Jones, Linda Elaine - Brentwood, California  
1936 - 2015 Beloved mother and friend Linda Elaine Jones, 78, formerly of Stamford, Conn. and residing in Brentwood, Calif., passed away suddenly at Providence St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif. on April 19, 2015 after a brief but intense battle with cancer. She is survived by her sister, Mrs. Nancy Nelson of Boulder, Colo.; daughter, Samantha Katherine (Christie) Harvey, granddaughters Lilah Addison Harvey, of Sherman Oaks, Calif.; Kimberly Jones of Charlotte, N.C.; KC (Karlson) Kranker and Julie (Karlson) Safaii, both residing in Boston, Mass.; grandsons Jeffrey Karlson, formerly of Boston, Mass. and residing in Santa Barbara, Calif. and Christopher Jones, residing in Rockville, MD; stepchildren Mr. Brooks Jones of White Plains, NY, Mrs. Deborah Karlson of Walpole, Mass. and Mr. Charles Jones III of Charlotte, N.C. Born on October 23, 1936 in Leonia, N.J., Mrs. Jones grew up in Port Washington, NY, and attended Port Washington High School, where she graduated with honors. These academic accomplishments led her to earn a scholarship to Cornell University, where she studied economics and art history. In 1957 she left Cornell to marry Dr. Thomas Christie, an active member of the United States Navy. During this time, while traveling with Dr. Christie and residing at several naval bases in the United States and Puerto Rico, Mrs. Jones pursued a short yet very successful career as a model for such well-known entities as Clairol, Breck Shampoo and Golf Digest, to name a few. In 1978, divorced from Dr. Christie, Mrs. Jones was residing in Fairfield, and returned to earn her Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Art History from Fairfield University, where she graduated Summa cum Laude. In 1979, Mrs. Jones married Charles L. Jones II, and relocated to Pelham NY, where she led an active and fulfilling life as a philanthropist and homemaker in Pelham Manor, NY, Greenwich, Conn., Stamford, Conn., and most recently, Brentwood, Calif. After more than 20 blissful years together, Mr. Jones predeceased her in 1999. Mrs. Jones is also predeceased by her sister, Helen-Claire Martin, of Albany, NY; son, Michael Christie of Fairfield, Conn.; and her parents, Marion and Martin Schneeloch, of Southport, Conn. Linda embodied the epitome of grace, intelligence, class and elegance, yet her approachable, practical and compassionate nature touched all who knew her. Her ability not only to communicate with but also to engage people from diverse backgrounds and experiences made her a natural diplomat and she was truly an inspiration to anyone fortunate enough to have met her. She will be missed tremendously, and will live on in our hearts forever. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 2:00 PM at the Greenfield Hill Congregational Church in Fairfield, Conn. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to the Humane Society of the United States, Dept: Memorial Donations, 2100 L Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037 or visit http://www.humanesociety.org/donate/ The Shaughnessy Banks Funeral Home, 50 Reef Rd. in Fairfield Center is assisting with the arrangements.

KALPAKJIAN, GARY - Delray Beach  
KALPAKJIAN--Gary, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great -grandfather, died on April 21st, 2015 in Gulf Stream, Florida. Born in Constanza, Romania in 1927 to loving Armenian parents Mihran and Nevart Kalpakjian, in 1937 he left Europe with his parents and brother Henry to come to America. They settled in Brooklyn, where he met Helen Hartigan, whom he married in 1950.

He believed in and lived the American Dream with the love of his life Helen and their three children Lydia, Gary, and Craig.

KREINDLER--Ellen Cohen. Called by some "The Fabulous Ellen K", she was beautiful, elegant, artistically gifted and very accomplished, but most of all, she had an infinite capacity for love. Her love for her husband Donald, her children Russell Cohen, Carlen Leeser, John Cohen and their spouses, and her eight grandchildren and one great- granddaughter, was so deep and everlasting and was returned in equal measure by all of them.

In lieu of flowers, please contribute to Mt. Sinai Heart.
