Over 200 people helped Louise Evans-Jones celebrate her 80th birthday recently at the Lou Walker Senior Center in DeKalb County.

Evans-Jones, an associate pastor of Overcomers Christian Fellowship in Lithonia, attended a gala in her honor. The 50-year DeKalb resident was lauded as a beacon in the community, who has lived by the motto: “Love God, Love yourself and Love God’s people.”

Evans-Jones taught for the Atlanta Public School system for 37 years. She went on to work another 15 years for the Partnership for Community Action’s Early Headstart program in DeKalb. Ever committed to positively impacting her community, Evans-Jones and her daughter, Francine Harris, started a food program in Lithonia to assist the needy in May.  Every third Saturday, her children and grandchildren come together to assist her with feeding people in the city of Lithonia. Over 100 people are fed each month.

Evans-Jones is the proud mother of 6 children, 14 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.
