  1. Michelle and Susie, I am so sorry for your loss. The Burncoate lunches will never be the same. May she now rest in peace

  2. Jackie has been a long time friend, and our keno club friend forever, she will be greatly missed.
    My sympathy to all of the family.

  3. We will miss her at our monthly keno gathering, her hearty laugh as she enters the vestibule at St Francis to attend the 4pm Mass on Saturday, her great cooking and of course, the Burncoate Bunch lunches. We are so sorry Michelle and Susie. Much love!

  4. Michelle & Susie, So sorry for your loss! So many Burncoate memories! Miss those childhood days when u lived on Burncoate! The Haights.

  5. So sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Jackie. You and Larry were great neighbors during our time in Columbia. Mike and Tina Carroll

  6. I remember when we moved to Burncoate in 1977. Larry & Jackie were our neighbors and best friends. We went trout fishing, float trips, vacations in Destin, street dances and softball with the Burncoate Bunch. Those were the days my friend.
    We will miss you our friend and neighbor!

  7. Jackie, i first met Jackie when her husband (Larry) became catholic RCIA) days…. He would bring the best desserts from her

    Later I stumbled into her again as SFA thru the Mcinnis crowd
    Tim & Kathy ….. BUT
    My Fondest memory of her was at Walgreens when we were waiting for our scripts – we had the crowd laughing I’M SURE
    She’s entertaining the crowd up in Heaven!!!! R.I.P. w/Larry

  8. I will miss Jackie at any and all the St. Francis of Assisi activities. Her laughter and kindness were contagious. She was always there and up for a good time at fish fries, Alpha group, and Advent by Candlelight. Going into 4pm Mass and being able to give her Holy Communion in the back of church will not be the same! I will always remember going to get sweet potatoes with her for me and Fr. Yates. She turned a mundane task in to a hoot and holler adventure as we found out way to the farm. I am sure she is in heaven laughing and meeting old and new friends.

  9. Jackie made her way into the hearts of St. Bernadette 50+ Club members some years ago. Her laugh was contagious. Her ability to spread humor, in spite of adversities was a gift. You will be missed.
