Obituary for CARRIE BERTHA JONES

Carrie Bertha Kent Jones was born on March 3, 1925 to the late Daniel W. and
Agusta (Gussie) Brooks Kent. She was the seventh of eight children. She was
educated in the public schools of Calvert County, graduating from William
Sampson Brooks High School in 1942. After high school she attended Hampton
University in Virginia for two years.

She worked on various jobs: Lansburgh's Department Store in Washington,
D.C. during summer breaks, Kent's Florist in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and
People's Drug Store in Baltimore, Maryland. She returned home where she met
Clyde Jones, Jr. After several years, they married and were blessed with four
children, Dana, Dawn, Dean, and Dale.

She drove the school bus for her mother-in-law for eleven years while raising
children. When her children were old enough to be on their own, she worked for
the Department of Human Resources caring for mentally challenged persons for
twelve years. She retired in 1995 after a second spinal surgery.

Her favorite song is a classic sung by Aretha Franklin, "Bridge over Troubled
Water". She enjoyed cooking and caring for her children and grandkids.

She is survived by her husband, Clyde Jones, Jr., five children Dana (Carolyn),
Dawn (Reggie), Dean (Charisse), Dale (Debbie), and Sylvia, a host of
grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in
death by her parents and seven other siblings.
