She is also survived by nine great-grandchildren: Ashlie, Taylor, Makayla, Kayce, Memphis, Wyatt, Annalee, Katelyn, and Walter., and one great-great-granddaughter, Amaryllis.
Jackie was devoted to her family and cherished the time she spent with them. She was very artistic and loved decorating her home, painting ceramics, arranging flowers, and restoring furniture were among her many talents. She had a loving and caring heart and loved caring for others. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out, and was a blessing to all who knew her. Her love will live on in our hearts and memories.
Jackie was baptized at Davis Chapel Baptist Church on April 14th, 1963, and was a member of East Hiram Baptist Church since March 12th, 2000, until she went on to her eternal home with Jesus.
