Jackie was an exceptional country dancer, comfort food cook and avid bowler in her younger years. She loved dancing with her brothers, however her favorite dance partner was always her husband, Robert.

She loved every moment with her husband, children and grandchildren, and they loved her back with their whole hearts. She will be missed immeasurably.
