Ines Jewell Stover, 75, of Sunbury died Tuesday evening (July 3, 2012) at Riverside Hospital in Columbus.
She was born on May 15, 1937, in Blains Trace, Ky., to the late Wesley and Della (Triplett) Caldwell. She was a charter member of the Sunbury Eagles Auxiliary. She had lived in the Galena/Sunbury area since 1956 coming from Kentucky. Jewell loved her family, calling her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren “her babies.” Jewell loved to go out to eat with family and friends. Any place that said “Eat” above the door was fair game to try. She also enjoyed shopping with her children and their friends when the girls were younger.
She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Everett Wilson Stover and they were married July 26, 1958, in Galena; son, Gregory Wilson Stover of Sunbury; daughters, Della Cupps and Kim Longshore both of Sunbury; seven grandchildren, Bill (Holly), Chad (Raejean), Skyler, Heather (Matt), Valerie (Aaron), Amy (Johnathon) and April (Jaime); 15 great-grandchildren; brothers, Fred Caldwell of West Virginia and Cliff (Ruth) Caldwell of Lodi; and sisters, Juanita (Don) Fields of Kentucky, Mable Caldwell of Kentucky and Patty Sue Mackley of Sunbury.
She was preceded in death by a brother, Cecil; sisters, Opal Pennington, Gladys Blevins and Beatrice Wells; and son-in-law, Dave Cupps.
Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday with an Eagles service at 7:45 p.m. at the DeVore-Snyder Funeral home, Ohio 3 at 61, Sunbury, where services will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday with the Rev. JR Smith officiating. Interment will follow in the Galena Cemetery.
