"Jackie was a 'sparkplug'. . . she kept the Recorder's Office running on 'happy' with her stories and infectious laugh. She loved a good joke and a good time. Every Christmas she would hang a 6 foot red stocking on a pillar in our office and put her name on it. . . we think of her every time we hang it up in our office! I will always lovingly remember her as a special member of our Recorder Family. May remembering her smile keep her close in your heart and bring you peace during this very difficult time."

"I worked with Jackie in the Recorders office & have great memories of times with her. We even went on a weekend trip once to Redwing Minnesota to a casino. And then there was the Eagles Concert. What a blast! Unfortunately I have not seen her since I retired but am thankful for my memories. She had an infectious laugh & was always happy. Rest In Peace Jackie. My thoughts & prayers are with Jackie?s family, she always talked so fondly of you. "

"This past Christmas was one of the best memories when Jackie and Joyce came down to visit Rick and myself in Oklahoma. The conversations during our time together were great and the trip to Eureka Springs on the mountain top to see my cousin Karen' new home was the best memory that I will carry the rest of my life. You will be greatly missed. Mike Sadler "
