"To everything there is a season, a time to every purpose under Heaven" and the time for Jewett, loving husband, daddy, and papa, answered his call to that Heavenly land on Saturday, December 16, joining family and friends who have gone on before, as Hope, his wife of 58 years and his children were gathered at his bedside. As his courageous battle with cancer ends, the cherished memories left behind will always remain. In his weakness and pain, he still maintained his faith in the Lord saying "Ain't God Good!" His battle is over. He is now rejoicing on the hills of glory, free from pain and heartaches. Jewett was not just a husband and father; he was a loving friend to all who had the privilege of knowing him. His love of God was made known through his generosity and patience with friends and loved ones. Jewett faithfully served the Lord in positions as Sunday School Superintendent, Sunday School Teacher, deacon and music director. He also faithfully served his country through being a member of the National Guard for 28 years. Yes, he will be missed more than words can express. We love you.
