She spent summers teaching at the National Music Camp in Interlochen, Michigan. She taught voice at the Interlochen Arts Academy for twelve years before moving back to Harrodsburg in 1982. Her dream was to start a community theatre. Encouraged by the success of the local production of "Annie Get Your Gun" in 1983, she formed the Ragged Edge Theater Klub. The name was later changed to the Ragged Edge Community Theatre. Jones dedicated the rest of her life to the Harrodsburg community.
