Sister Margaret Jones, 77, a teacher and chaplain, died Saturday, Sept. 6, of cancer in Assisi House in Aston Township, Delaware County. She had been a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia for 55 years. Originally named Margaret Jones, she became Sister Jozeta Marie soon after entering the religious order in the 1950s. She changed her name back to Margaret Jones when the Catholic Church allowed nuns to do so. Born in Detroit, she later moved to Allentown, where she graduated from Allentown Central Catholic High School.
