Surrounded by her family, she entered Heaven’s gates on June 17, 2019.
She was preceded in death by her parents Ernest and Mary Estella Willis Crowder and her siblings. She married Laverl “Lee” Shumway Johnson on Aug. 20,1942, and will be happy to be reunited with him since he passed away in 1982.

She will be missed by her grandchildren, Edward Dale Ewart, Casey Raymond Ewart, Mandy Estella Gonsavles, and Jennifer Lee Johnson.
Nana will also be remembered for her sweet hugs and sharing her hoarded chocolates with her great-grandchildren including Kamerin, Peyton, Caleb, Heaven, Dakota, Adrin, Ember, Orion, Heber, Linnie and Jaylee Jewell, as well as her great-great-grandchild Egypt.
Jewell was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was very active and passionate about serving in the community. She served as a member of the Ladies Community Club and GFWC for 25 years, was involved in Extension Club and Cody Country Cowbelles.
She was very talented with finance and worked outside of the home in bookkeeping and was part of the National Bank Association for Women and eventually retired as a Bank Vice President. She enjoyed cooking, crafts, dancing, and will always be remembered for her compassionate and loving nature.
