Jacqueline Kay Moore
January 22, 1959 – May 15, 2018
- Jacqueline "Jackie" Kay Moore, of 1845 Powdersville Road, went home to be with the Lord and her Momma, Mona Louise Johnston Moore, on May 15, 2018. Jackie is survived by her father, 1SG (RET) Lee R. Moore; her sister, Terry (David) Spearman; her nieces, Heather (Austin) Knapik and Jennifer (Chad) Lee; her nephew, Christopher Spearman; her great niece, Emalee Moore; and her great nephews, Cal and Cannon Lee.
Jackie was born in Fort Lewis, Washington, on January 22, 1959, and moved all around the United States and to Germany while her father was in the US Army. She graduated from Easley High School in 1977, and worked as assistant manager at Friedman's Jewelers much of her adult life until health issues forced her to stop in 2008. Due to her outgoing personality and generous spirit, Jackie was always loved by her coworkers and customers.
Jackie and her sister, Terry, relied on one another as the Army Brats moved frequently and friendships were short lived. Because of this, Jackie considered Terry's children her "babies." Growing up, Heather, Jennifer, and Christopher had a playful, silly "Auntie Jah-ckie" to cut up with, then once the next generation was born, Jackie adored her great niece and great nephews, and spoiled them ridiculously. We will always remember Jackie as the wise-cracking, fun-loving, field trip chaperoning, nickname-calling life of the party that always had a surprise for the kids and a story for the adults. She was loved by her many cousins, aunts, and uncles for her funny ways and endearing spirit.
Jackie was cared for by an incredible group of skilled professionals at Mountain Home Health & Rehab in Hendersonville, NC, over the past 9 months. These caregivers loved Jackie like she was their family, and she loved them. Even more special was her relationship with her roommate, Mrs. Sandra Ballenger. Jackie's family deeply appreciate the care from the staff at Mountain Home and the friendship of Mrs. Ballenger. Words cannot express what they did for our Jackie. The family will be receiving friends on Friday, May 18, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and the funeral will be Saturday, May 19, at 3:30pm, at Dillard Funeral Home, followed by graveside services at the adjacent Hillcrest Memorial Park, in Pickens, SC.
