To the family: Jackie was a great lady and a pleasant person to talk with. Ginny (my wife) and I knew her when Noel was living and they were both active in the Easter Star in the Temple-Belton area. Jackie was not able to attend any OES meetings for the last 5 plus years so we would go visit her 2-3 times per year...and generally in December. She will be missed.
