Jacqueline was a friend to all who knew her, and she enjoyed being a service to others in her community. She had a servant’s heart and loved to shop for those who didn’t drive.

Her children have always felt the joy of being raised in a Christian home and are passing on that legacy of love and knowledge to their own children.

She was known as an accomplished vocalist and her voice was an Instrument used for the good of the Lord. She was a devoted servant and was dutiful to the house of the Lord.

She loved the outdoors and sitting in her swing doing cross word puzzles. She was also an avid bird watcher.

Jacqueline had quite a sense of humor and a sharp mind. All her children remember her fondly and the meals she prepared with a song and love in her heart. Biscuits and gravy were a staple, and she was master and was bested by no one in the art of making bread.

She had a ready, beautiful smile and was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

She is and will always be missed.
