“Gone to make peace with Jesus”
Love was showered into the arms of Norman and Mary Jones as they welcomed their fourth child in the world. They announced her to the world as, Carol Suzette.
Carolyn as many called her was reared in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was educated in the Tulsa Public School system attending, Dunbar Elementary, Monroe Junior High School, Gilcrease Junior High and graduating from Raymond S. McLain High School where she studied cosmetology and participated in the marching band.
Carolyn was very articulate along with her many talents, however, her passion was singing for Christ. She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Paradise Baptist Church.
Carolyn’s life was filled with joy as she was blessed to be a mother of four wonderful God-given children, Latashia, Tyrie, Elrico “Bo-Bo”, Queshenia “Punkin” Ackerson, and later her children in love, Benjamin Wilson and Kenya Wilson.
