Obituary for Joni Carmilla Woolridge Charalambous

Joni Carmilla Woolridge Charalambous left us peacefully, early Sunday morning December 25 2022. Joni was born to John C. Woolridge Sr. and Alice T. Woolridge on November 26th 1967, in Evanston Illionois... a loving and resilient child who didn't think twice about speaking up in protest, for what she believed in. She graduated from Armstrong-Kennedy High School in 1985 in Richmond Virginia and moved on to receive her bachelor's, in communications, from Old Dominion University. The adventure had only just begun, from traveling the world, to counseling at schools and prisons, volunteering at churches and the Ronald McDonald house, her heart always expanded to those outside of herself. She could make a group of people laugh within a matter of seconds. She sang and danced her way through the storm.

Joni was preceded in death by her father John C. Woolridge Sr; and leaves these memories to be cherished by her children Christian, Stelios and Alexandra Charalambous. Her mother Alice T. Woolridge; brother John C Woolridge Jr; uncle Mr. Joseph A. Woolridge; three aunts Mrs. Barbara Flippens; Mrs. Hazel B. Monroe (Rudolph); Mrs. Annie Williams (James); and a host of loving relatives and friends, who will miss her greatly.

Psalms 51 verses 1 and 2
"Have mercy upon me, oh God, according to thine loving kindness; according to thine multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sins."

A private memorial service will be announced at a later date.
