Charlotte A. Jones, 80, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 9, 2021, with her loving family by her side.
She was born in Albany on September 15, 1940 to the late Marie Vogel (Nelson) and Charles LaBarge. In 1958 she married the love of her life, James J. Jones. They moved to Glenmont in 1972, where they raised 7 children. Her favorite holiday was Christmas and she often started shopping early in the year. She loved family gatherings, weekly church services and lunch with childhood friends. She had a fondness for ladybugs and religious pendants. She maintained a youthful appearance; often mistaken for our sister.
