Connie “Jeannie” Regina Jones-Sims left her Earthly bonds and ascended to be with the Lord in eternal rest on June 15, 2021 at the age of seventy. Born on September 6, 1950 to Cornelius Jones and Lula Mae Jones, she was the second of six children. A Detroit native, Connie moved to Youngstown, Ohio where she attended The Rayen High School.
