In memory of
Catherine A. Jones
Catherine A. Jones, age 82, a long-term resident of Fort Walton Beach, Florida passed away on Thursday, July 23, 2020. Born in West Allis, Wisconsin on June 14, 1938, Cathy was well known for her outgoing personality and willingness to take on any tasks to further a good cause. Friends and family were greatly impacted by having Cathy in their lives. "An exemplary woman, nothing short of amazing", "Cathy was an exceptional person and her memory to us will never be forgotten", "She was the pluckiest lady I've ever known. I hope one day to have ½ of her grit and character", are just some of the comments from family and friends as they learned the sad news of her passing. Cathy came to Fort Walton Beach in the early 1980's to manage a new hotel/restaurant that was being built, Leeside. Through Leeside she became involved with the Emerald Coast Restaurant Association. She was also an energetic member of the Tourist Development Council of Okaloosa County, where she was engaged in establishing the beach access sites to enhance the tourist experience in Okaloosa County. Cathy was very involved in establishing the Destin Fort Walton Beach Convention Center. Most recently she was the Okaloosa Island Fire Department Chairperson and Vice Commodore at the Fort Walton Beach Yacht Club in 2009. Some of Cathy's interests include travel, gardening, cross-stitch, knitting, hosting family and friends at their home, and her favorite cat, Squeak. Cathy is preceded in death by her parents, Roman H. and Catherine L. Pitz and her brother, Richard C. Pitz. Cathy is survived by her husband, Graeme B. Jones of Fort Walton Beach Florida; her daughters, Ann M. Young, Catherine (Kay) M. Ring and Barbara S Lowe and her stepchildren, Bronwyn E. Lyman, Russell B. Jones, Paul C. Jones and Melanie A. Ellis. Her grandchildren, Samuel D. Ring, Melvin A Young IV., Matthew T. Young, Ann E. Walker, Neel Brodie Walker, Jessica B. Jones, Juliet R. Jones, Phillip Jones, Alex Jones, and Sarah Jones; her great granddaughters, Skyla and Aurora. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, no service will be held at this time. Plans remain open for a memorial service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, plant something in your garden in honor of Cathy's green thumb.
