Jackie was my cousin but we didn't see each other very often. She was at my wedding when she was about eleven or twelve. I was in the Navy then and wore my uniform and asked her to dance. She was pretty excited and remembered that event. Whenever we did see each other she would comment on the dance. It's good for me to know that that simple thing was memorable.
Jackie and I had many fun hours in her play house and the barn. Our Mothers would be having coffee and it was always fun to go get eggs from Florence and play with Jackie.. So sorry for your loss..She had such a kind heart and a fun imagination. With sympathy and prayers. Marsha Carpenter Crouthamel
So sorry to hear this. She was one of the good ones!
Jackie is the closest thing I ever had to a sister! In our younger years we shared many memories(most of which are just between us). I will miss her until one day she'll be waiting for me and we can reminisce!! LOVE YOU JAKE!!!💖
I am so sorry for your loss. I work at Ziegler and always enjoyed seeing Jackie at coordinator meetings and chatting with her on the phone. Thoughts and prayers to all during this time.
Eddie & Eric, we’re so sorry for your loss. Jackie is in God’s arms & at peace. We’ll never forget Jackie’s laugh, love of animals, & her green thumb. She’ll be missed.
