Singer Brenda Jones, of the R&B Group The Jones Girls, Has Passed Away - EBONY.com

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Jones told EBONY. “When we lost Val in 2001 that was a real big blow to the family….The bond that we had growing up was unique; it was so special.”Shirley Jones continued, “The heartbreak is phenomenal. I can’t even imagine going on without her but life will go on. We’re strong and we’re going to persevere in her name. She was truly a wonderful person.”Consisting of sisters Shirley, Brenda and Valorie, The Jones Girls served as backup singers for soul acts like Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, and Diana Ross before striking out on their own. The group’s self-titled 1979 debut album landed in the top 10 on Billboard’s R&B charts, resulting in the hit “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” and its B-side, “Who Can I Run To,” which was covered by Xscape in 1995.[embedded content]Before disbanding in the early 2000s following sister Valorie Jones’ death, The Jones Girls recorded six studio albums and became a favorite among DJs, who still play their music–like the fan favorite, “Nights Over Egypt”–today.[embedded content]Shirley Jones has kept recording and performing over the years, and she said her sister was thinking of returning to music as well.“She did put out a record over in London a couple of years ago and I think it went to the top 10 on a couple of the soul charts there, but as far as performing she was trying to decide if that was something that she wanted to do again,” Shirley Jones said.According to her sister, Brenda spent most of her time with her daughter while she was a traveling nurse, taking care of her granddaughter because “she absolutely adored her.” Shirley Jones said Brenda’s dedication to her family was constant, and her impact on the music world will forever be felt.

Billie, by his side. "Mr. B" as he was affectionately known by his family and friends, was born on February 15, 1924, in Swenson, Texas, to Joe N. and Ocie Brownfield. Mr. B grew up in Menard, Texas, working alongside his older brother, Jack, in their father's grocery store, the Busy Bee. Mr. B graduated from Menard High School in 1938 and enrolled at Texas A&M University, but his college career was interrupted by World War II. Mr. B volunteered and joined the U.S. Marine Corps in December 1942 and served his country in combat in the South Pacific theatre, including Guam and Okinawa. After three years and three campaigns, Mr. B was honorably discharged and returned home in December 1945.One of the first people Joe saw when he arrived back in Menard was his best friend's younger sister, Billie Ruth Hayhurst. She had grown up while he was gone, and he always said she was the prettiest girl he'd ever seen. It was love at first sight and the two began dating. Joe and Billie married on July 28, 1946, and they moved to Waco, Texas. Two beautiful daughters, Scherry and Sally, soon followed, and their son, Joe Troy, was a miraculous addition on March 2, 1962. The Brownfields joined Columbus Avenue Baptist Church and Mr. B attended the Judge Frank Wilson Young Businessmen's Sunday School Class for over fifty years. He enjoyed spending time with his family at home or at their deer lease, the Turkey Water Hole, in Brady, Texas, and he and Billie hosted their family every Thanksgiving ...
