PREWITT-STANLEY Jocelyn Nicole Prewitt-Stanley, age 35, of Columbus, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 25, 2012. Jocelyn was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, daughter of Alfreda Prewitt and the late Sam Prewitt. Jocelyn was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents Sam and Betty Mae Prewitt. Jocelyn was a strong, courageous, loving and confident woman. She also enjoyed reading, traveling and shopping (shoes and purses were her favorites). Most of all however, Jocelyn enjoyed spending time with her family and her two dogs, Brownstone and Jackson. Family always remained her number one priority and she loved nothing more than being with them. She was a caring and supportive wife, daughter, and sister who will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Theodore Stanley; beautiful daughter, Emmerson; mother, Alfreda Prewitt; siblings, Allegra and Sam Prewitt; maternal grandparents, Emanuel and Gussie Mae Jenkins; father and mother-in-law, Theodore and Mary Ann Stanley; and many other extended family members and dear friends. A graduate of Grinnell College, Jocelyn received her J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law, where she was a member of the Journal of Gender, Race, and Justice. Jocelyn was a successful litigation attorney at both the Cleveland and Columbus offices of Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease. She was a skilled litigator, a mentor to many younger attorneys and a good friend and trusted colleague to her fellow lawyers at the firm. Jocelyn was also a dedicated volunteer and member of the Board of Directors of Flying Horse Farms, a charity devoted to providing seriously ill children with special experiences at a farm in Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 30, 2012 at Broad St. United Methodist Church, 501 E.
