Mrs. Rodgers will be remembered by one word she practiced so diligently - LOVE! She loved GOD and HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST! She loved all of her family members and constantly told them so! She loved all who faithfully and professionally cared for her Dr. Oakley Jordan, Heritage Place, Methodist Germantown, and Quince Nursing!

Jewell Rodgers loved Southern Gospel Music, frequently attending the "old time gospel and bluegrass" music played at Hernando Museum and Gospel singing at the Germantown Baptist Church MerryMakers Senior Adult dinners!
