Larry, Teresa, Patty and family.

We were so very sorry to hear of Jewels passing. She was a beautiful person, inside and out.

Her parents gave her a fitting name, for such a sweet soul.


May our Lord Bless and Keep You.

I was so blessed to have gone to school with Jewel and we became GOOD friends graduating together in 1954. Jewel was such a beautiful person. God has called another "angel" home. May God be with her family during this difficult time. She will certainly be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
