My maternal grandmother’s youngest sister, Launie Mae, would have turned 104 today.
Here she is, not long, I think, after she moved to Bayonne, New Jersey, around 1930. She met Georgia-born Isaiah James Jones, married, and reared seven children in Jersey City.
And here, a photo taken at the first Colvert-McNeely family reunion in 1978. Sweet and funny, this is how I best remember her.
Launie Colvert Jones (20 December 1910-2 August 1997)
