Carol Jones Wooten
Carol Viatta Jones Wooten, 69, died Tuesday (Nov. 27, 2018) at Kindred Hospital of North Florida in Green Cove Springs, Fla.
She was the second child of seven siblings of Eslyn Charles Jones and Kenneth Jones. She was really a gift from God who brought song of happiness in their lives as her name predicts.
“Sister V,” as she was often called, attended the Grand Roy Elementary School in the Parish of St. John on the Spice Island of Grenada. She then attended the St. John Christian Secondary School and Grenada Teachers College. She followed her mother’s footsteps and started her career as a teacher at an early age.
During the unrest in Grenada, she and her husband migrated to the United States of America where she continued her education and pursued her career obtaining a bachelor’s degree in education. She continued to be a wonderful teacher touching the lives of many.
Beyond her academic and professional exploits, she was sensitive, compassionate, loving and caring. She encouraged care for the children and youth she came in contact with. She always admired older adults in Zion that had wise words of counseling.
She held many positions in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. She was the first Sabbath School, Superintendent I the Ebenezer SDA Church and one of the foundation members. She loved the Lord with all her heart.
She loved the job of feeding, praying and sharing the love of Jesus to the community and the less fortunate where she lived.
Her memory will surely live in the lives of the children she gathered in the neighborhood teaching them songs and making programs to warm the hearts of others. Her hobbies were reading, gardening, singing and playing the piano.
Her memory will live on especially in the heart of her husband, Steve; her children, Philip and Charlacia; her grandchildren, Sade, Braylon and Mason; her siblings, Cheryl, Kenneth Jr., Jude, Hannah, Kenisha and Ursuline; brothers-in-law, Edward and Walter; sister-in-law, Janet; aunts, Veronica and Catherine; and several nieces and nephews.
