in loving memory of

Rev Jonetta Faye Lacy born in Conroe, Texas on February 20, 1956 to John and Dorothy Lacy.

She set the bar high for her five younger sisters and brothers in all that she participated.  Her relationship with Christ began at an early, baptized at Saint Matthew Baptist where she learned the meaning of missionary work with a smile. Weekends were spent watching her grandmother, a deacon’s wife, create ways to serve the community children and families with baskets and clothing drives. Here in this loving community she learned that faith is action, so it is no wonder James 2:26 became one of her favorite scriptures. "Faith without works is dead.” A product of the Houston Independent School District she excelled as an honor student and band member.

Archie B. Washington (Co-Founder)

Archie Barnard Washington was born in Crockett, Texas on March 12, 1952; he was the only child of Lizzie (Smith) Washington and Eddie Washington. Belovedly known as A.B., Wash, Squeaky, and Little Man.

After graduating from Booker T. Washington High School in 1972, he then served in the Marine Corp. He then led a career with the Harris County Constable, PRecint One in 1977. Archie protected and serviced the community for 28 years as a Deputy Constable and retired in 2005.

Archie’s did not waste his talent and patience to help others. He dedicated much of his time, in his youth and the time preceeding his passing, in service in the following ministries and organizations:

· A member of Mount Corinth Baptist Church; · A member of Green Chapel A.M.E. Church, Head of the Security Ministry; · A Vacation Bible School Teacher; · Treasurer of the Booker T. Washington Booster Club; · A Volunteer of Booker T. Washington Marketing · Studewood Cobras Football and Cheer · Member of the Prayer Posse · Presenter of the JFLW awards to HCDE GED Graduation 2016 and Clear Lake AME 2016 · Supporter of the Breakfast Club Scholarship 2016.

But the most inspirational contribution that JFLW Inc. ( not sure what the official name is) is that it was Archie who started the groundwork for the scholarship’s formation and was an avid and dedicated worker. After, Rev. Washington had passed and her sister, Carrie, had mentioned an interest in creating a scholarship to continue her legacy, it was Archie supported and promoted the idea and help the Board turn the idea into a realization.

The JFLW Board cannot express how grateful they were for Archie’s efforts or how much his warm and comforting smile will be missed.
