She attended school in Amarillo and graduated from St. Mary’s Academy in 1962. Jackie married Michael Brown on September 25, 1963 in Amarillo. Shortly after they wed, Mike joined Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway which allowed them to frequently move around the country. Through all the moves, Jackie became a mother to Susan and Steven, and a homemaker. She worked various jobs and volunteered in the early years, but once in Houston settled in as an office manager for a food equipment company for many years to help put her children through college. Jackie was a kind and generous person who loved to laugh. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who adored her 3 grandsons, Addison Chappell, Clayton Brown, and Jacob Brown. Jackie enjoyed many things including family, friends, traveling, casinos, shopping, and crafting. She loved visiting and spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed traveling whether it was a good road trip or hopping on a cruise ship. You would not get much push back from her if the trip included a visit to a casino to give her a little time with the one-armed bandits! She was an avid lover of all things crafting from wood working and painting to sewing and quilting. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother (Ben Lumpkins), and niece (Virginia Pitts). Survivors include her husband, daughter, son and daughter-in-law (Tomarie Brown), and 3 grandsons. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to The Alzheimer's Association.

If I were asked to choose 10 people to be stranded on an island with, you would have definitely been one of them. Jackie, my mother’s good friend, my Uncle Mike’s life long companion, my favorite Aunt. I was privileged to have you as a small part of my. A small part but with a huge impact. You were always so kind to me, going back as far in my life as I can remember. It is rare when a child and an adult can laugh so easily with each but you brought that laughter to me. I always enjoyed our back and forth verbal sparring. I credit you with teaching me the art of sarcasm and how to get a laugh with it. You have left a great contribution to our world and we all will be poorer for your loss. For now, enjoy sitting on the porch where you are, with a cold drink and good company. Say hello to my Mom and Dad and wait patiently for the rest of us. All my love, Jeff.

I think about my grandmother every single day. She was my best friend and always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I have so many happy memories of her, especially when we would discover new books together. She filled my life with joy and love. I will always cherish her memory. May she rest in peace.

Jackie has been my friend for close to 50 years and I will never forget her even though we haven't lived close together for many years. She brought laughter, honesty, humor and friendship into my life and the lives of everyone who knew her. We had many good time over the years, especially through Santa Fe Railroad days. God speed dear friend. You will always be remembered with love.

Jackie Brown was a beautiful soul. She had a heart of gold and we will always miss her. She was a wonderful friend/family sweetheart. David and Kay were very happy to share holidays and lake time with Jackie and Mike as we shared the love of Addison, her first born grandson. We were great friends and for Kay, she taught her how to be a mom to Addison and was a huge support for our family. She is a huge blessing in our lives.

So many of my childhood memories are of Jackie, Susan and Steven. Her laugh is something that I will never and hope I never forget. She was my moms best friend. She was a light in every room. I am so gracious and proud that I had her in my life and that she was in ours. Love to you all! Rest In Peace.

Jackie was my grandmother-in-crime partner. I will miss her greatly.

She was always so kind and supportive of Tomarie. Being family was always so natural and comfortable.

We appreciated the opportunity to know Jackie.
