She loved working with her hands, and during her idle moments loved to crochet and embroidery. Many of the items she produced are greatly cherished by family and friends today. She was the glue that held her family together through rough times. Jealeta is preceded in death by husbands, Clarence and John C. Dews; all her immediate birth family; and great-granddaughter, Cassandra Maddux.
