December 4, 1925 - January 12, 2020
Rachel “Ricki” Erb Jones passed away at the age of 94, January 12, 2020, surrounded by family and loved ones. Ricki was born December 4, 1925 to Winter Ghlee and Harriet Ann Hayes Erb in Bend, Oregon. When her father died when she was 3, her family moved to Soda Springs, Idaho to live with her grandparents. She attended the necessary schooling and went on to Montana State College where she entered the nursing program. She was a nurse at the Camp Roberts, California military hospital during WWII. Ricki married Teddy Charles Seerie Jones on December 31, 1945 in Provo, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. She retired from US West in 1990. Ricki served for many years in the German and Latin extraction program for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During her lifetime she served in many other capacities for the church she loved. She always had a strong sense of duty to search for her ancestors, completing two personal history journals. Her favorite things in life were family, church, music, dancing, patriotism, needle work, reading, and especially holidays. Ricki was a wonderful cook, specializing in comfort foods. She was also passionate about nature and the beauties of the world. She is survived by her four children, Kathleen (Wesley) Powell, Shelley (Kim) Bonnett, Russell (Dolores) Jones, and Gregory (Jason Walker) Jones; 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, and sister, Martha Hoult. Ricki was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Ted, two brother and two sisters. She will also be missed by her furry companion, Honey No No. The family would like to express a special thank you to her wonderful ward family, who were so dedicated in ministering such loving care to Dad and Mom throughout the years. We would also like to express our love to Mom’s Bristol Hospice nurses, but especially Jess. We couldn’t have done it without all of you. Private graveside services and interment will be held for family only at the Provo City Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at www.bergmortuary.com.
