September 29, 1960 - November 11, 2019
Denisea Kay Jones Marengo, born September 29,1960 in Waynesboro, Ms. went on to be with her Lord early in the morning of Nov. 11, 2019 at her home in the Sharon Community of Jones County. Having struggled with the life challenges brought into life as a result of cancer some eight years earlier she is finally fully healed and at rest in the arms of her savior, Jesus. Growing up the eldest of three daughters to Aaron and Berteen Jones she was driven to always excel in any endeavor she placed her hand to. Whether it was cheerleading for the basketball team at Northeast Jones High School, going after her academic pursuits towards teaching, furthering those degree interest to Masters level, being supermom, choir member or the “bestest” sister ever…. she never quit. Hard headed easily describes her dogged determination in life. Born from that trait was her incredible creativity she so eagerly shared with her students, fellow teachers, sons, husband and home. Students remember her decorations, math challenges, boot camp, Marengo Island and other endeavors that made a day in class an event. Holidays required over the top 2,3,4,5 Christmas trees. And plenty of glitter which drove her husband Chris to madness. Christmas was not the only holiday that required decorating. Memorial Day, July the 4th, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Easter, just-because-day…decorating is a must. Denisea is survived by her husband Chris Marengo and two sons Heath Ainsworth and Kade Pierce - step daughter Nicole Overstreet and stepson Micah Marengo - her father Aaron Jones (wife Dora Jones) and sister Amanda Jones (husband Rusty Jones). She was blessed with six grandchildren and so many others that crept into her heart and became Nene to them. Love is never bound to blood and genetics. She is preceded in death by her mother Berteen Jones, sister Tina Gordon, son Zac Ainsworth. She joins them and a host grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins in an eternal praise and worship service around God’s throne. Memory Chapel 3100 Audubon Drive will be the site for the wake on Wednesday from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Christ’s Church 1301 N 2nd Avenue will be the site for services on Thursday at 11 a.m. with interment following at Sharon Cemetery.
