  1. Mom, you are missed dearly. Thank you for choosing to adopt me and giving me a blessed life that I wouldn’t otherwise have. You are a perfect example of what a true woman of God truly is. Your generosity has helped so many in need. You raised a beautiful family from children to grandchildren and great grandchildren. You will forever live on through Jim,, Shane, Jason, myself, our children and grandchildren and anyone else who had the honor of knowing you. I pray that you will give me guidance and be proud of me. I love you so much ❤️❤️❤️ RIP

  2. From our grade school years, Jackie was always the tallest person in our class, until we moved to Junior High. She lugged a Bass fiddle around as well as anyone ever did. Sweet, kind, helpful and genteel, Jackie was very smart and energetic. Her Dad was my scout master for a time. I enjoyed being her friend.

  3. I am so terribly sorry to hear of Jacque’s passing. Since my Mom and Aunt Barbara were friends for over 50 years Jacque was asked to counsel me when I was a victim of domestic violence in 1997. She was wonderful and helped me move forward.

    I just saw her last year at Jay’s funeral and she was as lovely and kind as ever.

  4. Just so sorry for the entire Perdue family, my heart is aching for you all. Our prayers for comfort and peace during this time of sorrow.

    1. Thank you, Robin, for being our friend. Jacque really enjoyed you both and your ministry. I hope to see you again in your theater.

  5. We are saddened by your loss. We never met Jacque but feel we knew her through Joe and June. They have told wonderful stories of camping in Colorado with Jacque and her husband, playing games with them, and the sweet care and love Jacque gave them. May Jacque RIP. May the Perdue family find strength in the upcoming days through the memories they share. You are in our hearts. We love you.

  6. A beautiful lifelong friend from our growing up years in the 50and 60’s. A wonderful friend from 1st grade to adulthood. A wonderful “blood sister” ..at least we made ourselves sisters in the 50’s. I will miss you my friend
