      LINESVILLE - Ruth Elizabeth Jones Irons, 89, of Linesville, passed away Sunday, Feb. 6, 2005.
      Born in Butler June 28, 1915, she was the daughter of William D. and Margaret Jones.
      She graduated from Butler Senior High School, received her bachelor's degree at Slippery Rock University and her master's degree at Edinboro University.
      She first taught at Lyndora School in Butler Township, but soon moved to Linesville, where she was instrumental in establishing kindergarten in the school district. After her children began school, she taught kindergarten for 22 years. Following her teaching career, she was the moving force in establishing the Linesville Community Public Library, where she then served as president of the board of trustees for seven years.
      She was an active member of the United Methodist Church, where she served as lay leader for 10 years. She taught Sunday school for most of her adult life.
      She also served as a member of the board of directors of the Slippery Rock University Alumni Association for 22 years. In addition, she served on the board of directors of the Greenville Community Concerts Association and the Linesville Historical Society. She was a member of the Crawford County Federated Library System for 20 years and a member of the Conneaut Education Association, the National Education Association and the Pennsylvania State Employees Retirement System.
      On Dec. 12, 1942, she married Howard Irons, who passed away in February 2002. She was also preceded in death by a sister, Mrs. Charles B. Smith (Naomi); and a brother, Dr. Robert W. Jones.
