Joseph Holton Jones, 70, a retired architect, of 1100 Nottingham Road, Wawaset Park, died yesterday at the Eugene du Pont Memorial Hospital after a short illness.

Born in Wilmington, the son of Joseph Holton Jones St. and Martha Fielding Pickels Jones, he was a 1917 graduate of the University of Delaware.

After serving in the U.S. Army during World War I, he studied architecture, and was associated with the Dollar, Bonner, Blake and Manning architectural firm at his retirement in 1960.

Mr. Jones was a member of the vestry of Trinity Episcopal Church, president and treasurer of the Church Club of Delaware, Trinity representative on the Wilmington Council of Churches and organist and choir director at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church.

He was also active in support of the National Christian Endeavor and the Kiyosato Educational Experiment project in Tokyo, Japan. He was treasurer of the Delaware Swedish Colonial Society.

Mr. Jones is survived by his widow, the former Sarah McCrea Chapman; a stepson, Alfred McCrea Chapman of Ann Arbor, Mich., and two step-grandchildren.

Memorial services will be at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon at Trinity Episcopal Church, Delaware Ave. and Adams St. Interment will be private.

There will be no viewing.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Trinity Episcopal Church or to the Washington Cathedral, Mount St. Alban, Washington, D.C.
