Johnson and Rev. C.C. Cyphers and she was a faithful member for over 75 years. During her early years at Corinth she was a member of the senior choir and the Women’s Missionary Society.

To this union two sons and a daughter were born. At the time of Andy’s passing on June 22, 2003 , they had been happily married for 65 years.  This year would have marked their 80th anniversary. Jewel was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. She loved to cook, sew and keep her home immaculately clean. She also enjoyed baking and pineapple coconut cakes were her specialty for the church. As soon as she would arrive in the church fellowship hall, her cake sold within minutes, for the church fundraiser.
