Edna Henrietta Jewell

March 14th, 1922 – January 7th, 2011

Our much loved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother left us to be with her Lord and Savior at the age of 88 years young.

Edna will be lovingly remembered by her five children, Allan (Anita) Jewell, Earl Jewell, Kathleen (Jim) Dennison, Dianne (Randy) Brown, and Pam (Rex) Jewell-Slizak; her eight grandchildren, Nikki, Eric (Carly), Stephanie (Gary), Lisa, Jim, Jordan, Megan and Marty; her three great-grandchildren, Jonathan, Madeleine and Livia; one brother, Raymond (Betty) Zieske; three sisters, Ann (Len) Wolgram, Doreen Hanson, and Gladys (Len) Ochs; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. She was preceded in death by her husband Julian in 2007; her sister, Eleanor Krebs; and her brother, Reinhold Zieskie.

Mother was born in Greenwald, Manitoba to Gustav and Huldina Zieskie. She was a special person, loved by all and memories of her will be cherished by her family and friends. We will miss her dearly. In 1947 she married Julian Jewell and they were married for 60 years. They raised their family here in Vernon. Mother was known for her loving ways, kind spirit and gentle manner. She was sustained by her strong faith, love of life and always counted her blessings.

Interment in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery will precede a Celebration Of Edna’s Life which will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 5151 Alain Road, on Friday, January 14th, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Roy White officiating.
