Image:Carol Renee (Mills) JonesCarol Renee (Mills) Jones affectionately known as Ne-Ne was born on December 13, 1973 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Hezzie J. Mills and Linda J. Brand.  Carol graduated Arsenal Technical High School in 1992 and then went on to receive her Masters of Business Administration Degree from Keller Graduate School of Management.
Carol was an extremely dedicated employee of J.P. Morgan Chase Bank from 1994 until her passing.  She worked dutifully in several job roles during her career.  She always excelled in every position and was known for her strong effective communication, analytics, and leadership skills.
Carol and her family joined Lamb of God Assembly Apostolic Church in 2009.  Under the leadership of  Bishop Robert A. Hornberger she began to grow more in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Her church family meant a lot to her and she considered them her extended family.
Carol was united in holy matrimony to the love of her life Willard I. Jones on June 27, 2010 in Maui, Hawaii.  Will was not only her life partner but her world travelling buddy. Due to their bi-annual birthdates, you could find them on a cruise, an exquisite restaurant, lying on a beach or all of the above every year faithfully in June and December.
To know Carol was to know that she was a “first class” lady and everything around her she made extravagant.  Carol enjoyed the finer things in life; this was evidenced by her great love of fine cuisine she would drive for miles and miles to dine at the restaurant of choosing.  She truly enjoyed travelling; her passport was fully stamped with travels that included England and Aruba and a myriad of other countries in between.  Carol also enjoyed being a trend setter, she had an eye for fashion; Coach, Michael Kors, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton was her favorite designers just to name a few.  
Most of all Carol enjoyed being with her family. Carol would do any and everything possible to give her children the world. Once her children were grown she passed on that love and devotion to her nieces and nephews. Carol was truly a devoted sister and friend; she would do anything in her power to uplift or support her loved ones.
Carol was very proud of Asia joining the U.S. Navy.  She believed this was God’s plan for Asia’s life.  Once Asia graduated Navy boot camp in March 2016 Carol knew that Asia would make an excellent Construction Electrician.  Carol proudly wore her “Navy Mom” attire and she enjoyed talking about her daughter the Seabee!
Carol departed this earthly life on Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 7:59am at the age of 43.  Carol was preceded in death by her father Hezzie J. Mills, her grandmother Margaret E. Grady, her son Kenneth J. Mills-Tucker, and her niece Tana Tyler.
Carol leaves behind to cherish her beloved memory: her loving husband Willard I. Jones, her beautiful daughter Asia A. Tucker; her step-children Tajee Jones, Donovan Blackmon, Jaaz Jones, and Willard Jones Jr., her mother and step-father Linda and Henry Brand; her grandfather Hugh Matthew Grady Jr., her three sisters LaDonna Mills, Kelly E. Williams (Elijah), Ashley M. Brand-Jones; her three nephews Tyrone Mills, Elijah L. Williams II, Kaleb J. Brand-Pearson; her niece Olivia E. Williams; her great-nieces Aaliyah S.Tyler and Cherish Mills; her great-nephew Chace L. Tyler and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.  She will be deeply missed.
