Born in November, 1923, Jewell learned at a very young age how to be independent, courageous, and resourceful. With her sharp mind and quick wit, Jewell was a survivor who never shied away from a challenge or a hard day’s work. Jewell lived for her family, and always made sure they felt loved and cared for. Jewell was a devoted wife, mother, and Christian who attended Gateway Church of Christ and was an active member there for over 30 years.
Jewell loved to garden, sew, quilt, cook, and spend time with her sisters and family. In her later years, she moved from her home of 90 years to live close to her granddaughters and son. There she joined the senior center and Oxford Church of Christ, and was active in the community. Jewell will always be remembered for being a strong, self -sufficient, kind, and loving person who was always thankful for what she had. She will never be forgotten.
