She is survived by 15 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews and many, many friends.

When her first husband Jeff died in 1985 she went back and finished college to earn her teaching degree. Her love for teaching went back to when she would gather with her friends during the summer and hold classes and teach them the things she had learned in the previous school year. Jacque went on to teach for over 20 years at Northwood Academy. At Crowfield Baptist Church she taught Sunday School, working with young children and senior adults. After retiring she continued substitute teaching and working with children. She also volunteered at two nursing homes in the evening. Her love for people had no boundaries and her smile lit up every room she entered. Laughter was her drug of choice and she dispensed it everywhere she went. She will be truly missed by everyone who has known her.
