Mrs. Michael D. Werner

Jacqueline N. Werner, age 54, of Mishawaka, passed away early Saturday morning, January 15, 2005, in Memorial Hospital, South Bend.

Jackie was born February 10, 1950, in Mishawaka, where she grew up and graduated from Mishawaka High School in 1968. On June 26, 1971, she married her soul mate, love of her life, and best friend, Michael D. Werner. They made their home in Mishawaka, where they raised their two sons.

Jackie was most recently employed with Teacher's Credit Union. She worked for many years at K-Mart on McKinley, and prior to that she was employed with S.S. Kresge at Town and Country. Jackie was a member of the American Legion Unit #161 Auxiliary, and she also belonged to 8/40 Salon D`Petit. Jackie was an excellent seamstress and enjoyed making crafts and also flower and vegetable gardening. When her boys were growing up, she was very involved with their school and other activities. The center of Jackie's life was her family. In recent years, she dearly loved being a grandmother, and her grandchildren were the light of her life.

Jackie's surviving family includes her husband of 33 years, two sons, four grandchildren, her life-long special friend, Darlene Bennett, and many extended family members and friends.

Friends may gather and spend time with Jackie's family on Tuesday from 2 to 6 p.m. in Thallemer, Goethals & Wells Funeral Home, 503 W. Third Street, Mishawaka. A dinner for family and friends will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the American Legion Post #161, Mishawaka. Cremation has taken place. Instead of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be given to American Legion Unit #161 Auxiliary or the American Lung Association.

(The obituary above was published in the South Bend Tribune, on January 17, 2005. The obituary was written by Jackie's friend Darlene Lennox Bennett.)

Jackie was the daughter of Robert James SWONGER (1925-1980) and Betty Lou RANSBERGER (1924-1984). Jackie's maternal grandparents were Rosco H. and Verna RANSBERGER.
