Carolyn Reed Jones, 83, died peacefully in her sleep at her home in Winnsboro, TX on December 26, 2020.
She was born March 20, 1937, in Jackson, Mississippi to Paul and Nellie Wright and spent her young childhood in Jackson. Growing up in Mississippi, her parents gave her the nickname “Doozy”, which made her feel special and was a memory that she always cherished. Carolyn attended elementary school in Jackson, Mississippi. At the age of 12, she moved with her mother and two siblings to San Francisco, California where her mother and step-father, Leland Mansuetti, owned and operated a skating rink. In her spare time, she worked at the skating rink while attending secondary school in the San Francisco Public Schools. It was here that she met her husband of 61 years, Dalton Reed - a native Texan who was stationed in California while in the Navy. They were married on August 18, 1953. In 1955, the family moved back to Texas where Carolyn spent a few years as a telephone operator at Southwestern Bell Telephone in Dallas, Texas. They had a long and happy marriage and raised 3 children in Mesquite, Texas. Carolyn spent most of her early marriage as a stay-at-home mom, but as the children grew, she worked at various places, including a few years as an attendance clerk at Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas. Her husband, Dalton, was a Firefighter. Upon retirement, they moved to a small family farm in Winnsboro, Texas, which was their home for the rest of their lives. After 61 years of marriage, her husband, Dalton, preceded her in death in 2015. Sometime later, Carolyn remarried her second husband, LC Jones, of Mount Vernon, Texas. Carolyn was a devout Christian and attended Walnut Street Baptist Church in Winnsboro, Texas. Her interests included family, cooking, sewing, and reading. She was known for her sweet and compassionate disposition and devoted much of her time and energy as a friend and confidant to the many friends and family who all loved to come to her for advice, comfort, and unconditional love.
