Jewel married Mr Averett after Marvin Dunnahoe's death. Her youngest daughter, Shirley Dunnahoe, was one of my dearest friends and I spent many nights at their house, waking up to the smell of bacon and buttermilk biscuits. Ms Dunnahoe always had a big smile and was such a joy to be around.
Jewel Dunnahoe Averett, 82, of Rohwer, died Saturday, Oct 1, at Leisure Lodge Nursing Home in McGehee. She was the widow of Leonard Averett and a member of Kelso Baptist Church.
