Loretta Rosser Payne Jewell
Heaven gained another angel. Our precious Loretta went to be with our Lord today. We will always love and miss you — until we are all together again.
Loretta Ann “Sis” Jewell, 85, of Luray, went home to be with our Lord and Savior on November 28, 2020. She peacefully passed at Skyview Springs Nursing and Rehab in Luray.
She was born on July 5, 1935, and was a daughter of the late James B. and Daisy Stoneberger Rosser of Luray.
She is survived by a daughter, Terri I. Rhinehart (Randy) of Stanley; four sons, Jeffrey C. Jewell (Barbara) of Shenandoah, David C. Jewell (Linda) and Franklin E. Jewell, both of Luray, and Tommy Jewell (Edwina) of Stanley; 11 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
Loretta was preceded in death by her husband, Ervin C. Jewell; a daughter, Melinda Samuels; three sons, Keith Payne, Ricky A. Payne and Danny C. Jewell Sr.; two sisters, Violet Wilson and Mildred Level; and seven brothers, Julius, Edwin, William, James, Eugene, Robert and Thomas Rosser.
Mom loved life in general. She loved music and loved to dance. She also enjoyed cookouts, flowers, Bingo and loved her whatnots. Mom really enjoyed her talks with best friend Jamie “Beatrice” Cave.
A memorial service for our beloved mother and grandmother will be held at a later date.
