Jackie and I were the same age and I remember her as a little girl, about age 6, going to the Mt. Pleasant Church near Lewistown, Ilinois. Her sister Frances was our Sunday School teacher in that small rural church. Although we drifted apart, I never have forgotten her as a sweet, loving child.

I had the pleasure of working with Jackie at SIU and saw her a few times in recent years. Jackie was a genuinely nice person. I remember how much she loved her family. I always enjoyed hearing her stories about Max, her kids and grandkids.
My sincere sympathy to the family for their loss.

So very sorry for your loss, I knew her from the other church in which she attended many years ago, we both sang in the choir and sang specials, she was such a good person to be around, she is with Jesus now, so always keep her close to you in your thoughts.
