Carolyn Sue Jones, age 78, passed away peacefully on Tuesday June 16, 2020. She was born on July 26, 1941 at the family’s home on Catoosa and was a lifelong resident of Morgan County. Carolyn received a business degree from Knoxville School of Business in the 1960s. She last worked for East Tennessee Human Resource Agency (ETHRA) for 24 years. Even though Carolyn worked, she was a mom and home maker. She loved canning what the garden produced yearly and cooking for crowds of people who showed up at the house just in time for dinner. Carolyn ensured no one ever went hungry. She loved spending time with family, traveling and country living.
She was preceded in death by her husband Roy E. Jones of more than 55 years; her parents Eugene VanNorstran and Fannie VanNorstran; brothers Frank (Margaret) VanNorstran and Michael VanNorstran; sisters Veronica VanNorstran and Elizabeth (Mark) Hamby.
She is survived by her three children Susie Jones-Brier, Debbie Jones, and Ricky Jones; and three grandsons Roy E. Brier, Levi and Lucas Williams.
