In remembrance, the Jewell family is accepting donations for a seat in Teri’s honor at the Ashland-Greenwood Community Performing Arts Center.
Teresa Lynn Jewell passed away on January 20, 2024, surrounded by her family at her home in Lincoln, NE. Teri was born January 10, 1961 in Omaha, Nebraska to Orval (Pork) and Judy Robbins, of Louisville, Nebraska. Her family moved to Ashland, Nebraska in 1975 where she spent most of her life. She married her high school sweetheart Gerald Jewell. They spent 38 years together, and they had two wonderful children. Teri worked at SilverStone Group and had many happy memories of her 23 years of employment there.
Teri’s proudest accomplishments were her children, Nikki and Nicholas. She felt blessed to have children with varied interests, one in sports and one in the arts. She was thrilled she got to experience and support them through all these different facets of school and competition. Some of her favorite memories with her family were from their many trips together for summer softball traveling between Canada, Colorado, South Dakota, Kansas City, and many more.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. For Teri, those were her best friend Cindy and dear friends Deb, Robin, and Marie. Teri cherished their crazy, fun times together.
Teri is preceded in death by her father, Orval Robbins; her infant brother Alan, her grandparents Otto and Elvira Heil, Orville and Eyrene Robbins.
She is survived by her mother Judy Robbins; her former husband Gerald Jewell; their children Nikki Jewell and Nicholas (Megan) Jewell; her brother Mike (Julie) Robbins, and their children Alec Robbins, Nick (Kelsie) Hoover, Mandi Casey, Nate Hoover; her Uncle Larry Robbins, her Aunts Bev Heil and Sandy Crouse, as well as many cousins and friends.
