Jackie, 88, passed away April 8, 2018. She was born in Jackson County, Florida, to George and Lois Beauchamp Parish. She graduated from Pensacola High School and Florida State University (FSU).

She loved to read, travel, play bridge, spend time with her church family, attend and watch FSU sports, and especially enjoyed spending time with her great grandchildren.

My thoughts and prayers are with Jackie's children and family. Jackie has always been a joy to be around. She was my math teach in high school and she was my cousin thru
marriage. I will never forget that she put flowers in the church in honor of my father
when he pasted away. She had a heart of gold and she will be dearly missed. The good Lord gained another angel. Much love to all, Kimberly Robinson (Miller)

Cindy, Becky and Ben, I always depended on Mama to keep me in touch with my Florida family since moving away. With her gone, I made the effort myself to connect with family again. Because of that, Tony and I have good memories of long conversations with Aunt Jackie. Not only did we talk about family but also politics, local governments, schools, sports, writers, and many other topics. It was such a pleasure to get to know Aunt Jackie on an adult level. She will always be the perfect teacher in my mind-- forever learning and forever sharing that knowledge. We have you all in our hearts and prayers as you enter the next stage of this life.

Jackie, my 1st cousin, was a wonderful woman. Alhough I haven't seen her in recent years, I'll never forget how much she loved family. Her presence in our lives was a truly gift from God. God, family first always.
Although I wasn't able to see her after the stroke, I pray she knew how much we all loved her. I feel very honored to have had her in my family.
Rest well, my cousin, rest well in the arms of Jesus and sweet Bill. I'll never forget you. ♡♡

The Reynolds family were always fabulous party hosts. Pool table, pinball machines and at Christmas you could always see the biggest icicle covered Christmas tree! New Year's Eve parties were the best. Your Mom always had the best food/ deserts. Benny, sisters - we charish your family memories and always remembered to holler" coming in" when you came to visit thru the back gate- had to let your Dad know to put his swimsuit on LOL. Jackie is now reunited with her loved ones in heaven. Glory to God!! We love y'all, Jimmy and Jani Brittain - Part of "The Rebel family!"
