We celebrate the life of Alice Jones Logan who reached the end of her beautiful journey on August 5, 2022, at the incredible age of 103. Alice was born on October 25, 1918, to J. Robert and Alice Albright Jones in Wilson, North Carolina. She graduated from North Carolina College for Negroes (now North Carolina Central University) in Durham in 1940 with a BS Degree in Home Economics. After her 30-year career of teaching in the Durham Public Schools at James A. Whitted Junior High School and Hillside High School, she retired in 1983. In 1990, she was inducted into the Society of Golden Eagles at North Carolina Central University. She was extremely proud and looked forward to attending the induction ceremony each year and never missed the event since her induction.
Alice had a love for flowers and enjoyed taking special care of her roses in the garden. The Pinochle Club, nicknamed “The Squirrels,” and the Junior Mother’s Club were among her many pastimes. As a longtime member of White Rock Baptist Church in Durham, she recently enjoyed its services on YouTube, a technology she thought was amazing. She enjoyed the Big Band music of her generation. Her favorite songs were “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”
Alice is preceded in death by her husband, George W. Logan, Jr. Her memory shall be cherished and shared by her son, George W. Logan, III of Durham; daughters, Wenda L. Ashford (Ronald) of Boston, MA and Bonnie D. Logan of Baltimore, MD; “special” daughter, Thomasine Bass Perry of Durham; a granddaughter, Judge Tamara W. Ashford of Alexandria, VA; niece, India Cooke of Oakland, CA; nephews, J. Robert Jones, III of Wilson, NC, David B. Cooke (Betty Jo) of Atlanta, GA, and William Pearson (Stephanie) of Durham; two great nephews, J. Robert Jones, IV and Jamar Jones, of Las Vegas, NV; and countless friends.
A Celebration of Life will be on Monday, August 15, 2022, at 1:00 PM at White Rock Baptist Church, 3400 Fayetteville Street, Durham, NC.
