Jewell "Sister" Pentz Woolsey

October 15, 1950 — February 5, 2024


Jewell Pentz Woolsey was reunited with her eternal companion, Scott on February 5, 2024 after a brief battle with cancer. She was born October 15, 1950 in Ogden, Utah to Charles Irwin Pentz and Jewel Violet Carpenter Pentz. She was the sixth of seventeen children. She was the first girl after five boys. One of her brothers was unable to pronounce her name so they called her “Sister” which family members still call her today. She was a caretaker to her younger siblings. She was always kind and helpful and never became angry with them. She would take them places and always keep them safe. She even took them along on dates with her in her teenage years.

 Jewell married Scott Charles Woolsey on November 2, 1968. They were later sealed for eternity in the Ogden Utah temple. Her desire in life was to have a large family. Together her and Scott raised 10 children (five boys and five girls) Her legacy lives on and her dream of many children continues to grow with 47 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren and counting. When asked how many children she had, she would say, “not enough.”

 Jewell was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was dedicated to her family and put their needs before her own. Her sole purpose was to raise righteous, Christ like children. She led by example through hard work, dedication, and service. She taught her children that life isn’t about “things” it’s more about who you are, how you treat others, working hard, the importance of honesty and commitment to our Savior, Jesus Christ. In her final moments she reminded her children and grandchildren to continue to live righteously by keeping close to our savior and relying on him for guidance through prayer and faith. 

 Jewell knew one income would never be enough for her large family and she never expected Scott to do all the providing himself. While her most important work was that of being a mother she also contributed financially by working various jobs. She enjoyed being a tax preparer for family and friends for several years. She was a women of all trades and no task was too large. She had special talents and skills to create, and uniquely design her home to accommodate her growing family. She was often found building, rearranging, or organizing. There was always a project to be completed whether it was in her home, yard, or shop. She was her husbands right hand women who stood by his side assisting with mechanical repairs, tire services, and farm work.

 She had a special gift of recognizing the needs of others and often showed up to lend a hand, or deliver helpful items to ease burdens. She never missed a birthday and it was important for her to pay special visits–always delivering thoughtful gifts to each child and grandchild. She traveled near and far to support her grandchildren’s events. 

 Jewell is survived by her greatest blessings, her ten children: Tracy (Casa) Woolsey, Tara (Rob) Lewis, Levi (Kellie) Woolsey, Cissy (Mike) Toone, Jade (Stacey) Woolsey, Jesse (Cari) Woolsey, Daisy (Tony) Williams, Ivy (Daniel) Portillo, Sadie (Joseph) Reyna, Sage (Jenna) Woolsey, her 46 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren, her brothers: Randy (Alona) Pentz, Steve (Vicki) Pentz, Byron (Vivian) Pentz, Larry Pentz, Joe (LuAnn) Pentz, Zane (Stacie) Pentz, Shane (Jill) Pentz, Lane (Robyn) Pentz, her sisters, Opal Pentz, Topaz (Brad) Baker.
