POTTSBORO – Jewell Castle Egner passed away Thursday, February 27, 2014 in Sherman, Texas.

Jewell was born Friday, January 30, 1920. She was 94 years old. She was the daughter of Gertrude and John Castle and was born in Nippa, Kentucky. She was the second to last of five children and has outlived her brothers and sister.

She graduated from Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky with a Bachelor of Science in Homemaking. While at school, she crossed paths with a dashing young man dressed in his uniform from A & M who was there from Texas only to do a demonstration for his father's machinery and paint company Egner Brothers. They corresponded for a year and then married. The marriage lasted 52 years until Paul Egner died in 1995 from complications from Parkinsons.

Jewell was a light to all of us, never complaining and always smiling. She was our earth angel.

She is survived by her daughter Patricia Moorehead & husband Bob; son Paul EgnerIII & wife Brenda; granddaughter Wendy Zavaleta & husband Tony; grandson Wes Brown & wife Rosa; five great- grandsons: Chad Thompson, Brent Thompson, Alexander Zavaleta, Daniel Brown and Nicolas Brown.

Private interment to be announced.

We love you mom.
