Jackie was a very dedicated volunteer in the gift shop at Lynchburg General Hospital. Always giving her time to others in many ways. A friend to many including my Mom, Jackie had a sense of humor and kept us laughing. Jackie never hesitated to tell it like it was either. Jackie will be missed by many but leaves many wonderful memories with us all. Love you Jackie and she would say love you Sugar.
