Caroline Jones

Caroline Anna Jones, age 40, died peacefully on Thursday April 4th in San Francisco after a courageous two year battle with brain cancer. She was born November 22, 1972 in New York City, daughter of the late Antony Winslow Jones and Magda Rydlo Jones. She attended the Brearley School in Manhattan, then earned degrees in Art History and Anthropology from Connecticut College in 1994.

Caroline moved to San Francisco where she married Devon Earl Brian Boyle in 2002. She worked in artistic development for the San Francisco School of Circus Arts until the birth of her daughters Charlotte in 2004 and Eloise in 2008. She was a dedicated volunteer and board member of the Little People of America. Her sense of humor, forgiving manner, intelligence, and enthusiasm inspired everyone whose life she touched.
