So Sorry for your loss. I hadn't talked to Jacky in many years but will always remember her laugh and smile.

We are so sorry for your loss.  We remember you, Beulah, with your four precious girls in church every Sunday.  All of you were always smiling and happy.

Our thoughts are with your family and prayers for God's comfort.  Lean into Him and feel his warm embrace as you journey through this time of loss. We have fond memories of Jacky; Curtis as a young boy going to the Bliss home and the "Big Blue Barn", Margie when Jacky spent many hours with her pal, Teenie.  It always does a mother's heart "good" to have her children spending time with great friends.  And Hedy had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Israel with Jacky and also to sing in her wedding.  She had such a wonderful sense of humor and gentleness.  Though the miles and time have made our lives separate, it was great in recent months to reconnect via social media and see great photos of Jacky and her beloved family.  Love from Idaho.

We had such fun as kids & i am so grateful for the times we had together. They were the greatest part of my chidhood. When we were together as adults, Jacky was always in touch with that silly side , while being a thoughtful, loving, giving person always. I am so blessed to have had such a beautiful person for my cousin. My heart, my love, & my prayers to all of the family.

I have signed this once but I want to share why Jacky means so much to me. While at WACC Jacky and I talked she answered many questions for me. As a result I was lead to make what I feel is the most important decision in my life.  My dear friend led me to accept Jesus as my personal savior. No one could have done more for me! Till we meet again!

My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to her family and friends.  I was fortunate to have known Jackie for most of her adult life. I was honored when she would come visit  me on a regular basis. We would talk for the longest time about collecting, the newest find and her plans for her next hunt.  She would get a twinkle in her eyes and a smile on her face telling me about her most recent find. She knew what I liked and would always be on the lookout for me.  Many a time she would bring me a treasure that I will have to forever remind me of her. She was a compassionate, loving, caring, giving individual with love for her family and friends.  I, along with everyone else who knew her, will mss her and the times she shared with all. She has left a void physically but will always remain in the heart and mind eternally. RIP my friend !

Jacky was one of the most wonderful people I ever new, she was a great neighbor and very loving mother.  I remember how hard she worked to go to school and raise three daughters.  She was like a mom to all of us, and I know I will never forget her.
