Condolences

So wonderful and nice person, Jackie's smile and sense of humor helped me have a better day! We only knew Jackie and Jan for a short time, but together they brought happiness even when things were not going so well with Jackie's health. Jan showed me what a good husband does as best he can. Thanks Jan.
Another chapter of life goes on for all of us and Jackie is there holding the pages open for all of us. Thanks Jackie!

I enjoyed Jackie's stories of her career, times in Texas with her husband Jan, and the joy she experienced dancing. She was always friendly, curious and kind. We shared many evenings eating out at various local restaurants and Tuesday nights during the summer listening to the bands in East Tawas. I miss her smile and positive attitude. May her spirit and example lighten the grief of her loved ones.
