Jewellene Holley Register went to be with her Savior on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
Born on May 24, 1926, she had lived in Jackson County for most of her life. After spending nine years in Dothan, Alabama, residing at Wesley Manor, she returned to Florida this past Christmas to reside at Panama City Health and Rehabilitation on so she could be closer to her family. Mrs. Register taught school briefly in Alford at a young age during World War II. She also worked in the office of the family’s business, Register Meat Company in Cottondale, Florida. She then retired after 25 years of employment with Gilbert Peanut Mill in Cottondale. A faithful member of First Baptist Church of Cottondale for many years, she served as Church Clerk for most of her active years there. Known for her friendly manner, her caring nature, and her constant concern for others in the community, she was a good friend to many.

Survivors include a daughter, Judy Peterson and her husband, Karl of Panama City Beach, Florida; two sons, Barney Register and wife, Sandra, of Nicholas, California, and Terry Register and wife, Susie, of Utah. She also leaves behind beloved grandsons, Joshua David Morris and wife, Channah, of Sugar Hill, Georgia, and Dylan Register of Norman, Oklahoma, as well as beloved granddaughters, Alanna Shankles, and husband, Steve of Birmingham, Alabama, and Jessie Vanchieri of Discovery Bay, California. Other survivors include a special sister-in-Law, Eleanor Holley of Jacksonville, Florida, and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
