We met Jewell at the lake (we were neighbors of Bill Andrews). She was truly a beautiful person inside and out. Chuck and Joyce Patrick

I am going to miss seeing Miss Jewel on Friday nights, at the Moose. I enjoyed visiting with her. She always looked so nice, but, her smile was her best accessory. Miss Jewel will not be forgotten.

Aunt Jewel, over the years we've had many, many phone conversations and every conversation ended with you telling me, "Goodbye, Darlin'. I love you." And now I'm telling you, the sweetest woman I have ever known, "Goodbye, Darlin'. I love you and I always will." RIP, Aunt Jewel.

I remember when Aunt Jewel would come from Michigan to visit, she would kiss all of us with those bright pink lips of hers, us kids loved it just as we loved her! We love and we will never forget you Aunt Jewel! You were the best aunt ever! Fly high with the angels! Love you!

My deepest sympathy to Miss Jewel's family and many friends.

I was blessed to be one of the many (friends). Jewel was a treasure to me and to all her friends at the Moose. She brought her smile and friendship to so many Friday nights and had so much fun singing karaoke. I only hope I can live up to her example of how to enjoy life.
Thank you, Jewel. For your friendship and kindness. I will never forget either one.

But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you
That day that God called you home”
