Charlotte L. Jones, 53, homemaker, foster parent

Charlotte L. Jones, a homemaker and foster parent, died Jan. 16 of an aneurysm at York Hospital in York, Pa. She was 53.

A former Reservoir Hill resident who had lived in York since 1992, Mrs. Jones worked for 12 years as a production manager at Insulation Innovations Inc. in Hunt Valley.

After leaving the company in 1989, she devoted herself to raising foster children in her home. "Between 1990 and 1999, she fostered 38 children, and later adopted one," said her husband of 12 years, Waverly A. Jones.

Charlotte Lockhart was born and raised in Baltimore and attended city public schools. She was active in the Cub Scouts and enjoyed interior decorating and collecting antiques.

A memorial service was held Sunday.

In addition to her husband, survivors include two sons, Terrell Williams of Randallstown and Syiden Jones of York; a daughter, Yvette Williams of Baltimore; three stepdaughters, Pamela Jones and Patricia Jones, both of Baltimore, and Tamacka Spruill of Brooklyn, N.Y.; and nine grandchildren.
