Dear Rita R. Jones passed from this life early on Wednesday, July 3, 2019.

President Calvin Rock invited Mrs. Rita Jones to serve as the dean of freshmen women from 1972 to 1978 at Oakwood College.

After serving as associate dean of women at Andrews University from 1978 to 1986, she returned to Oakwood in 1986 and again served as dean of women until her retirement. Dean Jones believed that it was God who led her in the work of a dean and that He gave her the wherewithal to do it.

Please keep her family in your prayers during this time of bereavement.
