Completed arrangements are being announced for the Rev. Julia Lynn “Jewel” Quinton, 51, of Lawton, Okla., who died suddenly Sept. 21, 2011, while visiting friends in Knoxville. She was the daughter of Dolores Quinton of South Fulton.
Services will be conducted 10 a.m. Wednesday at Edmaiston-Mosley Funeral Home in Union City. Burial will follow in Terrace Hill Cemetery in Troy.
The family will receive friends at the funeral home 5-8 p.m. Tuesday.
The family requests that donations be made to The Mission Church International for her neediest children.
She was born March 31, 1960, in Takoma Park, Md., daughter of Dolores (Walsh) Quinton and the late Eugene Brown “Jack” Quinton. She was a graduate of Maryville College and was a recording artist who produced her own CD, “One True God.” She was often called upon to share her gift of music for worship at countless gatherings, churches and conferences.
She served under and was prayerfully supported by The Missionary Church International. Although her ministry and life were well-traveled and far-reaching for the past several years, she has lived and served in Oklahoma. In her early years among the Native American families, she was taken as a daughter by the late John and Marlene Haumpy. This is considered an honor among Native Americans. In the same manner, Jewel developed many friendships which led her to take Jason Stick as a brother. Sue Oyebi took her as a daughter. She was well-known throughout the area for service and music. She was a blessing to all she met and will be remembered for her servant’s heart.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by two sisters and her brother-in-law, Laura Quinton of Orlando, Fla., and Lisa and Joseph Morgan of Dresden; three brothers and sisters-in-law, the Rev. John and Gail Quinton of Dresden, Kenneth and Lana Quinton of Sturgis, Ky., and Bill and Heather Quinton of Union City; and several nieces and nephews, Nicholas Quinton, Brock Quinton, Katie Quinton, Sarah Quinton, Luke Quinton, Noah Quinton, Magan Wills, Alayna Owens, Joe Werner, Dillon Quinton, Levi Owens and Myra Morgan.
Her many children, like Jewel herself, belong to others. She loved them, nurtured them and influenced them in a Godly way that will be known for generations. Matthew 19:14
