In Loving Memory

Carolyn Joyce (Jones) Epperson

06/01/1962 – 04/09/2020

Carolyn Joyce Epperson (Jones) 57, of League City, Texas was called home to the Peace of Christ on April 9, 2020.  Carolyn was born on June 1, 1962 in Wichita, Kansas and raised in Goddard, Kansas. 

Carolyn is survived by her three best friends: her daughter Sarah (William) Wallace, her son Jordan (Virjinia) Harp and husband of 24 years, John Epperson. 

John and Carolyn fell in love the moment they met and were married after only seven weeks and two days in Las Vegas, Nevada.  John and Carolyn moved to Friendswood, Texas in 2005 and to League City, Texas in 2014.

Carolyn was preceded in death by her mother Bonnie Jones (Ballinger).  She is also survived by; her father Clayton Jones, sister Connie (Dan) Murphy, and brother Wayne (Sandy) Jones. 

Carolyn was a patriot, a Baptist, a salty sea dog, a Wizard of Oz fanatic, Oak Ridge Boys superfan, an animal lover, a decorator, but most importantly she was a child of God.  She was committed to Christ and safe in his salvation since her teenage years. 

Her heart was full of love and sentiment for her family and friends.  Although her live was full of challenges, she graced the world with the love of a mother in everything she did.

Carolyn will be laid to rest in Forest Park East on April 15, 2020.  Due to current events, this will be a private service limited to immediate family.

Condolences may be sent to the Epperson family at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home at www.jeterfuneralhome.com.

  8. John, Sarah, and Jordan,
    I am so sorry for your loss! Words can never express the hurt in my heart for you. Carolyn was always my sweet cousin whom I could count on when I was down. I know she has been in a lot of pain the last few years and at least she is not suffering from that anymore. I also have no doubt that she is rejoicing in heaven right now with Aunt Bonnie and my Dad! I can't even imagine how many relatives she has greeted and hugged by now. it's ok to grieve in any way you need to. I love you all!

  9. John, You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wife Carolyn. You and your family are in my prayers. Lean on God through this very difficult time. He will carry you through it.

    John, Sarah, and Jordan,
    I am very sorry for your loss. Even though it had been a few years since I saw Carolyn last, I can still picture her big, bright smile and can hear her laughter! She and I shared the same addiction for a period of time…managing our crops on Farmville! Carolyn was always sweet and kind to me. My sincerest condolences and prayers are with you all. I pray God gives you strength and comfort during this difficult time.

  11. John,
    My condolences to you and your family.
    May you find solace even in the simplest of words during these painful unsolicited times.
    Lean on friends, family and above all, God – and you will find the strength to carry you through.

  12. John,
    My heartfelt sympathy is only overridden by the comfort that you and your family have by being that of a true believer. God never gives us more than we can handle. And it is more than okay to confide in and allow your God fearing friends to lend you an ear and a helping hand during these times of sometimes confusing emotions. Very few grown men know emotions other than laughter, anger, and sarcasm. To be with a good friend and shed tears for your loving wife, Carolyn, can and will grow all men's emotions. At that time we will share and know a few more emotions like sadness, frustration, fear, loneliness, jealousy, empathy, and especially love. No one can replace Carolyn, who was a loving wife, a loving Mother, a loving sister, and a loving friend. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you as you rejoice and be thankful for the time that God allowed us to share with Carolyn. God will oversee then you share the beautiful positive times you and your family have shared with Carolyn.

  13. John. I am so sorry for your loss. I know Carolina was your best friend and you loved her very much. She is now at peace and no longer in pain and I'm sure she'll watch over you forever. May she now Rest In Peace. I will keep you in my prayers.

    John, Sarah and Jordan
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers. My heart is saddened at the passing of Carolyn. I have so many beautiful memories of times we spent as family at Grandma B's house. I love being able to share and pray and be a part of cousins lives through FaceBook and I will miss that time with Carolyn. It made the miles between us seem few., and allowed us as cousins to keep connected. I will miss her greatly. She is definitely in Heaven with her dear momma, grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. I can hear the Ballinger laugh as I sit here and think about our family in Heaven. I pray that you will feel Gods Peace that passes all understanding during this time. Hugs and prayers to all of you. May your beautiful memories bring you comfort during this time.

  15. Sarah,
    Your friends and co-workers at Johnson Space Center want you to know that you are loved and in our hearts during this difficult time. Your mom's obituary was beautiful and we know that she lived a good life, and raised a great daughter. I know that this time of loss and the overall challenge of our current situation are a lot to deal with, but you are a strong individual who will always be an overcomer. We hope to see you in better times soon! All of our best to your family and you are always in our prayers.

  16. John, I never had the privilege of meeting or knowing Carolyn, but I find strength and hope in knowing she was a child of the King. She spent her first Easter in the presence of her Savior. She is seeing the streets of gold and hearing the praises of the angels. Her reality now is our hope. The death, burial, and resurrection we just celebrated says this is not the end. She is alive, she is pain free, and she is celebrating. Praying for your comfort and strength until that time we are all enjoying Heaven together!

  17. Ned Dekerlegand

    John, my sincerest condolences to you and your family in this very difficult time. Sorry for your loss, will keep you in my prayers.

  18. John,
    I'm sincerely sorry for your loss. I completely agree with what Todd said. She is in a happy place now! We will continue to pray for you and your family. Please keep your focus on Him who was, is, and will forever be with you and your family, especially during this tough time. He offers Himself to carry all the heavy burdens and struggles for us, so give them to Him. Then, you will find rest and peace.

  19. John,
    I really sorry your loss. In this difficult time, I hope God helps you and your family to be in peace, knowing that your wife is now in a much better place.

  20. John,
    So sorry to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers are with you and her extended family.
