    Jackie's warm heart and helpful smile will always be remembered by me.  As a hospital lab employee, she was always ready to help answer questions , aide in patient location, and just have encouraging conversations.  I really missed her being at the nursing station after she retired but when I would run into her at HyVee she would always regale me about her golf and any other activities she was doing.  My deepest sympathy for your loss of such a beautiful person and soul.  May God send His comforting spirit to you at this time of loss.

    To Barb, Jodee, and Berta,   So sorry to hear about Jackie's  passing.. I think that just leaves the two Bobs and me from our Class of 46.  Jackie, Zid,  Bob Robinson and me were together all 12 years. And we had a pretty good neighborhood!
