longer. She especially loved her role as a grandmother, and she enjoyed spending quality time with all of her grandchildren. She had a vivacious personality and always made people laugh.

     Margaret had many things that she enjoyed doing. She enjoyed cooking and baking. She will also be remembered for her famous fried chicken and phenomenal sweet potato pies. Family and friends alike would travel far and wide just to eat Margaret’s cooking. Margaret also loved family gatherings. She lived a quiet lifestyle surrounded by family.

     She always prayed for her family as God was primary in her life. She was baptized at a young age at her home church and she recommitted to God recently at her home in Atlanta, GA with Chaplain Rob Morris. May she rest in peace eternally.

     Margaret is survived by four sons, Mr. Travis D. Bass of Chester, VA, Mr. Lee A. Bass (Lorma) of Atlanta, GA, Mr. Gary S. Jones (Tracey) of Baltimore, MD, Mr. Brian L. Costen and Darlene of Evansville, IN; two daughters Janis Jones of Atlanta, GA and Michelle Jones of Houston, TX; a loving sister, Mrs. Edith Rowe (Isaac) of Fayetteville, GA and thirteen wonderful grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
