Laura Lee was one of 11 children born to Emile and Aria Mayo in Bayou Teche, Louisiana. She entered this world on March 23, 1933 and departed January 16, 2020.
Laura Lee accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age at Green Chapel Methodist Church.. She remained in Opelousas, Louisiana until moving to Lake Charles and becoming a member of Warren United Methodist Church. Laura Lee married Albert Jones and to this union three children were born, Harold, Michael, and Janice.
In 1989 Laura became a member of United Christian Fellowship Ministry under the leadership of her nephew Pastor Ronald Mayo. She remained a member until the Lord called her home. Laura had a deep devotion to her family. As a young woman, Laura always desired a large family. While her children were young she worked at their Elementary School until they all advanced to Junior High School.
She was the Owner/Operator of Laura's Daycare until retiring in 1986. She never missed a school function and always volunteered for after school pickups. When United Christian Fellowship opened their child care facility, our mother worked with the children in the center. Her generous spirit and kindness knew no boundaries. Wherever there was a need and she could meet it she did.
Laura was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Wilton, Leitha, Carrie, Leonard, Lennis, Bertha, Robert , and Lou Ambers; her precious middle son, Michael Lee; two grandsons, Christopher Guillory and Noah Stamps and one granddaughter, Sha'Crista Jones.

Perkins; daughter in law, Florence Jones all of Lake Charles, La; brothers, Donald (Georgiana) Mayo of Houston, Tx. and Gilbert Mayo of Lake Charles, La.; two sisters, Anna Frederick of San Antonio, Tx. and Emmaline Winford of Lake Charles, La.; 7 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Her legacy will live on forever. She was well loved and will be truly missed.
