Jewel Vernella Gilcrease | Obituary

On Friday, June 12, 2020 Jewel

Vernella Gilcrease passed away

peacefully at the age of 85

after a brief stay at the Auburn

Hospital. Jewel was the mother

of three children, Dennis, Linda

& Denise. However, in her later

years many considered her as

their own grandmother. She was

a woman far ahead of her time

balancing a career at Boeing,

raising a family, and always

contributing endless hours to

Community Service. She was kind, and caring and always

deeply concerned for her family, friends, and neighbors.

She is survived by her two daughters, Linda Hill and Denise

Gilcrease, five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

A viewing will take place from 1:00-5:00 pm on July 7,

2020 at Price-Helton Funeral Home. Graveside service

will take place on July 8, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Mountain

View Cemetery, in Auburn, Washington. Please

condolences. Arrangements by Price-Helton

Funeral Home, 253-833-1165.
