  • Charlotte Ann Jones Charlotte Ann Jones passed away peacefully on Nov. 14, 2011, in Palm Coast, Fla., one week after her 91st birthday.

    Born in Joplin, Mo., Nov. 7, 1920, daughter of Lois Walker Ground and John Wesley Ground, brother to John Wesley Ground Jr., she attended the University of Missouri and was a proud sister of Kappa Kappa Gama sorority.

    In the middle of World War II, she married James Logan Jones before he left for the Pacific in 1942, where he served in the U.S. Marine Corps. After the war, she moved to Paris, France in 1947, with her husband and her first son, James Logan Jones Jr. Another son, John Vernon Jones and a daughter Diane Jones soon followed.

    From a Midwest small town, she took the French capital by storm and charmed her way into the hearts of her French neighbors and colleagues, from the local marché to the antique dealers of the Paris Flea Market, mastering the French language while never losing her Midwestern twang. Charlotte and her family spent 16 years in Paris, France and nine years in Brussels, Belgium. After retirement in 1972, Charlotte and Jim moved to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Her beloved husband died in 1986. She moved up to Alexandria, Va. in 1999, to be near her oldest son, James Jr., spouse, Diane and their family. In 2008, she moved to Palm Coast to spend her final years near her second son, John and his wife, Wilhelmina. She will be remembered for her “joie de vivre”, her superb skills as a hostess and sense of style and her uncanny ability to use every opportunity to turn strangers into friends.

    She is survived by her three children and their spouses, Diane Jones, Wilhelmina Jones and Roma Guy; seven grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

    Burial services at Arlington Cemetery to follow.

    CABOOL, Mo. -- The Cabool Police Department is investigating an apparent murder-suicide.  Officers say it appears Tammy Fleming, 43, shot her son, Charles Loftis, 15, and then turned the gun on herself. 

    A family member went to check on Fleming late Monday and found them dead at their home in the 600 block of Sunset.

    Police say Fleming had no criminal history and there were no signs of drugs in the home, only personal despair and desperation.  They say there was a suicide note left behind that they believe was written by Fleming that might shed some light as to why she did this. "The note that was left at the scene indicated there were financial concerns for the family and apparently she saw no other way out.  Evidence at the scene indicated that she had shot the son and then took her own life,” said Officer Walter Darter.

    The son, Charles Loftis, was in the 8th grade at Cabool Middle School.  School administrators called in a crisis team of counselors from area schools to try to help students cope with the death of a classmate.  The counselors mostly listen to the students and talk to them to try to help them get through this.

    Meanwhile, Counselors at Burrell Behavioral Health are seeing a trend with their clients -- overbearing financial concerns causing depression and suicidal thoughts.

    “I would say recently especially within the last week with Thanksgiving approaching," said Brurell Counselor Brandi Noirfalise, "absolutely.”

    According to a recently released report from the Centers for Disease Control, the rate of suicides rises during times of economic hardship especially for working adults.

    “Sometimes people get so hopeless that they feel that there is absolutely no way that they can get out of the rut that they are in,” said Noirfalise.

    While the community of Cabool deals with the loss of two of its own, Noirfalise hopes this is a wake up call to anyone feeling overwhelmed--financially or emotionally,  to reach out and get help.

    "While I understand at times that suicide seems like it is the only choice," she said, "and there are some people that feel there is no other way, but there is always hope… there are people out there who are willing to help you."
