To everything there is a season, and a time under the heaven.
Annie Jewel was born on November 24, 1932, in Prescott, Arkansas to Huey and Grace Hudson.
She dedicated her life to Christ at an early age and united with the Church of God in Christ under the leadership of the late Elder Johnny S. Gilmore. She was a 1951 graduate of McRae High in Prescott, Arkansas. After graduating she moved to Omaha, Nebraska and worked for a number of years.
Upon returning to Arkansas, she met and married Alex Gossett and moved to Camden. She united with St. James Baptist Church, under the leadership of the Late Rev. Walter Morris. She loved caring and sharing her home with many foster children. Annie Jewel is the last of Pastor Dawn’s Golden Girls.
She was employed at Baldwin Factory and later for R.N. Reynold’s family.
Annie’s brother and stepfather preceded her in death.
She leaves to cherish her memory: an adoptive son, Martin; cousins, Otis Walker (Velma Jean), Bobby Joe Falk of Omaha, Nebraska. She also leaves several nieces including, Janie Brown; nephews and a number of foster sons and daughters that include, Terra Nicole Lewis and Shirley Alexander.
We celebrate Annie’s farewell, knowing that she is in the God’s loving care.
