I would like to extend my deepest heartfelt sympathy to Jackie's family and friends. I met Jackie through my aunt, Mary, who was friends with Jackie since the 9th grade. I will always remember Jackie's smile and friendliness along with her love of making such life-like, beautiful dolls. May God bless and comfort you. Lisa Landolt Lisa Anne Landolt, January 16, 2009 Jackie befriended me when we moved to Richardson from Albuquerque in 1986. We were both in Margaret Mulvely's Bell Choir at Spring Valley U.M.C. Jackie gave me her Bell Choir uniform right before she moved to another church. When I needed to find a local dentist she recommended Drs. Pietsch and Nutt, who we still go to and are happy with. She was a warm, loving, and caring lady. My prayers and sympathy go to her family. Love, Joanna Shampine Joanna Shampine, January 10, 2009 We met Jackie when Jennie Readey, Sue's cousin, introduced us a few years ago. She was friendly, kind, and joyful then as well as recently, when she was suffering so much. She didn't show it and we admired her courage. Heaven has surely added another member to It's Choir and she is singing joyfully again. Sue and Joe Lozano Sue and Joe Lozano, January 10, 2009 Jackie was a lady. She was a lady of Character; a lady of Grace, Integrity, and Humility. She was a lady of many talents but most of all, she was a lady of STRENGTH. I was so honored to call her my friend.

Gwen & Don Bowen Gwendolyn Jones Bowen, January 9, 2009 I remember sitting at the dinner table with the Bewley's when Tara and I were in Junior High School. It was the Bewley's that took me to church with them countless times at Spring Valley United Methodist where I have so many great memories. I remember Jackie being very involved in the church and choir and handbells. I remember her at all the Berkner football games and going to Friday's afterward. I remember when She and Kim moved in their current house from Garland and how excited she was and so proud of how beautifully they had decorated it. I remember lots bridal showers and baby showers at the house and how special she made them. Jackie will always be in my heart. Stephanie DeLay, January 9, 2009 Jackie was beautiful, inside and out.
