Sharon Diane (Cremer) Jones
September 14, 1944 ~ October 23, 2023 (age 79) 79 Years Old
In the dawning light of September 14, 1944, a radiant soul, Sharon Diane (Cremer) Jones, graced this world with her presence in Miami, Florida, born to the late Marion and Helena Cremer. Affectionately known as "Dee Dee," she held the position of the third of seven sisters and one brother in the family fabric. In 1952, the Cremer family embarked on a journey to Richmond, California, where Dee Dee's spiritual journey began with her baptism at the Alamo Street Church of Christ. Subsequently, in 1957, the family relocated to East Palo Alto, California, forging a spiritual connection with the Laurel Ave. Church of Christ. In her later years, Dee Dee's path led her to Richardson, Texas, where she became an unwavering and devoted member of the Greenville Avenue Church of Christ.
Dee Dee's educational journey led her to the halls of Ravenswood High School in East Palo Alto, California, where she proudly graduated in 1962. Blessed with the gift of motherhood, she welcomed her sons, Nate and Erik Branch, into her world. In 1966, the charming Charles Jones entered her life, and their shared journey began. The birth of their beloved daughter, Shaneen Jones, followed, and in 1974, they sealed their commitment before God.
Dee Dee's professional journey was as diverse as it was impressive. She ventured into the world of entrepreneurship as a co-owner/operator of "Designs for You," a family crochet business shared with her sisters. Her career took her into the realm of electronics, where she served as a Microchip Processor, first with Fairchild Electronics and later with Advanced Micro Devices in Silicon Valley, California. Beyond her electronic pursuits, she etched her name as one of the pioneering Gel Nail technicians in Northern California. After many years of dedication, she retired in 2000, leaving a remarkable legacy.
Dee Dee found joy in a multitude of hobbies, including immersing herself in the pages of novels, creating intricate crochet designs, baking delicious cookies, and crafting mouthwatering banana waffles. Dancing brought her an unparalleled sense of delight. Above all else, her heart was fullest in her roles as a devoted wife, a nurturing mother, and a cherished grandmother and great-grandmother. Her love for her church family was unwavering, with an annual highlight being the eagerly anticipated Vacation Bible School, as well as her pride in being an esteemed member of the "Young at Heart" Ministry.
As her sun gracefully set on October 23, 2023, in McKinney, Texas, Dee Dee was embraced by the warmth of her loving family. She was reunited with her beloved parents, Marion and Helena Cremer, as well as her siblings - Lucille Cremer, Ronald Cremer, and Marion Jones.
The legacy of Dee Dee's treasured memories lives on in the hearts of her adoring husband, Charles Jones, her children - Nathaniel F. Branch (Grace), Erik L. Branch, Shaneen Jones, and Kesha Jones-Adams (Anthony), along with her 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She is forever remembered by her siblings - Vivian Jones, Bettie Foster (Calvin), Leola Simmons, Loretta Slaughter, and Joyce English (Eddie), her cherished aunt, Emma English, her God-Brothers Tony Pillars and Ronnie Yee, as well as a vast array of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends who hold her memory close to their hearts. Dee Dee's light will forever shine in the lives she touched, leaving an indelible mark on all who knew her.
