I think by this point the band was already together working on material for an upcoming coffee house (generally popular covers of the era - Super Freak, Jessie's Girl, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, etc.). With the exception of one member, all of us were MC students: Julie Humpert (guitar), Dave Denshaw (drums), Kevin Crothers (bass, vocal), Lisa Yacks* (sax, flute), Mark Beyer** (cowbell, vocal), Danny Cartilidge (guitar, vocal) [Danny wasn't an MC student, but he was the son of a faculty member - shout out to Dr Cartlidge!]. Mark drifted out of the band after this performance.
The MC coffee houses moved around campus a bit. The first one I played (with a band doing Fleetwood Mac covers) was in the dining hall, while a later one was in the old Alumni Gym/barn. The two represented here today took place in the spacious (and reflectively glass and brick-enclosed) confines of the Lloyd dorm first floor lobby.
The family will receive friends at Edmaiston-Mosley Funeral Home from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.
Jewel was born March 31, 1960, in Takoma Park, Maryland, daughter of Dolores (Walsh) Quinton of South Fulton and the late Eugene Brown "Jack" Quinton. Rev. Quinton was a graduate of Maryville College in Maryville, Tennessee. She was a recording artist who published her own CD "One True God" and was often called upon to share her gift of music for worship at countless gatherings, churches, and conferences.
Jewel served under and was prayerfully supported by The Missionary Church International. Although her ministry and life was well traveled and far reaching for the past several years, she has lived and served in Oklahoma. In her early years among the Native American families, she was taken as a daughter by the late John and Marlene Haumpy. This is considered an honor among Native Americans. In the same manor, Jewel developed many friendships which led her to take Jason Stick as a brother. Sue Oyebi took her as a daughter. She was well known throughout the area for service and music. She was a blessing to all she met and will be remembered for her servant's heart.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by two sisters, Laura Quinton of Orlando, Florida and Lisa Morgan and her husband Joseph of Dresden three brothers, the Rev. John Quinton and his wife Gail of Dresden, Kenneth Quinton and his wife Lana of Sturgis, Kentucky and Bill Quinton and his wife Heather of Union City; and several nieces and nephews Nicholas Quinton, Brock Quinton, Katie Quinton, Sarah Quinton, Luke Quinton, Noah Quinton, Magan Wills, Alayna Owens, Joe Werner, Dillon Quinton, Levi Owens and Myra Morgan.
Her many children like Jewel herself belong to others. She loved them nurtured them and influenced them in a Godly way that will be known for generations. Matthew 19:14
