Concerning Iva Jewel Welborn, her grand niece wrote the following:

Aunt Iva Jewel was a cheerful woman and good hearted. She and her husband adopted one child, Eddie, who at last account lived in Gulfport Ms.

She was an avid reader until the end of her life, often telling me that she just “didn’t read fiction”. She would read as many as 5 books a week. She loved to sit in her easy chair and read into the night. And she never missed her Wednesday Canasta game with friends, who had been playing together for years.

Unfortunately, she was murdered during a home invasion.

I was living her in Georgia at the time and her terrible end affected us all deeply.
