Edna “Jewel” Kinser was born on October 22, 1935, near Springtown, Texas. Jewel, age 86, entered into the presence of Christ on January 13, 2022.

Jewel graduated from Weatherford High School in 1954 with six of her close girlfriends (The Gang) who remained lifetime comrades. While a senior in high school, she met Aubrey Kinser on a blind date on the Courthouse square in Weatherford. Soon after high school, she married Aubrey, her beloved husband of 62 years. They moved nine times during Aubrey’s 20-year U.S. Army career. Jewel was the consummate military spouse, mother, and homemaker. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals, desserts, and canning jellies from her fruit trees. Jewel and Aubrey had four children: Mike, Kay, Caroline, and Carolyn.

Jewel had an unwavering faith in God. She was baptized at age 11 at North Side Baptist Church in Weatherford, Texas. Over the years, she became involved with Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, and being a church secretary at various churches. Later in life, she became a member of First United Methodist Church of Weatherford. She enjoyed being involved with hospitality, Questor and Trinity Sunday classes and “Morning Watch,” a daily online reciting of the scriptures and praying.

Jewel was active in the communities that she lived in, such as being a lifetime member of Texas PTA. She was primarily responsible for starting a new PTA unit at an elementary school in Copperas Cove, Texas. She was also a leader in Cub Scouts and Mother’s Day Out. Later in life, Jewel retired as the Assistant Food Service Director for Weatherford College. She loved to cook for the athletes and was a lifetime member of the Weatherford College Alumni Association.

Jewel spent over 6 decades with Aubrey. Their fun times included camping with family, NASCAR races, spoiling numerous English Setters and cats, and going to the Fort Worth and Parker County Stock Shows and Rodeos. Jewel’s daily passions included playing 42, card games, and solving crossword puzzles. Her favorite TV show was the soap opera “The Young and Restless” since its inception in 1973. Jewel was a fan of the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, and Kentucky Derby.

Jewel was preceded in death by her husband Aubrey, her parents William Chilcutt and Ina Chenault Chilcutt, and brother Lee Chilcutt.
