SHARE Obituary: Jackie F. Black


Jacquelyn "Jackie" Flach Black, age 75, passed away 2 July 2000 at Nephi, Juab, Utah of heart problems complicated by diabetes.

She was born 26 September 1924 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California to Jesse Burnett Flach and Marie Elizabeth Martin Flach. She married Dean L Black 17 October 1942 in Kansas City, Jackson, Missouri. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on their 15th anniversary on 17 October 1957.

Jackie attended schools in Texas. She met her husband while he was serving in the Navy at Corpus Christi. He called her his "Yellow Rose of Texas". She died on the 58th anniversary of their engagement.

Jackie was a great wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her family was her main priority throughout her life. We, as her family, are thankful that she has gone to her heavenly home and is free of the suffering she had to have here in earth.

She had various callings in the LDS Church, but her three loves were her singing, piano/organ playing, and genealogy. She was the director of the Family History Center for 10 years, a calling that she dearly loved. For years she and her daughter spent many hours researching her family tree. Later in her life she learned how to crochet afghans and gave them to her great-grandchildren. She will be missed by all those whose lives she so tenderly touched.

She is survived by her husband: Dean, Deseret, Utah; daughters: Nancy (Gus) Fowles, Sutherland, Utah; Frances (Doug) Meacham, Hayden, Colorado; Linda (Michael) Marantette, Carson City, Nevada; son-in-law: Sid Ogden; 12 and a half grandchildren; 16 and a half great-grandchildren; sister: Carol (Bob) Flowers, Phoenix, Arizona. She was preceded in death by son: Larry Dean; daughter: Audrey; grandson: Gary Lynn Fowles.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday 8 July 2000 at 11 a.m. in the Deseret-Oasis Ward Chapel, 3423 West 4500 South, Deseret. Friends may call at the Nickle Mortuary, 190 South Center, Delta on 7 July 2000 from 7-8 p.m. and at the Church on Saturday from 9:30 - 10:40 a.m. Burial will be in the Deseret Cemetery.
