She loved singing, especially with her best friend and cousin, Faye Banta. She had a beautiful voice inherited from her Mother, and loved to sing the hymns of the Church. She was a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had a great testimony of the truth of the Gospel.Jackie was well-known for her loving, compassionate and generous spirit. With loving care, she tended to her family and their needs. She helped her sisters and many friends raise their children and called many, her children. She took care of her Mother and Aunt Ethel Taylor until their deaths with all the tenderness, love, and compassion possible. Truly she followed the Savior's example of love and charity. Jackie's influence and example was felt by all who came in contact with her. Her quick wit and graciousness always left an impression with you. Jackie adored all of her nieces and nephews and always had a hug and open heart available for any that needed it. All who knew her loved her.
