Jewel Phillips, of Devonia, TN, age 88 went home to be with Jesus on Nov. 11, 2023 at Oak Ridge Hospital.

She had many wonderful nieces, nephews & other family members & friends.

Jewel was a faithful Christian of the Baptist faith and she loved God with all of her heart.
She loved telling others about Jesus and helping them to accept Jesus as their Savior. She was a true servant of God and loved helping people in many ways. She was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She was always encouraging & uplifting and she always left you feeling blessed each time you saw her.

She loved her family and always enjoyed spending time with them. She loved traveling & seeing the beautiful lands around her. She loved seeing the ocean, shopping and going out to eat. She loved cooking & baking & making meals for the sick, and families who was experiencing misfortune, and she loved helping anyone in need.  She was a wonderful friend to everyone.

She often sung the song “When we all get to heaven” and she talked about what a wonderful time it would be when she got to see our Savior.  She always said someday I’m gonna walk on the streets of gold. Now we can only imagine how she celebrated when she walked through heaven’s beautiful gate & saw Jesus. And I’m sure she has walked everywhere singing & shouting on the streets of gold.
