He was baptized at an early age at Mt. Moriah Church in Tylertown, MS after moving back home from Moss Point, MS. He dedicated his life to Christ at St. John Temple where he was a faithful member until his health begin to fail him.
Jewell Anders was united in holy matrimony to Lenoria Hart and to this union one daughter was born Ollie Marie Anders.
Jewell worked as a truck logger for many years before moving to Moss Point, MS. He also worked as a carpenter for many years before retiring. In his spare time he loved to hunt, fish, and he loved to eat wild game and also sharing what he caught. He also could beat anyone in dominoes with his eyes closed. Jewell would help family and friends with acts of kindness by bringing them to the doctor, the grocery store, fishing or just getting them out the house to ride them around. He was a man of few words but always had a joke to make you laugh.
