in a car accident on May 7, 2024, in Waldorf, Maryland. Until his mother’s death, Daunte was his mother’s shadow. When you saw

Mechanic. Daunte had multiple hobbies throughout his short life. He loved to read books on various subjects and biographies. He would often get annoyed because he said, “we as a society don’t read enough.” Early in his life he enjoyed cheering on the Washington Redskins, now Commanders with his mother and brother. In recent years he developed a love for going to the recording studio. He recorded
several songs that captured his grandmother Lenora’s ear and touched her heart. He especially enjoyed spending time with his beloved girlfriend, Alexis Austin and
travelling with her. Daunte accepted Jesus Christ at an early age; in 2016 he recommitted his life to the LORD at his mother’s Memorial Service. As a child he attended Free Gospel Deliverance Temple with his Family. He also attended weekly Church School at First Baptist of North Brentwood with his “devoted” Uncle Charles. Also, as a teenager and adult he attended Sword of the Spirit Ministries with his
grandmother Lenora. Daunte was looking forward with excitement to welcoming into the world his first child, daughter Malayah Butler with his girlfriend Alexis in June. He was
anticipating spending his life with Alexis and raising their child. Daunte was preceded in death by his Mother Keisa M. Diggs and Great grandmother Loleta M. Moore (GG).

Henry Jones JR - April 17, 1949 - February 12, 2024

Departed: 02/12/2024 (Washington)
Obituary Preview: On Monday, February 12, 2024, Henry Jones, Jr., (age 74), surrounded in spirit by his family's immense and powerful love, gained his Heavenly wings. Henry “fought the good fight, finished the
race, and kept the faith” as he transitioned peacefully to be with the Lord and our ancestors. Henry, affectionately known as “Tick” was born in Jacksonville, NC, on April 17, 1949—he acquired his nickname during his early teenage years because of a mole on his neck that resembled a tick,
which eventually went away. He was the fourth child (of eleven children) of the late Henry Jones, Sr. and Julia Mae Saunders Jones. Henry spent most of his childhood growing up in the Dreadnaught community of Richlands surrounded by his parents, grandfather, brothers and sisters, cousins, and
many caring adults. Henry attended segregated Carter G. Woodson Elementary School in Richlands, NC, and
Georgetown High School (GHS) in Jacksonville, NC (the only black high school in Onslow County). However, during his high school career, he transferred to (and graduated from, in 1967) Richlands
High School (RHS), shortly after the school was integrated. As one of the oldest children, Henry often took on lots of responsibility. As a teenager, Henry (along with his brother Harold Stanley) would make extra money to help support the family by shining the shoes of local Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base. He would sometimes work so
long that he had to walk home, in the dark, fifteen miles from Jacksonville to Richlands. After graduating from high school, Henry moved to Washington, DC where he lived for a short period of time with his sisters Barbara and Carol. He later moved to New York at the urging of his cousins. Once in New York, Henry landed a job with American Express. He often shared stories about how he sometimes rode the subway with briefcases of money handcuffed to his wrists. He
enjoyed the adventure. In 1969, Henry was drafted into the United States Army. A kind and peaceful man, Henry would often say that had his mom and dad not been alive at the time, he would not have gone into the Army to fight an unjust war. He served his country as 83 A 10 Printers Apprentice (PVT E-1) during
the Vietnam War.
On December 25, 1970, Henry was honorably discharged from active-duty military service. After a brief stay in Richlands, he returned to Washington DC where he enrolled in Federal City College (known today as the University of D.C.). Henry had several jobs over his lifetime. However, he had a long career working for the United States Postal Service (USPS), where he retired after 25
years of service. Soon after moving back to DC, in 1974, Henry met his one true love, D.C. native Audrey. Henry and Audrey were later married on June 6, 1984. From their union, they had three children, LaTanYa DanYail Jones Jeffers, Dominique Julia Jones, and Christol Glaciia Holton-Jones. Henry was a deeply loving kind, caring, and devoted husband and father. When he wasn't working, or partying with his wife (they loved to dance), he filled his days caring for his daughters, his daughter’s friends,
and his nieces and nephews. He was a father figure to many. In his free time, he loved playing pool and is known for integrating the local pool hall. He was known as a pool shark and has even won many competitions. He also had a love for art, music, cars, sports,
and the lottery. Pre-pandemic, playing pool and playing the lottery was a part of his daily routine. During and post-pandemic, Henry’s health prevented him from doing too much. So, Henry spent his days at home with his wife. He shared with family members a spiritual devotion and prayer from The Daily Bread. He also enjoyed his regular music sessions, where he’d go through his playlist, and would reminisce about the good-ole days. And, of course, he spent lots of time FaceTiming his grandchildren, and would make them smile by saying, “I need a hug.” Henry gave so much of himself to this world and his family. Though he had some health challenges, in his final days, Henry never
complained of his circumstances and kept a fighting spirit. To continue his lifelong love and affection, Henry is survived by his wife of 40 years, Audrey Francis Teasley Jones (Washington, DC), his mother-in-law, Christine Teasley (Landover, MD); his three daughters: LaTanYa DanYail Jeffers (Marc) (Capitol Heights, MD), Dominique Julia Jones (Anthony) (Washington, DC), and Christol Glaciia Holton-Jones (District Heights, MD); four granddaughters: Raven LaShay Jeffers (Michael) (Washington, DC), Audra Rae Peoples, Aubree Rose Peoples, and Ava Reese Peoples (Washington, DC); a grandson, Marc Sterling Jeffers (Washington, DC); a great-granddaughter, Myka Riley Thompson-Harper (Capitol Heights, MD). He
will be missed by his brothers Leon Ray Jones (Barbara) (Washington, DC), John Everette Jones, Sr. (Sandra) (Washington, DC), Randy Kane Jones (San Diego, CA), Thomas Teasley (Los Angeles, CA), and Tyrone Teasley (Anne) (Greensboro, NC); his sisters Della Woodson Davis (Ernest) (Jacksonville, NC), Carol Jones-Ali (Washington, DC), Evelyn N. Randall (Donnie) (Bowie, MD), Robin Robinson (Lanham, MD), and Trina Burns (Andie) (West Virginia); his aunts, Esther Jones (Waterbury, CT) and Irene Williamson (Jacksonville, NC); as well as numerous nieces, nephews,
cousins, relatives, and friends who will forever cherish the memories created together. Henry was preceded in death by his parents Henry Jones Sr and Julia Mae Saunders Jones; his sisters
Barbara J. Moore and Hannah S. Smith; his brothers Lenwood E. Saunders and Harold Stanley Jones. Henry was a beloved husband, son-in-law, father, grandfather, great-grandfather brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. He was known for his dedication to helping others. He touched the lives of many and unselfishly gave of his time and love. May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may his memory
continue to inspire and uplift us all.

Noel Grace Tellington - November 17, 2005 - December 06, 2023

Departed: 12/06/2023 (Washington)
Obituary Preview: Noel Grace Tellington, affectionately known as "Noie" and Princess Grace" to family and friends, was granted her angel wings on December 6, 2023 and went home to be with the Lord. Noel was born on November 1 7, 2005 and her struggles began in 2006 after an unexplained neurological brain injury. Part of Noel's rehabilitation included placement in treatment foster care, where the family worked with healthcare providers as a team. Despite all her diagnoses and needs, we were told that she would not be around much longer and there was a DNR. But God had other plans!
We welcomed Noie into our home and hearts in August 2006, with the support of Mento Maryland Network.
We fell in love with Noie on sight and on November 17, 2007, We formally adopted Noie with the blessing of her loving grandmother, Gail Phillips, who preceded her in death.
Noie attended Pre-K at Central Elementary School in Jackson, NC, where she was surrounded by wonderful teachers and a supportive staff who stimulated her and provided learning activities and field trips. After having a number of surgeries and completing rehabilitation, Noie was home schooled for several years. She did well in the home school environment with her teachers and she was eventually promoted to Conway Middle School and then to Northampton County High School.
Whenever possible, Noie attended Elm Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Aulander, NC and First Baptist Church of Colerain in Colerain NC, with her parents. Noie leaves behind many incredible caregivers who provided years of support that enhanced her quality of life. Noie's love extended to wonderful aides, such as Miss Gloria and Miss Williemae. There is a special place in our hearts for Noie's favorite nurse, Monesha, because of her unwavering dedication, love and support for Noie and her family. We could always call or send a message to "My Chart" and someone would answer! Noie will also be missed by all of her special caregivers at UNC Children's Pediatric Neurology Pulmonary Medical Complex and Rehabilitation. Noie always received special care from the social workers at the hospital, Cap C
Jordan Management, Prompt Care Oxygen and Respiratory Supplies, and from Aveanna for medical and feeding supplies. Princess Grace always got what she needed. Noie also had her very own stylist, Cheniquat, who kept her hair gorgeous! All of these special people, and those who are too numerous to mention, provided Princess Grace with love and dignity during her life and also at her passing.
Noie is survived by her loving parents, Milton and Denise Tellington; four sisters - Maria, Bridget, Paris and Ratonya; three brothers — Tyrone, Jordon and Dwayne; one brother Aaron and one sister Michelle who preceded her in death; four aunts — Gwendell Charles, Sherry Rawls, Terry and Wendi Phillips, and a host of other relatives and friends.

fixed, they would look for Sam. Sam had a love for music. He was always with his boombox and cassette tapes. Sam loved cars, family, smoking cigarettes, listening to music, and driving. He was famous for popping up on family, especially when someone was cooking. He was known
throughout the family as a disciplinarian with a unique sense of humor.
