She attended school in Dallas, graduating from James Madison High School in 1963. She went on to graduate from Bishop College in southeastern Dallas, TX, with a Bachelors. She then went on to pursue and complete her Master’s degree in Social Work at the University of Texas at Arlington. In 1981 she married a long time friend in Charles (Chuck) Jones and they sired a son Alphonso W. Jones. During her lifetime she had significant impact on the lives and careers of her children, nieces and nephews. My stepmother Dorothy was not your typical second mom, she worked tirelessly to stand as a positive role model and influence as both Mom and Auntie. She understood that the way forward would be to instill hope and confidence and to develop character in the coming generation. She was Ma to myself and my siblings, and Aunt D to my cousins, and she was Grandma D to her grandchildren. Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, Sylvester and Dollie Horn, her sister Geraldine Horn, and her nephew Darrell Brown. She is survived by her husband Chuck Jones, her sister Queen Esther Dixon, her son Alphonso Jones, her niece Camilla Austin, her stepsons David, Kevin and Jason Jones, her step-daughter Michele Jones, their respective wives Antoinette and Angela. Thirteen grandchildren, one great grandson, a host of nieces and nephews and cousins.

Dorothy......The love and joy you have relinquished to the world cannot ever be equaled. Your happiness and tone about life was was the realism that still affects me to this day. When there was a challenge you were direct and impactful. Your blessings were limitless along with your sense of humor and honesty. You’ve left this earth to be with our Lord and Savior but you will continue to watch out for your family and friends. Love you so much!!!! Gary , Alane and Autumn
