Bruce & I first met Jackie at a resort on Isla Mujeres MX. The second time was by chance at the same resort two years later. She was on "spring break" with Kohlten & Brent! Brent fondly called her Yackie Jackie. What a fun time we shares with her! She had an irresistible & infectious personality. Many regrets we didn't get up to White Lake to check out Crab n' Jacks. This friendship is always & forever. May God bless you all in this time of sorrow. We will miss her. Bruce & Nancy Culver Prairie du Sac

I had the wonderful opportunity to spend this last Christmas with Jackie and her family. From the very beginning, she was extremely sweet and kind to me. Not only did I get to try her amazing sweets and dishes, but I also got to hear her stories about cooking with her nephew and her hilarious remarks during our aggressive Uno game. Jackie had a strong presence, and I would often find myself laughing at her witty jokes. I'm really glad to have met her and I will always remember just how kind she was to me. She is so dearly loved by her family. I see it in the way they laughed together, teased each other, and even in the way they shared meals together. What a blessed life she had. To the remaining family, I pray that comfort will be upon you. We have lost a beautiful soul, but she will always be dearly remembered. I'm sending you all my love, Jackie
