Kaitlyn Margaret "Katie" Jones, 17, of Elkton, Fla., passed away Aug. 1, 2014, at her home. Katie was born in Jacksonville, but had lived most of her life in St. Augustine and was going into her sophomore year at Pedro Menendez High School. In her middle school years she enjoyed being a member of the Sparkler Cheer Team at Nease High School, and competing in bowling competitions with the Special Olympics. She loved "glitter and bling" and was very interested in fashion and was known to many as "The Fashion Queen of St. Augustine".
