Jackie had a curious and analytical mind. She liked to research many subjects as well as her hobbies of oil painting, all forms of needlework and sewing. She spent many hours tracking down and compiling the family genealogy. She enjoyed working in accounting She worked in many positions throughout the West Coast but her favorite position was working for Yakima Valley College.

A private celebration of her life will be held later this spring.
