  Mary “Carol” (Webb) Jewell Passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, January 16, 2023. Carol was born December 24, 1946, in St. Louis, Missouri. The fifth of Frank and Mary Bell Webb’s eight children. She moved to rural Howell County in 1955 and attended Koshkonong School. Outgoing and studious, she caught the eye of young Kenneth Jewell on the school bus one day. A few years after graduation they were wed. They spent 54 happily married years together.

  Carol was inspired by nature and had an abiding appreciation and respect for all living things. An eternal optimist, she had a knack for finding four leaf clovers. She loved music, and she loved to laugh. She could relate to most situations in life back to a “Seinfield” episode.

She leaves behind many nieces, nephews, friends, acquaintances, and memories.

  Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Mary Bell Webb, parent-in-laws Ted and Ruby Jewell; one brother, Joseph; two sisters; Joy and Janet; one half-sister, Isabelle; two nieces; Beth and Theresa, and brother-in-law, Thomas Comeau.
