In Celebration of

Carol Winnifred Jones

December 26, 1927 -  December 14, 2021

Carol’s family announces her peaceful passing on December 14, 2021, at age 93. Carol was predeceased by her loving husband, Reg Jones, in 1989. She was fortunate to have enjoyed a full life marked with some travels, along with excellent health. She was surrounded with love by her children Peter (Rebecca), Susan (Paul), and Karen (Bill). Carol enjoyed close and special relationships with her grandchildren Mark, Lauren (Michael), Joanna (Robert), Kristen (Andrew), Leslie (Chris), and Natalie (Jake). As well, she knew the joy of great-grandchildren Liam, Kyle, Eleanor, Olivia and Cole. Carol was an active member of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church in Etobicoke, for many years. She also leaves behind nieces, nephews, friends and loved ones who were tightly within the circle of her life, and many considered her a mother figure in their lives also. Carol was known for her quiet, calm demeanor, keen wit, independence, and for always being on hand to support and listen. Carol was always grateful for life’s gifts, and will be so missed. The family will plan a celebration of Carol’s life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Salvation Army. You are invited to share in the creation of the memorial site by adding a condolence and any remembrances, photos or video clips about the life of Carol Jones at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel website.

Carol was the last of our parents' Mervin Ave crowd from the '50's. Edith and Ian, Pearl and Ken, Carol and Reg. In those days it was common for young kids to be tethered to a cinder block on the front lawn ...seems strange now but everyone did it.

We kids called them aunt and uncle ...that's how close we all were. The neighbourhood celebrated holidays with fireworks and parties. We all spent just as much time at each other's houses as we did our own. Randy Price was afraid of dogs.

Peter, Sue and Karen our condolences...Carol was a unique soul.

Carol’s niece, Barbara McGrath, wanted to share the following stories with her family:

The first story as my Dad used to tell it goes like this ... he did dearly love to tease Aunt Carol, mostly because she was such a good sport. This story is back in the old days when we were all small or barely anticipated - not even sure Uncle Bill and Aunt Lyla were married at the time.

At any rate here goes ...

After a large family dinner at 92 Mervyn, Dad volunteered to dry dishes. Carol was washing and the entire small kitchen had dishes from the meal stacked everywhere waiting to be washed, dried and put away. He stood there happily drying and drying and drying and Carol continued washing and washing and washing until she looked around, amazed that they were not making any headway. The kitchen was still full of dirty dishes. It was only then she noticed that Dad had been taking the carefully dried and stacked dishes and was putting them right back on the “dirty dish” side of the counter where she was just putting them back into the sink and carefully re-washing them. After yelling at my Dad, she burst out laughing and they did finally get all the dishes done but I am not sure she ever let him dry again !!

I also remember when I was 19, I think, and I was planning on moving out to my own place. Gramma Tice was beyond upset to think I would EVER want to move away at such a tender age. My mom was not a fan of any kind of conflict so thankfully Carol waded into the fray and reminded Gramma that she (Gramma ) had left home at 16. And THAT was THAT !!! No more fuss from Gramma. Game, set and match to Carol !!!! I didn't know until years later that this little episode had even happened.
