Jewell was born July 10, 1924.  She went to the Lord at Easter, April 23, 2011.  She was the third child of her homestead parents.  She had a photo-sharp memory of her 87 year life which included The Great Depression, The Dust Bowl era, WWII, and her little family of seven children in Cut Bank, Montana.  Have you ever thought of writing a memoir of your life?  Well, Jewell decided to quilt it.  Her sense of humor takes you from her ranch life to town wife, on this quilt. To learn more about the life of Jewell Wolk the Storyquilter, put on the coffee pot and pass the homemade fudge.
