Jewel Trivett Nunley was called to heaven May 7, 2022. She was born to Vana McGuire Trivett and John Trivett in Beech Mountain, N.C.
Jewel married her school sweetheart, William R. Nunley “Bill” in 1955. She began her career while raising her family by selling encyclopedias and taking interior design courses. Her interest in interior design sparked her entrepreneurial spirit and she, along with her husband Bill, parlayed their combined talents into a successful furniture and appliance business that served the community for many years.
Jewel was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bill; and son, Anthony “Tony.” She was also predeceased by her brothers, Pat, Clarence and Vernon, and sisters, Wilma, Lenos and Georgia.
Those left to cherish her memory and light of her immense love include three daughters, Diana, Delilah and Deborah, and sons-in-law, Wayne Bartley and Ed Gorman; four grandchildren, Brooks, Stuart and wife Emily, Nicholas and Myranda. Beloved siblings, Judy Lynn (Johnny) and Clark Trivett (Judy); sisters-in-law, Mary Jane Hart, Nola Gay Trivett and Elizabeth Nunley; and brother-in-law, Jerry Baird, survive. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
Special thanks to Dr. Robert Walter and Dr. Ryan Hackett for their kindness, care and support through the years.
