Leberta Pickett Jones was born June 26, 1939 to Mr. Alex Pickett and Mrs. Lillie M. Pickett. Leberta gave her life to Christ at an early age and served diligently in Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church and was a member of the choir until her health failed.
Leberta was always there to help anyone in need and always had a smile to greet you. She loved the Lord and on Sunday, October 13, 2019 God dispatched his angels to bring her to her eternal home.
Leberta was preceded in death by her loving parents: Mr. Alex Pickett and Mrs. Lillie M. Pickett; one sister: Corine Pickett; four brothers: Charlie, Otis, L.G. and Robert Pickett; and one grandson: William Dean "Cache" Parker, Jr.
She leaves to treasure her memories: a husband of 52 years: Julius Jones of Bakerksfield, CA; two sons: Jeffrey Pickett and Alex Jones (Alicia); and one adopted son: Reggie White all of Birmingham, AL; three daughters: Kim Parker and Diana Jones, both of Autaugaville, AL and Necole (Israel) Jones Udonyah of Atlanta, GA; six grandchildren: Jeffrey Le'mar Jones (aka Lil Jeff), Veronica Jones Henderson (Darryl) of Los Angles, CA, Nnijah McEachron (Kyle) of Autaugaville, AL, Keavonte Jones, Alexander Jones,and Jai Jones of birmingham, AL, six great-grandchildren: Miracle and Aniya Henderson (Veronica) and Lyrik Jones (Lil Jeff) all of Los Angeles, CA, Kennedy Parker and Christopher "CJ" Hardy (Cochise) both of Millbrook, AL, and Diana Grace Brown (Nnijah) of Autaugaville, AL; three sisters: Lillie Mae Shelton, Leola Johnson, and Prevella (Harvey) Motley all of Autaugaville, AL.
A host of nieces and nephews; three special friends: Exie Price, Annette Steele, and Lorenzo Nixon of Autaugaville, AL.
Leberta was fierce, determined, and a force to be reckoned with. She was knon for two things: Being her own person, and unconditional love and support of her children; she would fight a bear, lion, and two pitbulls all at once to protect her children, and she would "Win", leaving the bear, loin and pitbulls mangled to pieces! That's where the saying, "Help the Bear!" originated.
