The heavens have gained a special angel. Jewel Dean Harris Mooney Wilkinson, 82, went to be with our Lord on 8/3/2020 at her daughter's home, surrounded by family. She was born May 2, 1938 to Troy Wesley and Dorothy Sue (Manley) Harris, in Hamburg, Arkansas. She attended school at Ouachita Parish in Monroe, La. Jewel was a wonderful, rare and special "gem" who always had a kind word to say and a beautiful smile on her face. She loved life with a passion and it showed in everything she did. Whether it was baking, garage sale-ing with friends, pulling weeds for neighbors, visiting with sick friends, feeding her birds, making jewelry or working in her flower gardens. She enjoyed everything God created. She joined Trinity Lutheran Church in 1966. She held a broker's license and practiced real estate for over 30 years, and was part owner of San-Je's Realty. Those left to cherish her memories include son, James (Joey) Mooney, daughter and son in law Susan (Susie) and Greg Tullier. Grandchildren Michael Macaluso, Megan Tullier, Kristin Tullier, Joe Mooney, great grandchildren Alexis Tullier, Spencer Villar and Emily Macaluso. Preceded in death by her parents, brothers Don Harris, Eddie Harris, beloved husband Jack L. Wilkinson and her sweet dog Sadie. Special thanks to Hearts of Hospice Jill, Jessica, Mindy and Kwanda, Azalea Estates family and her friends from Greenbriar Hollow. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 7, 2020 from 10:00 am until the funeral services to begin for 11:45 am at Ourso Funeral Home in Gonzales. If you would like to offer the family condolences, please sign the online guestbook at www.oursofh.com

I was thinking of Mrs. Jewel recently and wasn't sure why, I now know that the red cardinal in my backyard has been her popping in to say hello. She taught me that they are visitors from heaven. <3I enjoyed every moment of knowing her, and your family is precious. Azalea was just a passing place for me, but I met so many good souls there. Mrs. Jewel was one of them. I pray for peace in the assurance that she is resting with Jesus, even when all else was forgotten, she knew nothing but love for others. My deepest condolences to your family. May she always be remembered by her love for Jesus and her heart for others.

Mother (Faye Rogers) and I are so sorry to hear of Jewel's passing. Her name fit her perfectly because she truly was a Jewel!
Nearly every time I passed her house on the was to or from my mother's house I would always see Jewel outside either working on her flowerbed or one of the neighbors. I never saw anyone that loved to weed flowerbeds so much! She always had a smile on her face and was cherished by everyone that knew her.
May she rest in peace and may God put his loving arms around her family during this difficult time. Praying for her family.

We only knew her for a short time as new to Trinity Lutheran Church. In that short time we enjoyed her smile and kind words. When she found out about Mary's health issues she always offered her prayers. She was a gracious lady and will be missed but she will smile on us from heaven. God bless her family. You are in our prayers.

Please accept my sincere condolences on Mrs. Wilkinson's death. God's peace and comfort to you at this time of bereavement. I knew her most of my 30+ years as a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. She knew Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was faithful in hearing God's Word and receiving the Sacrament of the Altar at Trinity. She was a friendly person, always bright and cheerful. Her presence will be missed.

Ms Jewel was our neighbor for several years. She had a constant smile on her face, and was always so kind to our children. Saying hello to Ms Jewel and loving on Sadie was something they did daily. We are so very lucky to have known her.

With Love,

Adam, Bryce, Amelie, and Miles Gerace

Susie,
I have been flooded with memories of our childhood when we lived across the street from each other. Then later when our moms hung out together. Your mom is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. Losing our moms is so very hard. Psalm 91 has always comforted me.

Love and hugs.
