The Covington News - - Local News -

Mrs. Louise Jones Grier passed away March 31 at her home fol­low­ing a coura­geous strug­gle with can­cer. The daugh­ter of Leroy and Es­ther Sum­mer­our Jones, she was born in 1916 and was a life­long res­i­dent of New­ton County. She mar­ried Hu­bert Grier in 1946, and he al­ways de­clared that she was the best thing that ever hap­pened to him. They were hap­pily mar­ried un­til his death in 1998. Mrs. Grier was an em­ployee of the Bibb Man­u­fac­tur­ing Com­pany for over 25 years where she served faith­fully as a time keeper. She was a de­voted mem­ber of Salem United Methodist Church for 47 years and was a mem­ber of the Otis Nixon Sun­day School class. Mrs. Grier was a mem­ber of the Por­terdale Women’s Club and AARP Chap­ter 2265. In her leisure time, she loved to sew and cook and en­joyed trav­el­ing with the Bank of North Ge­or­gia Golden Ea­gle Club. She en­joyed grow­ing beau­ti­ful flow­ers in her yard and learned that time, love and care were the key in­gre­di­ents to mak­ing her gar­den grow. She also knew that th­ese same three in­gre­di­ents were valu­able in cul­ti­vat­ing the many friend­ships she formed in her 91 years. Her kind­ness and good­ness are an in­spi­ra­tion to all who knew her.

Sur­viv­ing are nieces Hazel Cawthon of Cony­ers, Doris Hotham and Joyce Ma­son, both of Cov­ing­ton; sis­ters-in­law Rella Mae Allen and Irene Hol­land, both of Cov­ing­ton; sev­eral cousins and a host of friends.

Funeral ser­vices were held April 2 at Salem United Methodist Church with Carol Stan­dard, Sheri Parker, Dan Paschal and Charles Kelly pre­sid­ing. In­ter­ment fol­lowed in Lawn­wood Me­mo­rial park. Flow­ers are ac­cepted or do­na­tions may be made to Salem United Methodist Church Build­ing Fund, 3962 Salem Road, Cov­ing­ton, GA 30016, or Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety, 1684 Bar­nett Shoals Road, Athens, GA 30605.
