Read more about the life story of Victoria and share your memory.
Victoria June Jones was affectionately called “June” or “Vicki” by many. She was also given the nickname “Little Red” by her late Uncle GD Price.
Victoria was born in Queen Anne, Maryland, on June 24, 1952, to the late and great Walter Price and Helen Louise Pinkney Price. She received her education in the Talbot
County public school system. Victoria married her childhood sweetheart and the love of her life, Cornell Jones, Sr., on March 13, 1971. They were married for 52 wonderful years. From this union, they had two beautiful children, Cornell Jones, Jr., and Geraldine Jones. In her early years, she attended church at Allen A.M.E. Church in Thomas Town, Maryland. Victoria loved her entire family and treated everyone equally.
Victoria worked at numerous jobs, but Yale Sportswear and Harbortown were her favorites. Victoria loved to dance and sing, which she displayed at many family functions. She also loved to cook her famous dishes, including meatloaf, yellow rice, fried potatoes, goulash, sweet potato pie, and deviled eggs. If she could help her family, she never hesitated. She would help anyone. She never once left her daughter’s side while she was in the hospital, and she made sure she had everything that she needed. When Victoria was younger, she loved playing horseshoes and
different games such as Checkers and Connect 4. She would always joke that nobody could guess her age because she looked so young. She had routines that she stuck to, like calling her daughter and her sisters every day. She also loved visiting her sister, Sylvia Price, every Sunday afternoon at the nursing home to take her lunch since she didn’t take a liking to the food there. Victoria was also like a second mother to some. She was a phenomenal and caring woman.
Victoria leaves to mourn: her lifetime partner and best companion, Cornell Jones, Sr.; two children, Cornell Jones, Jr., and Geraldine Jones; five grandchildren, Leon (Sierra) Nichols, Jr., Jadijah Nichols, Alijon Jones, Leonjah Nichols, and Leondrea Nichols; five great-grandchildren, Jahmir, King, Serenity, Infinity, and Leon III; four sisters, Vercie (Charles) Wilson, Sylvia Price, Cherry Price, and Shirley “Stuffy” Thomas; along with two brothers, Herbert Price and Vernon Price, Sr.; one aunt, Mary Francis Smith; sisters-in-law, Iola Jones, Sharon Jones, Edwina Price, and Maurita Jones; two brothers-in-law, Thomas Jones and William Jones; along with a host of nieces, great-nieces, great-great-nieces, nephews, great-nephews, and great-great-nephews; and her two closest associates, Pat and Donna.
She loved all her grandchildren and checked on them on a regular basis. She was preceded in death by her mother, Helen Price; father, Walter Price; two brothers, James Price and Rayfield Pinkney; three sisters, Savannah Britt, Shirley Thomas, and Shelba Nichols; one great-niece, Ti’Shee Bratcher; one sister-in-law, Alvoya Jones-Frazier; and her beloved favorite uncle, GD Price from California.
