Jewell Collins Obituary

Jewell Collins, 74, Paoli, Indiana who Passed February 24, 2024 at Springs Valley Meadows in French Lick, IN. Born May 14, 1949, in Paoli IN.  She was the daughter of Bill and Dora Collins.

Jewell worked for Stone Belt Services for over 20 years.

The people who are close to Jewell would describe her as an extremely fun person who loved life and brought joy to everyone around her. 

Jewell was into everything outdoors.  She loved horses, swimming, and camping with the Patoka Lake area being her favorite camping spot.  She was also a huge fan of fishing.  She absolutely loved to fish.  Her love of fishing started at a young age with her father taking her fishing when she was just a little girl.  Some might even say that she was fishing before she could even walk.

Another hobby that Jewell really enjoyed was making handmade jewelry.  She loved making jewelry and even eventually made her own personal jewelry shop in a mini log cabin building at their property.

Jewell was also very passionate about animals, with dogs being her favorite.  They even had a farm with horses, cattle, and sheep at one time.
