Carolyn Henrietta Ladson Jones, 78, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. Carolyn was born in Wheeling, West Virginia on January 13, 1946, to the late Joseph Edward Ladson and Ollie (Gladys) Ladson Parks. Carolyn later moved with her mother and sister to Philadelphia, PA., and eventually to Canton, OH. She graduated from Canton McKinley High School in 1965. She married her husband, Jessie, in 1969 and eventually had two children, Jesse and Carla. Carolyn was beautiful on the inside and out and had so much class. She was a woman of strong emotions, and a passionate nature. As a young girl she got into several fights, and she would be the first to tell you that she never lost one. Carolyn was blessed to be a stay-at-home wife and mother, and she loved it. She loved taking care of her family and showering them with love and care. Carolyn always said that if she had to do her life over again, that she wouldn't change a thing. She was an avid reader and liked to take her children to the library so that they all could get books to read. She had a strong interest in politics, history and world affairs.

Carolyn was blessed through the The Church of God and Saints of Christ in Wheeling, WV. as a baby. She was baptized at Shiloh Baptist Church in Canton, OH. as a teenager. Carolyn loved her family and extended family. She loved her husband, children and granddaughter, Jessica. Carolyn loved her brothers and sister, and her love for her mother was extremely deep. She had a special love for her family in and from Wheeling, WV. and she often told stories of living in Wheeling as a young girl, and her family
there. Carolyn also had an enduring love for her sister-in-law, Gwendolyn Ladson. Carolyn and Gwen raised their children together and they all shared many laughs and great times.


In addition to her parents, Carolyn is preceded in death by her husband, Jessie Jones Sr.; her brother, Joseph Gregory Ladson; sister in laws: Catherine V. Jones, Juanita (William) Goodman, Hattie (David) Elliott; brother in laws: Joseph Jones, Charles Jones, John (Beulah) Jones, and pet dog, Tiger Jones.

Carolyn leaves behind many cousins, nieces and nephews. Janet Batiste was Carolyn's caretaker. No words can describe how Ms. Janet stepped into the Jones ' lives and worked miracles. She has been an angel to the family, sent by God. Latoya is heaven sent too. The Jones family want to thank Drs. K.W. and Steve Nam for their top-tier medical care of Carolyn and Jessie Sr. throughout the years, which helped them to live their best lives!
