This memorial is unedited, as written by her family: Angela Renee Jones, 53, passed on May 9, 2020 after contracting COVID-19.
Angela Renee Jones was born on January 26, 1967 in Saint Louis, Missouri. Angela belongs to a large family and an even bigger blended family. Angela was affectionately known as “Cookie” and also later as “Cook Book” and “Auntie Cookie”.
Angela was a proud graduate of Soldan High School. She kept in close contact with her fellow classmates and she loved to attend alumni events. After graduating from Soldan in 1985, Angela attended Southeast Missouri State University where she studied Accounting. She also attended Saint Louis Community College where she studied nursing. Angela earned her certification in Phlebotomy and she worked for the Saint Louis Red Cross for over 10 years. Angela always did her part to help serve others. Angela had a rare blood type and she regularly donated her blood.
Angela later worked for United Health Care Group for 13 years until she contracted COVID-19.
Angela always made the time to volunteer and serve in her community. She would often thank others for giving her the opportunity to serve.
Angela had a very full life and she was an avid traveler. Not only did Angela travel all over the United States, she traveled all over the world. Just to name a few places, she traveled to Jamaica, Belize, Dominican Republic and Cancun. She was so fearless. She never missed an opportunity to experience and travel. She was such an inspiration to so many people.
Cookie was a staple at family functions. She was always ready to help organize and put on a family function. Cookie was always there…. Graduations, Birthday Parties, Barbecues, The annual Fish Fry… Cookie was the glue to our family.
Angela never had any children of her own, however, she was a mother to so many of the children in our family. It takes a village and she certainly did her part to help raise, love and support so many kids. She sacrificed her life to others and gave selflessly. She touched so many lives. We thank God for the gift He gave to us in the person of Angela “Cookie” Jones.
Angela is dearly missed by her family, friends and loved ones. She was so special to us. Not a day goes by where we don’t have a memory of Cookie. We are so thankful for the time we did get to spend with her and all of the memories that we made with her.
Thank you for allowing us to share the life, memory and the legacy of our loved one!!
