October 22, 1961 – April 25, 2022
Kim D. Jones went to be with the Lord on Monday, April 25, 2022 at her residence. She was born October 22, 1961 in Ft. Benning, GA, to Carolyn B. Jones and the late Leonard C. Jones. She was the granddaughter of the late James H. Brown Jr. (Philadelphia, PA), the late Sallie B. Early and William H. “Dick” Early (Waverly, VA).
She was a member of Mt. Olivet Baptist Church on Halifax Street and Market Street, where she sang in the choir. Upon graduating from Petersburg High School “Class of 1981,” Kim was hired by Hunter Holmes McGuire Hospital as a Nurse’s Aide and ended up as a Recreational Therapy Assistant in the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. She loved her veterans; they were her second family. Working at McGuire was truly her gift from God.

Jones, Sr. (Sherri) of Prince George, VA, and Karen D. Jones of Midlothian, VA; three grandchildren, who she loved to spoil, Akyra Walker, Kyrie Walker and Mason Walker.
