I am sharing this email from Pastor Shannon Bowdoin of the Bellshire Church in Nashville. Sister Jones-Lawson is the widow of former State Overseer, Bishop L.V. Jones, Sr. and Bishop Raymond Lawson. Her son, Bishop L.V. Jones, Jr. is the Overseer of Alabama, and her daughter is Janice Miller, formerly of the International Offices.

Dear Friends,

It saddens my heart to have to pass on the news that Sis. Lillie Bernice “Bunchie” Jones Lawson has passed away. Her passing was sudden and unexpected and we extend our deepest sympathy to her children and the rest of her extended family. Funeral arrangements are pending and I will provide the schedule of services VIA another email as soon as they are available.

Please be in prayer for the family and her church community as we mourn the loss of this spiritual giant who will be greatly missed.

In Christ,

Shannon W. Bowdoin
Senior Pastor
Bellshire Church of God of Prophecy
