Private funeral services will be held tomorrow for Mrs. Caroline Bonnell Jones, wife of Federal Judge Paul Jones, who died yesterday at her home, 2750 Endicott Road, Shaker Heights.
Mrs. Jones, who was 67, was the daughter of a prominent early Youngstown family. Her parents were J. M. and Emily Wick Bonnell.
After graduation from a fashionable school for girls in New York she traveled to Europe with an aunt and a cousin. On her return trip she was one of the few passengers rescued when the Titanic sank in 1912.
Her marriage to Judge Jones culminated a schoolday romance. After the wedding the couple went abroad for their honeymoon.
An ardent worker for charitable and welfare causes until stricken with illness more than six years ago, Mrs. Jones early in life, became interested in social settlement work. She served at one time on the board of the Cleveland Y.W.C.A. and on a children's committee of the old Cleveland Humane Society. She contributed generously to philanthropic causes. She was a member of Church of the Covenant.
Survivors include, besides her husband, a son, Paul, Jr., a daughter, Mary Bonnell Jones, and two brothers, J. F. and Hugh Wick Bonnell, both of Youngstown.
Following a brief service at the family residence Mrs. Jones will be buried in Youngstown. The service will be read by Rev. Harry B. Taylor, minister of Church of the Covenant.
