Jewel Mable Pridgen of Samson, Alabama passed away on July 21, 2018 at the age of 100. Born on February 4, 1918 in Geneva County, Alabama, she experienced a Christ-centered life doing what she valued most – caring for her family and extending hospitality to everyone she knew.

She is survived by four sons: Dwight Pridgen (Deborah) of Montgomery, Alabama; Douglas Pridgen (Cathy) of Mobile, Alabama; Bobby Pridgen (Mary Nell) of Sneads, Florida; and Billy Pridgen (Desiree) of Samson, Alabama. Also, she leaves her legacy of doing good to her grandchildren who were special in her life: one granddaughter, Amy Pridgen Waller, and six grandsons: Craig Pridgen, Brent Pridgen, Joshua Pridgen, Scott Pridgen, Stephen Pridgen, and Chris Pridgen; and five great grandchildren: Bryar Pridgen, Brooklyn Pridgen ,Collin Pridgen, Luchian Pridgen, and Nathaniel Pridgen.
Being a follower of Jesus Christ whose values guided every step of her life, she firmly believed that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord.
