Memorial Celebration for Dee Jones

Friends may visit with family members on Saturday September 10, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Irving Elementary School. A celebration of life honoring her memory will immediately follow. Irving Elementary is located at 4727 Pine Ave, Hammond, Indiana 46327. Flowers and cards may be sent to the school.

It is with a heavy heart, that I inform you of the passing of our most special Panther, Mrs. Denitra "Dee" Jones, our title I Family Involvement Coordinator.  Mrs. Dee was a devoted Panther for over 20 years.  She not only impacted the lives of those connected to Irving, but her beautiful strength and personality touched the lives of many throughout the entire School City of Hammond.  She will be sorely missed.  At this time we do not have any information regarding arrangements, but I will keep you updated via our website.  You may also contact our office for more information later in the week.  Please keep the Jones family, as well as our Irving family in your thoughts and prayers.

Mrs. Robinson

Doors open for breakfast at 8:30, all students should arrive by 8:45 in order to eat.  Students eating at home should be at school no later than 9:00.
