Ms Jackie was a beautiful soul. She was Yvonne’s piano teacher and was always so kind and full of encouragement. It’s not goodbye, but see you later. You will be missed.

Enjoyed visiting Jackie at their home in Leesburg Georgia. Always very kind to me and my family. Didn't get to visit as often as I wanted too but when we got together it was always a wonderful time. Family is everything! GOD BLESS JACKIE!

Jackie was a very gracious lady, a wonderful teacher, and my precious sister in Christ. I always enjoyed stopping by her piano studio before our students would come and just talking about teaching, life, and , of course, how good God is to us! I miss her so much, but I know that I will see her again, in the presence of our amazing Savior! Love and prayers to Misty and the family... I know what you are going through. Just keep her memory alive by talking about the special times you had with her!

When Jackie & I were young we spent some time in the summers in Shellman, Ga. visiting our Uncle James & Aunt Wilma Bethea, as well as our Grandmother Bethea. One of the last times we were there together we were almost grown. Jackie was dating her future husband & she set me up with a cousin of hers on her mother's side so that we could double date. Her cousin was a nice young man who had started college, & I was about to start at Auburn, so we had that in common. We had a fun evening. We wound up in nearby Dawson, Ga. at a Dairy Queen having ice cream. It so happened that there was a cemetary across the highway & we decided to drive over there & walk around. It wasn't really eventful, just a fun memory that I enjoy thinking back on.

We were blessed to be next door neighbors while living in Georgia and the Duncan’s quickly became like family to us. Jackie was everything you could hope for in a friend and neighbor. She was talented, generous, kind and fun loving. We had moved away but kept in touch and when we told her we were moving back to the area, she and her friend volunteered to scout out areas for us to move to. The ladies had more fun looking for us a home than we had moving but it was great moving back to our adopted family. We shared each other’s joys and sorrows just like family.
Jackie was a beautiful soul and a sweet, sweet lady we will miss terribly. Debby & Dave Hallman

Jackie had a lovely smile. We used to get with her at family gatherings and she always loved to hear our news. She will be missed for sure and our prayers go to the family x

Jackie was my first cousin. She was really a part of my life when she and her daughter Misty lived in Shellman, GA. I babysat Misty when needed. She was a wonderful mother and cousin. I remember Jackie with a smile on her face and love in her heart for family and friends. I will miss her, but I know she will be welcomed in heaven by her parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She and my mom will probably be playing the piano which they both loved so much. She was a lovely lady.

Jackie was a beautiful lady, and the thing I appreciate so much was her kindness. She was always smiling and never missed the chance to ask about my boys. She never seemed to be in a rush, and was friendly to everyone. Of course, I love her daughter Misty, too, who I consider one of my closest friends in our church family! Jackie will be missed, but we know where she is...and she is the lucky one right now! ❤️

My memories of my aunt Jackie is her gentleness and sweet Spirit she always had a smile and a hug to give. I still have a blue oval cameo jewelry box she and uncle Doug had given me for a graduation present. While we were in the military we went to visit her and Doug they were both so welcoming and loving .
I remember as kids all of the Duncan family getting together for holidays and I always knew I had the best Aunts ever. Till we meet again aunt Jackie you will never be forgotten.

I first met Jackie when I worked with Misty in the library! She was kind, funny and a great worker. We got along perfectly. I loved working with her and was sad when I retired to not see her as frequently as we had. But she came at least once to visit me in Melbourne with her daughter Misty. We had a great time. I loved her like a big sister! She will be missed greatly. Love you Jackie and one day we will be together again!♥️♥️♥️ Gisela
