It is with profound sadness that we share the loss of our beloved Mother, and Grandmother Cherie Lynn Jones who passed away on June 24 th , 2024 at home in Beaver Bank, Nova Scotia, after a battle with COPD. Cherie was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on June 22, 1955, she was the daughter of the late Murray and Thelma (Rice) Jones.

Mom was a beautiful soul with a kind and giving heart. She loved and cherished her family and time spent together making memories. She could light up a room with her beauty, smile, and laughter. She loved animals, listening and singing along to music, visiting the ocean, and playing a competitive game of crib with her cherished friends. Mom loved gardening and had a green thumb. She enjoyed playing card games, a good puzzle, and an interesting read. She had a good sense of humor and was a fun-loving person.

Cherie graduated from Queen Elizabeth High School and completed some post-secondary training. Cherie then developed a passion for government policies when she started a career for the provincial and then federal government. She enjoyed her career, which also sparked her interest in independent writing.
