She spent most of the remaining years of her long life in the Ada and Roff area. Here she made lifelong friends.
Jewell was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Ada until her recent move to Edmond's Bradford Village Assisted Living. In Edmond, she was close to surviving family members, including her daughter, Kay (Bell) Cowden, and her granddaughter, Deborah Hanska and husband, Steve. Her grandson, Tim Cowden and wife, Monique, visited often from Overland Park, Kansas.
Great-grandchildren who she left with fond memories are Sarah, Joe, Anna and Jack Cowden, and Garrett and Jesse Hanska. Jewell is also survived by her sister, Billie Barnes, who resides at Baptist Village Assisted Living in Ada.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Collins of Roff.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association of Oklahoma, 2448 E. 81st St., Ste. 3000, Tulsa, OK 74137.
The family wishes to thank all the caregivers at Ada Baptist Home and Bradford Village for their commitment to Jewell's health and comfort these past few years.
