Kristie Ann Kent Jones, 49, October 9, 1970-August 28, 2020. Beloved wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Preceded in death by her father, Franklin Hunter Kent, her mother, Bernice Shirley Kent, and her brother Franklin “Frankie” Kent Jr.
Born in Savannah, Georgia, Kristie graduated from St. James Catholic School, St. Vincent’s Academy-Class of ‘88, and Armstrong State University. At Armstrong, Kristie earned her Associate Degree in Nursing. She began her nursing career at St. Joesph’s Hospital, and then found her calling working with hospice patients and their families. She was an excellent and caring nurse to all of her patients, and treated them as family as they did her.
Kristie was a sensitive, beautiful person inside and out, and always took care of her family, friends, and especially her cats. She was known for rescuing stray animals.
Kristie enjoyed the back river on Tybee, hanging with her tribe, crabbing, boating, spa days, her sister vacations, and her role as “The Princess”. When the going got tough, Kristie’s favorite expression was “You can’t make this stuff up.”
Kristie is survived by her husband, Ronald “David” Jones Jr., her sister, Angela “Angie” Kent Staples (Bobby), and her beloved cat of 19 years Emmeline “Emmie” Kent Jones.
