Jackie worked as a bank teller for over 25 years. She was a past member of the Red Hats. Jackie had a special talent for embroidery, with Christmas sweatshirts being her favorite canvas.

Jackie is survived by her devoted husband, Paul; her loving son, Steve (Connie) Jennings; two cherished daughters, Dacra Couch and Lisa Chapman; two adored grandsons, Adam (Breanna) Chapman and Travis Chapman; and two great-grandsons, Dash Chapman and Tuff Chapman. She leaves behind three dear sisters, Freda Bales, Penny Shawgo, and Kathy Moore, as well as two brothers, John (Stephanie) Craft and Fred (Lora) Stienman. Jackie's loyal service dog, Ringo, was a constant companion, offering comfort and support. Additionally, she is survived by numerous nieces and nephews. 

Jackie was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Imogene, and her brothers, Roy File and David Molton.
