Jackie was a longtime member of the Smithton Page Turners Book Club, where she frequently made us laugh. She took seriously her responsibilities to her parish, the Book Club, and the Library Board. She was so unique and delightful, and we will miss her greatly.

Thank you Linda, we didn't know about the Smithton Page Turners Book Club. I wanted you to know that on Saturday she wanted me to dial the phone for her to call the Library, which I did, she needed to renew her library book!
