Jewel's was born in Chicago, Illinois and was the only child of Alvin Iverson and Ruth McClure Iverson. As a young child, she vacationed in Florida and grew fond of the sunshine state. At the age of 13, her family moved permanently to the beautiful state of Florida. In 1961, Jewel’s was married to Eugene Stowell in Orlando, Florida.

Jewel’s graduated from Orlando High School on June 8, 1951 in Orlando, Florida.

After graduating from college, she relocated to Philadelphia and worked as a pediatric nurse where she gained passion for children.

As a competent professional, she quickly rose through the nursing ranks being promoted from a Staff Nurse to Patient Care Coordinator. Jewel’s was a dedicated member of the Nursing Association for over 35 years and retired in 1994.

Throughout her life, Jewel’s supported many charitable organizations to include Alley Cat Allies, The Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy, Second Harvest Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity and The American Disabled Veteran's Association. Her long-time generosity to these organizations will never be forgotten.
