Obituary Condolences

Sharon P. Jones

Sharon P. Jones passed away on Sunday, August 11 at Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center. The family will receive friends and those who loved and cherished Sharon on Wednesday, August 21, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at The Bryant Mortuary, 635 Fulton Street, San Francisco. A Mass celebrating her life will be held at St. Dominic's Catholic Church at 11:00 AM, Thursday, August 22.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Greg Jones, and her parents, John and Grace Carey. Survivors include her daughter, Sharonda Jones, her sister, Karen Hall, her brother, John (Mary) Carey, and six nieces and nephews.

She was born in Balboa, PCZ on August 16, 1940. Life in Panama ended with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Her father returned to Boston to join the U.S. Army. After the war, the family moved to Ann Arbor, MI. Sharon graduated from the University of Michigan, majoring in English with a minor in Education. After Head Start training in St. Louis, she accepted a training position in Monterey. That experience led to a return to Ann Arbor to earn her Masters in English. After the conclusion of her education, she moved to the Bay Area. Initially, she lived in Oakland, then later in San Francisco. She became a patent and trademark law legal secretary until retirement.

Like her father, Sharon was a born fighter. She joined the fight to assure the rights of those in HUD housing. Her heart was kind and generous to those in need. She will be missed sorely by both family and friends. Rest in peace Sharon, others will rise to take up your causes.
