She was lovingly referred to as a “second mother” by many and was always willing to help others in need.  Jewels was a proud grandmother and treasured the time she spent with her grandchildren.  Jewels touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Jewels will be remembered by her daughters, Shanna Henson of Mount Carmel, Mary (Micah) North of Edmond, OK and Jennifer Seaton of Evansville, IN; grandchildren, Sadie (Aaron) Wilson, Avary Daum, Mataio Militoni, Aubree Carter, Leah and RJ North; and brother, Eric (Bobbie) Sparks of Austin, TX.  Jewels was preceded in death by her mother, Bobbie Sublett; and son, Greg Matthew Henson. A private Visitation and Funeral Service for Jewels will be held at Keepes Funeral Home for family and close friends with Pastor Mark Richison officiating. Keepes Funeral Home is serving the family with the arrangements.  To view Jewels’ tribute wall, purchase flowers and leave condolences for the Henson family, please visit
