Jacqueline "Jackie" Marie (Dean) Thompson

August 2, 1949February 11, 2020

Jackie Thompson passed away on February 11, 2020 surrounded by her family.

She was born to Phyllis and Dale Dean on August 2, 1949 and lived her entire life in Kansas City. Jackie was a graduate of Westport High School, Class of 1967 and the owner/operator of Encore Embroidery for 28 years.

She loved anything that involved being with family and insisted on getting everyone together as often as possible. She loved going to the camper and really looked forward to sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee taking in the peace. She loved taking road trips and traveling in their travel trailer but more than anything, she loved anything that had to do with her grandchildren, school plays/concerts, baseball games, dance recitals, graduations, and birthday parties, where she always had a front seat and was the loudest supporter.

Jackie is survived by her husband of 43 years, Cody; 3 children, Christopher Montgomery, Kelly (Alysia) Montgomery, and Alissa (Jeremy) Batliner; 2 stepsons, Brent and Troy Thompson; 8 grandchildren, Shelby, Dillon, Dominic, Kean, Justin, Cooper, Payton, and Presley; her brothers, Phil and John (Alleene) Dean; her nephew and nieces, Philip, Erica, and Lora; her great nieces, nephew, and many cousins; and her dog, Bella. She was a great friend with the biggest heart who is loved very much and will be missed greatly by all.

Attending Jackie’s Memorial brought so many emotions and memories. Seeing how many people were there was a profound tribute to the woman she was. Watching Chris, Kelly, Alissa and others speak was heartbreaking. As a friend of 30+ years, my words I was unable to say...If you are guilty (as I am) of saying “we need to get together “ but you don’t...Please do it!! Friends like Jackie don’t come along often enough and we need to cherish those friendships! I will miss her and I know I’m not alone. Prayers and God’s healing to her entire family. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

We are so sorry to hear of Jackie's passing. We always enjoyed our visits with her at the RV Park. She shared with us about lots of good memories she made with her family. We are praying for Cody and all of the family.

My mother Louise Baggett taught piano for many years in the Westport neighborhood. Jackie was always her favorite student, not just because of her ability as a pianist , but the joy and true enthusiasm she showed with music. That joy and kindness was always in my mother’s thoughts and conversations when she would talk about Jackie. Through the piano she showed us such an important aspect of who she was as a person. Joyful and kind.

We were friends since high school. We started visiting again when I moved to Omaha, NE in 1994. I would stop by for a visit on my way home from Kansas City and a few times over the years spent the night. I would always get her to play the piano (she was very good) and we would talk and laugh about our lives and sometimes old times. She had a wonderful laugh and I loved it when she would laugh a lot. She was a wonderful human being and I will cherish our fun times and memories always, So sorry to all the family for your loss. Donna Svaglic Kosloski
