Obituary


Carla Rose Jones

Carla Rose Jones, "P-nah-toot-my-uit", was born on January 12, 1974 in Everett, WA. She returned to the Creator on February 26, 2011, following an extended illness. She was the daughter of Dennis "Jerry" Jones (deceased) and Shirley Wyena Jones of Tulalip. She was the mate of Jesse Paul.
For the past 12 years she had worked for the Board of Directors of the Tulalip Tribes, she also had worked for several other departments prior to working for the Board. Carla was very committed to her position for the BOD and was proud to be able to assist in helping and caring for her beloved people.
She was an integral part of the Canoe Journey; she looked forward to this annual gathering and trained to pull, as part of the Tulalip Canoe Family. Carla Rose lived in two worlds, following both Tulalip and Yakama traditions. She was eager and excited when it was time to gather Cedar with family and friends. She was equally excited and looked forward to the annual digging of roots and celebrated Feast with family and relations in Yakama. She was very proud of a new root digging hat her mother gifted her with for the next Feast.
Carla Rose was an accomplished bead worker; in addition she enjoyed baseball, football and was the "Wonder Woman" team mom for her sons sports activities. She had a passion for all that she was involved in. Her friends and family will smile as they recall her love of shopping for Coach and Burberry purses, shoes and clothes in general.
She had a larger than life presence and you knew when she entered the room. She had an infectious laugh and a ready smile. Her laughs could envelope you and lift you up. She was a light in the darkness for so many.
She loved being with her family and her friends. She was a woman proud of her children and her heritage. When her father passed away she felt called to continue in his footsteps and care for the canoes in the way he had taught her.
Carla Rose honored the Traditional teachings of both her father and mother's families.
Carla was preceded in death by her father, Dennis, "Jerry" Jones, Carl and Cecelia Jones and Lillian Jones. Also by Harry and Nancy Jim Wyena and many other beloved relatives.
Surviving family include: her husband, Jessie Paul; children, Johnathon Trobee, Issac Lafountaine, Baby J, Nadine Paul, Austin Paul; and her beloved pet, Sugar Jones.
Sisters, Angie Ver Hoeven, Jackie, Penny and Tillie Jones. A grandchild, Issac Lafountaine Jr.
There are numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins at Tulalip and Yakima.
Services will be: Wednesday, 1 p.m. at Schaefer Shipman, with procession out to Tulalip; Interfaith Service will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Seven Drums at 8:00 a.m. followed by the Traditional at 10:00 a.m.
