Jewell was born on Aug. 24, 1917, in Campbell, Mo., to Lester Crawford and Elsie Allen Crawford. She married Billy Ray Crow on Aug. 12, 1949, in Carlsbad. She lived in Carlsbad until his death in 1992, when she moved to Roswell to be near her daughter, Nancy Moore.
In addition to her daughter Nancy, she is survived by her daughters: Stephany Wilson (husband, Thomas) of Placitas, N.M., and Judith LeBus of Midland, Texas; four grandchildren: Stephany Moore (husband, Alan Kerr), Garth Moore (wife, Sarah Zolad), Lauren Atkinson and Ryan Thompson (wife, Amy); three great-grand-children: Lillien Moore, Emerson Moore and Azure Atkinson; and a sister, Julia Beaune of Flint, Mich. She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; a sister, Josephine Straley; a brother, Earl Crawford; and a son-in-law, Jack LeBus.
Jewell worked at automotive parts manufacturing companies in Flint, Mich., before moving to Carlsbad. In Carlsbad, she was a secretary at Potash Company of America, and, for many years, was secretary to the superintendent of the Carlsbad Public Schools until her retirement. She was a member of the Carlsbad Pilot Club, an organization of business women.
