Jackie was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt and sister. Jackie loved spending time with her grandkids and loved being a "Gran".

She was quite the talker, loved laughing, a good joke, and never met a stranger! She loved playing Wahoo with Mack, friends, and family. She had a love for makeup, bright lipstick, and jewelry. She was never seen without a Sonic Diet Dr. Pepper in hand. Christmas was her favorite time of year, and she started planning and buying gifts in August. Jackie was one of a kind and will never be forgotten. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.
