I will definitely miss her great hugs and kind words. Prayers for peace for her family and friends. Love you Granny Jackie !

  11. Diane Storey says:

    Jackie meant the world to our family. She was my husband’s right hand for so many years at Critter Gitter, and we considered her the glue that held the business together when we lost him. She was a dear friend and mentor to both of us, and loved by our whole family. So many special memories of her loving and serving us and everyone. She taught me so much. It hurts terribly to not have her here but I know she is delighted to be with her Lord at last.

  12. Cathy Vann says:

    My love and prayers go out to the family of this precious saint of God. Jackie was hands down the most humble, sweet, loving person and a true prayer warrior. She will be missed by young and old alike.

  13. Lynda Isbell says:

    I regret that I couldn’t spend more time with my sweet friend over the last few years due to sickness but I treasure the many memories I have of time spent with her. It was our happy privilege to serve as her pastor for several years. No better church member anywhere. Jackie was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever known and I look forward to a day where we’ll never grow old or sick and no more parting ever. Till then, we must keep travelling toward that marvelous glad reunion day. I love you, my friend.

    I am so sorry for the passing of MS. Jackie my heart goes out to Sam, Beth, Debbie and all the family. She was the most sweetest, kind and Godly woman I know. I have some many great memories starting from Critter Gitter where her and Richard brought me to the Lord. And the friendship this we had for so many years. My heart will have a void but I know Ms. Jackie is in heaven now with her Lord and Savior, until we meet again. I will love you always ❤
