On the fifth day of May 1940, a baby girl was born to Cora Duff-Stephens and Roosevelt Lavender in Benevola, Alabama and they named her Aslean Stephens; however, on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, God decided that she had been with us long enough and he called Aslean home.
Aslean moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama and married Jefferson Jones (Clyde), to this union, six children were born. Wayne, Wendell, Tina, Gary, Ricky, and Trista. They also raised three bonus children from birth, Gary Jones-Hamilton, Jr., Tina Jones and Malik Jones. They later moved to Detroit, Michigan then on to Romulus, Michigan where they both remained for decades.
She had many nicknames, Football, Irene, Granny, Ms. Jones, and Eileen. She showed her love to all and anyone. Her doors and anything she had were open and given to all in the community. She was known for so much, from throwing down in the kitchen to giving the shirt off her back and a place where anyone could come lay their head. She either raised or helped raised many generations.
Aslean was preceded in death by her husband, Jefferson Jones, children; Wayne, Wendell, and Tina; four brothers Henry Stephens, Jim Stephens, Columbus Stephens, and W.T. Lavender and two sisters, Mary M. Stephens and Josephine Stephens, and sister-in-law Mary Lavender.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Gary (Barbara), Ricky, and Trista; bonus children, Gary, Tina, and Malik; brother Joe Willie Lavender of Blytheville, Arkansas; sister-in-law Loretha Frazier, Lucille Carriker and Dorothy Jones, all of Detroit, Michigan and one brother-in-law Herman Jones of Jackson, Mississippi and a host of niece and nephews, family, and friends.
