VICTORIA - Jewell Deane Britton, 91, of Victoria, passed away on Sunday, October 27, 2013. She was born on December 16, 1921, in Desdemona, TX to the late George Erwin Rouse and Esther Russ Russell Rouse.
She was a loving wife for 60 years and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother all of her adult life. She was an avid bowler, gardener and bridge player.
