|Mrs. Doshia Jones Lockhart was born December 9, 1909 to Mr. and Mrs. William Jones in Port Vincent, Louisiana. She departed this life December 29, 1998.
A celebration of life service for Mrs. Lockhart was held at the Roberts United Meth-odist Church, Denham Springs, Louisiana, conducted by Dr. Alonzo Campbell, with words of comfort given by Rev. Wilbur G. C. Davis.
Mrs. Lockhart was married to the late Rev. David Lockhart. They joined in life and ministry wholeheartedly and served in various areas of the Louisiana Conference. With her warm, giving, sharing, and caring spirit, she helped her clergy husband’s ministry move forward in every place he served.
Like the Shunammite woman in II Kings, chapter 4, Mrs. Lockhart often fed and opened her home to many ministers.
She served the community of Denham Springs well, assisting people in any way she could. Whenever there was tragedy of any kind, she was among the first to be there to offer as-sistance, not for recognition, but because she cared. She never talked about what she did for people, many times no one knew just how much she did. But after all, that is the way the Lord would have us do.
Nothing beautiful in
This world is ever really lost –
Those we cherish will always live
On in memory.
