WOOSTER -- Christine Elisabeth Jones was born on June 26, 1949 and passed away on June 28, 2013 at the age of 64.

She was the first child born to Richard K. and Rebecca W. Jones. After graduating from Wooster High School in 1967, she earned a bachelor's degree in education at Wheelock College in Boston in 1971.

She answered the call to improve the lives of children and families by accepting her first teaching position in Cali, Columbia. She remained in Columbia for 15 years and served as an educator, as well as a curriculum development specialist for many schools in the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Thereafter she returned to the U.S. to continue her teaching career in Dallas and environs.

After her retirement she returned home to Wooster where she continued to serve others in need. She was an avid sports fan, who enjoyed her family life and summer travel to Canada. She was always ready to accept the challenge of a competitive Skip-Bo game.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Scott R. Jones.

She is survived by her brother, Kirk W. Jones, Nashville, Tenn.; her uncle, Bill (Gail) Jones, Dallas; niece, Stacey Jones, Columbus; nephew Eric (Sara) Jones, Wilmington, N.C.; and cousins, Kathie Schaum (Jim) of Mansfield, Doug Anderson (Daniel Salvucci) of Hardwick, Mass., Karen Schreier of Madison, Wisc., Ryall Jones, Sackes, Texas, Michael Jones, Chicago, Kevin Jones, Farmersbranch, Texas, and Jeffrey Jones, Wylie, Texas; and her very special friend, Lois Noletti.

The family would like to thank the special people at Westview Manor who gave her support and love throughout this last year

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greater Wayne County and/or the Humane Society.

A memorial service will be performed at First Presbyterian Church in Wooster on July 14, with the time to be announced. Those who wish may send condolences to

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Chris Jones. She was one of my best friends at Wooster High School from 1965-67. I thought about her over the years but never managed to find her via Google or any of the other usual sources. It's a shame a takes a death to reconnect. It appears that she had a wonderful, interesting life full of significant contributions, and I'm so sorry I never got to know her as an adult or to share what became of our lives. I'm also sorry I never got to say how much I appreciated her friendship during those teenaged years. My condolences to her family and to those who loved her.
