In Loving Memory

Dear Family and Friends of Jewell Dean,

Let's take a moment to remember Jewell with stories and memories from her life.  

An online memorial is hardly perfect, but in this digital age with so many far-flung loved ones, this is one way for us to remember her now and in the future.

"Happy b'day, mom!"

"On the Good Silver

Impeccably groomed,
she served on freshly pressed white linen,
the relish tray, pressed depression glass,
breakfast and lunch served on break-proof Corningware,
dinner on the wedding china.  Primrose.  Lennox.

Newly murdered Jackson Perkin's peace roses in a Waterford vase, center table.
Hands clean and in our laps atop starched linen napkins,
she served us roast beef and steamed spinach, baked yam,
and cream cheese stuffed pears,
with a smile for our dessert.

Every meal for seventy years,
she outdid herself
for our nutrition.
And always on the good silver.

Etiquette and grammar lessons
five cents extra.

A poem for my epic mother,
forever now beyond the pale.

Mere words cannot compare...

By Molly Berke"

"I was honored to have been able to visit just days before her passing, to introduce my son Michael to his great-grandmother. I will never forget the moment they first exchanged smiles and held hands."
