Jewell A. Noe-Haskett Feb. 15, 1921 - March 7, 2019

Jewell A. Noe-Haskett, age 98, of Sheridan, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, March 7, 2019 surrounded by her loving family at Wellbrooke of Westfield. Born Feb. 15, 1921 in Hamilton County, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Virgil and Jessie (Walker) King. She was a 1939 graduate of Sugar Creek High School, and would live most of her adult life around the Sheridan area.

Jewell was a firm believer in the strength of family. She kept her family at the center of her life, and in turn became the center of theirs. She was a dedicated farm wife whose top priority was taking care of those that she loved most in this world, especially when it came to her grandchildren. Jewell not only raised the kids and took care of the housework, but also helped her late husband Lavern with the their farming responsibilities. She and Laverne also ran the family excavating business for many years.

Jewell was a woman of unwavering faith in God. She was very active within her church family. She also believed in the importance of being active within the community. It didn’t really matter what type of family you were; blood relation, church family, or part of the area she was proud to call home, you were part of Jewell’s life.

Jewell is survived by her sons, Richard M. Noe (Melissa) of Monument, Colo., and Ken E. Noe (Lynn) of Sheridan; step son, David M. Haskett (Tish) of Carmel; daughters, Connie Dunn of Kirklin, Karen Denny of Sheridan and Vicki Nunery Hittle (Max) of Indianapolis; 13 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren. Jewell is also survived by two sisters, Joan Brown of Frankfort, and Phyllis Powell of Texas. Of 11 total children, Joan and Phyllis are the last of the family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; grandson, Justin Laverne Noe; son in law, Keith Dunn; five brothers, Kenneth, Roscoe, Gifford, Bob and Zeke King; and three sisters, Velma Boone, Dortha Mae Boone and Lavonne Patchette. Jewell was also preceded in death by two loving husbands. On Dec. 31, 1939, Jewell married Kenneth Lavern Noe; he preceded her in death on Feb. 1, 1989. She would later marry Max Haskett on Feb. 22, 1994; he preceded her in death on Aug. 20, 2002.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 18, 2019 at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 East 10th Street, Sheridan, Indiana. Burial will follow at Crown View Cemetery, in Sheridan. Jewell’s grandson, Cam Nunery, will be officiating.
