Inez Jacobs Brunson, 85, answered her call to her heavenly home on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at McCoy Memorial Nursing Center, Bishopville. Born in Darlington County, she was the daughter of the late Hughie Jacobs and Ida Rogers Jacobs and the wife of the late Henry Jacob Brunson.
Nell was a member of the Saint Mark Missionary Baptist church since her marriage to Mr. Jake, where she served as a missionary for many years and later sang with the gospel choir. After years of caring for her ill husband and his passing, she was a member of the senior choir for a period of time.
“Nell” or “Mrs. Iness”, as she was called by many, had a love for flowers, gardening and raising chickens. Her mottos were “Put your trust in the Lord and thank Him no matter how the day was” and “Take the Lord with you wherever you go”. Her favorite chapters from the Bible were Psalm 23 and Psalm 121 and her favorite song was “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”.

McDonald; a devoted grandson, Terence Demetrius McDonald (Khadija Ann); two great grandsons, Kha’sem Jiervon and Dargan Demetrius McDonald; two step great granddaughters, Dedrae Wilson and Khabrea Green; also raised in the home was Leo Johnson (Sheila) and their son, Randy, of Palm Bay, FLA; sisters-in-law, Essie B.
