I am the middle daughter of Reuben Jones and Isabel Uglum Jones. . . .

All three of us girls sang in the Concordia choir. In fact, Gertrude and I were in Paul Christianson's first choir! What a joy!

Eliza is also my middle name--Lila Eliza Jones Campbell. . . .

After finishing college, I tried my hand at teaching English (my major). Teaching grammar was second nature after 4-1/2 years of Latin! But literature? I couldn't perceive any student's not enjoying reading. My minor was business. I went back to school in Minneapolis, and garnered enough credits to teach shorthand, typewriting, business English, etc. And, too, I moved from high school teaching to the junior college level. I taught until I was 80 years old--30 years at Triton College, River Grove, IL. (Suburban Chicago) Usually I had a full load, but if I decided to take time off, I did.
