Our dear Jewel passed away peacefully in her home on June 11, 2021 at the age of 97 years.

She married Norman and had three children. After he passed, she married Jim and added three step children and their families to hers. After his passing she gained a close companion in Boyd and added his three children and their families to her family as well. Her lineage consists of three children, five grandchildren, five great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, three siblings, two husbands, her close companion, one child and two grandchildren.
Jewel loved caring for her family and was always there for them. After some years of being a housewife, she worked for a CPA firm. During her time there when someone came in the office for the second time she always called them by name.
She attended the United Methodist church and was active in the church choir, supported church events and groups. She enjoyed being part of a women’s singing group “The Methodetts”. After her retirement she spent time with family and friends often dancing on the weekends.
She was an avid bowler enjoying leagues and making new friends there. Jewel was a fan of the Utah Jazz, she watched the games and followed the players for many years.
Jewel was a very caring, giving and loving person. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
