Jewell was born in Limestone Cove, Tn., but lived in Johnson City most of her life. She was the daughter of Sidney McCoy Hixson, and Minnie Campbell Hixson.
She was predeceased by Geneva, Howard, Clarence and Roy Hixson, Frank Campbell, Fred and PJ Menchey, and Jenny Mae Roderick. Jewell is survived by, Ken, Sid, Tony and Harry (Barb) Hixson, Loretta Kinley (Bill), Margaret Menchey, Betty Daniels (Lanny), Jan Holland, and Susie Q.
She loved quoting bible verses, playing games, and watching wildlife in the yard. Jewell loved all of her babies, and loved to go shopping and visiting with family members in their homes. Her spontaneous laughter at the antics of 'Lucy' and 'Barney Fife' filled our hearts with joy. She always lived happily in the present moment. Many thanks to all of her wonderful caregivers for their TLC. In memory of Jewell's joyful life, and in lieu of flowers, please extend an act of loving kindness and compassion from your heart out into the world.
Due to current CDC recommendations, a private graveside service for the immediate family will be conducted in the Washington County Memory Gardens.
