Shelia Jean Jones of Canton, Ohio born on March 29, 1957 to the late Roy J. and Eloise Pearson Jones, Sr. was called home to be with the Lord on October 9, 2018. Sheila enjoyed spending time at her grandparents home in her childhood. They taught her many things like fishing and cooking. She also enjoyed music, dancing, and reading books. She obtained her STNA license in 2006 and later attended Stark State College to become a social worker (a long time dream of hers). Sheila leaves with us her beautiful upbeat personality. She was a strong woman and anyone who came in contact with her never doubted that about her. She was a firm believer in Christ and spoke highly of His name whether rain or sunshine. So today we celebrate her home going and know that she is no longer in pain, but in Heaven dancing with her family and friends that went home before her, saving a place for us.
