Jackie was born March 17, 1957, in Hammond, Ind., to Clarence and Norma Lahners. The oldest of their seven children. After graduating from Osceola High School in 1975 she worked at UFE in Dresser.

As well as two grandchildren that she loved and cherished deeply, Gavin and Kylie.
Jackie was passionate about doing crafts but crocheting beautiful and personalized gifts ranging from blankets, scarfs to shawls for family and friends is what she loved best. When she wasn’t filling her home with the wonderful smells of her baking goodies, she could be found in her chair crocheting something new. With two girls and two boys, Jackie was involved in Scouts. She was a “huge cookie mom” and an amazing troop leader for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. For the last 14 years she has been the coordinator of the Monday night mixed doubles local pool league. Her family and friends describe her as an amazingly wonderful and caring woman with a heart of gold. She will be missed greatly.
