Jackie worked for the Daily Journal for 10+ years, Co-owner at former JKM Inc. in Nineveh, and retired from Franklin College.
She had many passions, one of which was quilting. She was able to make all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren their own quilt. She loved gardening and worked for Churches Country Greenhouse for years. Her house was always filled with life. She spent most of her days at either dance competitions, or sports games. Jackie always took pride of taking nothing and turning it into something amazing. Her grandchildren and family always came first. She was always the first person to welcome anyone with open arms.
Jackie's family is following her wishes to not have a service, however, there will be a Celebration of her life.
