Though the clouds may hang over, there will be a brighter day, in that land that they call HEAVEN, GOD shall wipe all tears away. With faith and assurance that God will see us through, The Ellis and connected families has given full ranks to the professionals at Mitchell Funeral Care and Cremations to announce the earthly transition of our lovable, sassy, straight-to-the-point mother, sister, grandmother and friend, Carolyn Elizabeth Jones Ellis. A native of Portmouth, VA, born to the late Monzell and Mildred Todd Jones, transitoned from this life peacefully on Monday, June 24, 2019 at her residence, surrounded by family and friends.

Following the celebration of life, the family will journey to the Olive Branch Cemetery in Portsmouth, VA where she will return home to be laid to rest beside her loving son, Corey Jones. Sacred moments of viewing and personal moments with Carolyn will take place at the funeral home on Sunday from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 pm.
