Jackie took pride in being the first born in her family and made sure, when someone looks back on their encounters that they were reflected with God felt words and encouragements and the path moving forward has everlasting hope joy and love.

She graduated from Glenville High School, Cleveland, Ohio in 1953, after marrying to Lonnie they moved to Roswell, New Mexico Airforce Base, where their first child was born. Upon the return back to Cleveland they bore three other children, Thaddeus diseased in 1963 of Leukemia. The Terrell family m relocated to Seattle, Washington in 1967, after Paul accepted a job with the Boeing company, Jackie stayed home to raise her children. Jackie life changing opportunity happened when Boeing had a massive hire for women with disabilities, she became the best tool room clerk Boeing establishment hired.

Jackie organized and taught other how to use better tools for the job, because her learned knowledge Boeing flew her to many other facilities to teach share knowledge to others.

There was never a fight that our mother wouldn’t take on and proud that you solicit her trust, wisdom and spiritual values and belief, she never wavered from the course (without GPS).

Jackie joined the Boeing Union IAM 751 in 1978, creating a voice for the membership and worked closely with commitment members Gloria   , Henry Nobel, Hope Hall, Shirley Kindred, Ana P and countless other decelerated, dedicated, mission driven Shop Stewards, Union Presidents including the Retirees’ IAM Local 751, work, negotiations and other behind the scene initiatives.

Not only was she committed to the work above she was devoted to GOD. She joined COGIC, in 1968 and never looked back. This was her religion, belief, her walk in this life. She earned an honorary “Mother” title by generous members with her Church, who saw a true believer, a mentor, sister and friend that would share her knowledge of the Lord, seek understanding in scriptures, Friday bible study, events and Sunday Bible School. Let’s not forget Jackie’s famous cakes and pies, she brought to the Church events!

God has called upon his child to be in his bosom to hold through eternity and beyond. There is no reason for tears, sorrow or questioning her journey ahead, she was and is truly blessed, your soul never dies it lives in the creator hands of grace and glory.

In this life as we know it, the Lord in heaven, released her of her last official watch. Because God has requested the harps and angels to call upon her angelic soul, she left us on July 24, 2021 at 1:05am, age 86 young.
