Dave Jones, a long-time resident of the Georgetown area, died Wednesday the 18th of June at Sun Bridge Healthcare Center.

Born in 1928 in Madison, S.D., Dave received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Education from South Dakota State College in 1951. He continued her education at the University of Minnesota, from which he received his M.Ed. in Nursing in 1955.

Dave taught Nursing at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in the mid-1960s and worked at various psychiatric nursing facilities throughout western Massachusetts in the 1970s. In a career shift, he took a position as a librarian assistant at Franklin County Technical School, Turners Falls, where he worked until her retirement.

Dave loved good food, friends and socializing, enjoyed going to movies and plays with friends, and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room.

He is survived by her niece, Tabitha Winslow and several grandnieces, all of whom live in southern California, and brought great joy to his later years.
