September 5, 1924 April 29, 2019
Jewell Louise Mentzer passed away April 29, 2019 surrounded by her children. She was born on Fudge's Creek in West Virginia on September 5, 1924 to Ellen and James Browning.
She moved to Detroit, Michigan in her early teens where she met her husband, Arnold Duane Mentzer. They were married October 28, 1943.
The automobile business took them to Southern California, Houston TX, San Antonio TX and Colorado Springs, CO. Jewell and Duane opened the Porsche Audi dealership in Colorado Springs in 1970.
After retirement, Duane and Jewell returned to the San Diego area and rejoined their group of lifelong friends. She cherished all her friends and appreciated all their wonderful times together.
Jewell was the matriarch of her family which gathered frequently around her for holidays and family celebrations. She was a woman of faith and became close friends with the members of her church in the El Cajon community.
She was a force in life and will be remembered with love.
Jewell is survived by her three children Dianne Porinsh (Peter), Joanne Pesce (Jerry), and Garry Mentzer (Mary). A special place in her heart was filled with her 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Duane, as well as her sister Minoka Blume. Our family thanks all the wonderful people who surrounded Jewell with warmth and love during the last years of her life.
We are honoring her with a Memorial Service on Monday, May 20th at 10:00 am at Greenwood Mortuary. Greenwood Memorial Park & Mortuary 4300 Imperial Avenue San Diego, California 92113 (619) 264-3131
