She devoted her life to the well-being of her husband and children, staying at home to create a loving and nurturing environment.

She was a kind and loving person, a natural-born mother, and inseparable wife.
Jackie worked on the family farm. She also provided secretarial support as a civilian to the US Air Force, Borden’s Dairy, and her church. She was a long and faithful member of St. John’s United Church of Christ, Boonville.
