Mrs. Lynette Moore Jones (“Nette” or “Momma Bear”), 82, of Orlando, Florida formerly of Port St Lucie, Florida, passed away quietly on July 10, 2021.
Lynette was born March 20, 1939 in Abbeville, Wilcox County, Georgia to Elijah and Essie Mae (Fuller) Moore. Reading, traveling, cooking, sewing, quilting, and spending time with family and friends gave her the greatest enjoyment.
Lynette served as a registered nurse and later as a Northwest Airline employee. She met the love of her life at Northwest, Charles Leopold Jones, who preceded her in death after 37 years of marriage.
She is survived by her beloved and devoted children Vanessa Roussel, Curtis Balom II; sons-in-law Norman Roussel, Sven Seger; beloved grandson Wynton Roussel; beloved mother, Essie Mae Moore; beloved sister Iris Tisdol; devoted stepdaughters Bettie Cottrell, Michelle Jones-Pate; devoted stepsons Michael Jones, Thomas Jones; brother-in-law Richard Jones; a loving step-family of grand- and great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews; and a loving extended family.
For herself, she loved the pursuit of learning and valued self-reliance and self-discipline. With family, she loved sharing her skills through caring for them. She was a perfectionist with generosity, whether planning huge, multi-generational family meals or providing sage advice and unselfish support. Being on her list of people to receive quilts or baked goods was a gift no one would ever forget.
Losing her leaves us with deep heartache. She was tremendously loved and will be dearly remembered.
