Mrs Jones, who died last Thursday and was in her 80s, served as a parish councillor from 1966 to 2011 and was Mayoress of Dartford in both 1998 and 2000, and deputy mayoress in 2002.
Her service was recognised in 2009 through the naming of Dulcie Close at Horns Cross.
The council expressed its sympathies to Dulcie’s husband Ivor, their two daughters, Rachel and Ceinwen, and grandchildren.
In tribute to Mrs Jones the council is making available the minutes of the council meeting in November 1966 at which she was co-opted to the council.
