Marie Antoinette LeBleu Jones
Marie Antoinette LeBleu Jones, 81, of St. Albans, went home to be with the Lord on March 18, 2018 at Hubbard Hospice House West in South Charleston. She made her journey peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Marie was born March 13, 1937 in Charleston and was a lifelong resident of St. Albans. She was a graduate of St. Albans High School, Class of 1955. Marie worked for C&P Telephone Company in the late 1950’s and for Abney Street Church of God as an Administrative Assistant for 20+ years.
