Jackie was a wonderful person that I had the honor to work with at Consultants in Radiation Oncology. She was always positive, quiet, talented and just a wonderful person to be around. I am sorry for the loss to all her family and friends. She will be missed and remembered.
We are so sorry for the loss of Jackie. She was always so sweet and fun! She talked about her grandchildren and how she loved all of you so much! We know you will all miss her so much.
Glenn, I’m so sorry for your loss! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Glenn, I’m so very sorry to hear of the loss of you Mom. She was a super nice lady and I will miss her wave as she drove past my house. I will keep y’all in my thoughts and prayers and may the Lord wrap his loving arms around her family and friends during this difficult time.
Glenn and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was always such a sweet and caring person. Last time I visited her she gave me her corn bread recipe. Hers was so good and never occurred to me to make it ahead of time like she did. Many fond memories some old, some not so old. May God wrap each of you in His comforting arms.
Glenn and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jackie worked for me for years. She was an amazing employee and better yet a wonderful and very dear friend. I loved her dearly.
Love and prayers for you all.
My sister Carol and I will always remember Jackie’s smile, spontaneous laugh, and the warm hospitality she extended when you were in her home. She was our mother’s youngest sister and holds a special place in our heart.
Glenn I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom will be very missed. My Mom always enjoyed the company she had and the friendship that was really so special to her. I have always loved your Mom and I thought of her often. There’s no one on earth that will ever hold a candle to her.
I am so sorry for your loss. I have many memories of Mr and Mrs Koonce.
My sister rode in the play days many times.
Thought and prayers to all family and friends.
