She was a wonderful mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She loved spending time shopping and traveling. Jackie dedicated her life to the Lord. She allowed God's light to shine through her for the world to see. Her core principles were to: treat others how she wanted to be treated, turn the other cheek, to love her fellowman/woman.
