Jewell Mae (Gladish) Barr age 92, passed away on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at her residence in Joplin, MO where she had resided for the past 28 years.

Jewell was born on September 20, 1922 to Silas and Dora (Shell) Gladish in Lutesville, Missouri. She married Harold E. Barr on April 16, 1955 in Hernando, Mississippi. They had two children, Jewell Lynne and Edward Harold “Eddie”.

She received a Bachelor’s degree in education from Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) in 1945 where she was a member of Kappa Delta Pi, Alpha Eta Chapter. Her skills in art provided her with opportunities to further her education with additional graduate level art classes at California State University in 1965.

Working mainly as an art and home economics teacher throughout her career, Jewell received many accolades for her success in teaching including teacher of the year at Serena High School in 1973. She was given the honor of drawing the seal for the Sheridan, Illinois centennial where she lived at the time. With a passion for art education, Jewell started the art departments at both Serena and Newark High School. She taught 7 years in Lutesville, Mo and retired after 17 years of teaching across the country.

She is survived by her husband, Harold Barr of Joplin and her daughter Jewell Bettasso, also of Joplin. She has four grandchildren; Joe, Amanda, Barney and Hannah. She also has one great grandchild Benjamin.

Jewell was preceded in death by her parents Silas and Dora Gladish, and her son Edward “Eddie” Barr.
