Obituary

Jewel Chambers Hackett, age 90, of Conway, AR died peacefully Saturday, December 28, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She was born October 29, 1929 to Enos and Linnie Gober Chambers in Monticello, AR. Jewel graduated from Drew Central High School where she was a star basketball player and completed nursing school in Greenville, MS. She was happily married for thirty three years to John T. Hackett until his death in 1981. Jewel worked for Chicot Memorial Hospital and Clinic for many years. She also worked on the farm and was known as the “best tractor driver around.” Jewel moved to Mayflower in 1995 and to Conway in 1998. Jewel was an avid fisherwoman and spent many hours on Lake Chicot and surrounding areas. She also played softball (third base) for many years and enjoyed league bowling. Although she had a very busy life, her Grandchildren always came first. She was a devout Christian and will be missed by all the lives she touched.
She is survived by three daughters, Judy Hackett Green (Bill) of Rogers, Linda Hackett Fairchild (Michael) of Conway and Donna Hackett Clifton (Norman) of Conway. She has six Grandchildren, Rhonda Glover Ridgway of Cabot, John “Tony” Fairchild (Roger) of Grass Valley, CA, Jeff Glover (Deja) of Fayetteville, Mickey Fairchild (Tammy) of Lonoke, Natalie Clifton Cates (Bradley) of Conway and Nathan Clifton of Ward.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jewel last July as we started listening to music together at StoneBridge. Donna helped create the list of songs - good ole country and gospel were her favorites. When Jewel and I were together, we usually got started with “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” or “Houndog” which always got her tapping her feet! We’d move on to wonderful gospel songs and sweet lullabies. Even though she didn’t use words to help me get to know her, I felt like I really did understand who she was. She loved being a mother/grandmother/great grandmother because she always had the biggest smile was when I would bring up her family. She had such a sweet, kind spirit. One day when I was there, a worker came over, gave her a hug, and said quietly in her ear, “I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but I can’t help it.” She really was a “Jewel” and I’m so honored to have had our time together. I will never forget her and will smile and feel her presence every time I Iisten to a song from her playlist. I have no doubt that she’s singing and dancing in Heaven and telling everyone about her family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
