Jennifer Kay Caldwell, 76, of Quinton, Virginia, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, April 21, 2023, peacefully at home with her husband of 56 years, Charles A. Caldwell, by her side.
She was born on April 11, 1947 to Mildred and Richard Jones in Peterstown, West Virginia in Monroe County. She graduated from Peterstown High School in 1965, and then attended and graduated from Alice’s Beauty School in Roanoke, Virginia. Shortly after, she and her husband, Charles, moved to Hopewell, Virginia and later to New Kent County.
Jennifer is survived by her beloved husband, Charles, and her daughters, Marnie Bourne of Mattaponi, Virginia and Jessica Allen (Bill) of Raleigh, North Carolina. She is survived by her granddaughter, Logan Bourne, and her grandsons, Ward, Charlie and Thomas Allen. She is also survived by her sister, Sue Breeding, and her brother, Vincent Jones, and sisters-in-law, Judy Hare, Frances Parker and Angela Caldwell. In addition, she is survived by her nephews, Nicholas and Nathaniel Breeding, Benjamin Hare, Steve Caldwell, Lance “Imran” Hyman, and nieces, Dawn Noble, Tiffany Granger, Ashley Davis, Kim Head, Kristin Seitz, Josie Robbins, Beth Parnell, and Lisa Walton. She was preceded in passing by her mother, Mildred Jones, father, Richard Jones, her sister, Rhonda Noble, and her nieces Cynthia Anne and Rebecca Breeding.
Jennifer worked as a beautician for many years at “The Hen House” and “Lords and Ladies” in Hopewell, where she had many loyal customers. She was also a member of Fairmount Christian Church in Mechanicsville, where she was a member for 30 years. At Fairmount, Jennifer was involved with the Feed His Sheep ministry. While living in Hopewell, she attended Tri-City Church of Christ.
She enjoyed being with her family and friends and had a fierce love of God, her country and debating politics. She cherished walks in the yard to look at her flowers, collecting antiques and cooking and canning for her family and friends, especially on holidays. Many of her customers were happy to receive her famous fruit cakes at Christmas. She also enjoyed visiting family in West Virginia and Raleigh.
Jennifer will be greatly missed and fondly remembered, and we will hold her close within our hearts, and there she will remain until we meet again.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, April 30, 2023 at 2:00 P.M. at Fairmount Christian Church at 6502 Creighton Road, Mechanicsville, Virginia.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her memory to the American Cancer Society at cancer.org or mailed to P.O. Box 6704, Hagerstown, Maryland 21741.
