The Class of 1962 offers its condolences to the family and friends of our classmate Jackie Sue as we knew her.  She was a bright star among many and a great inspiration to all.

Class of 1962 Union City-Wayne High School Mar 18 2018 12:00 AM

There is much sadness in my heart today since I learned of Jackie's passing last evening. Thank you Crysta for calling me.  As Jackie's roommate for three years of nursing school, I keep many fond memories.  We kept in contact over the years at Christmas time. Most recently, we enjoyed our 50 year Nursing Reunion and then again after her surgery, we met for lunch in Muncie with another classmate.  Jackie was always up beat and always had a smile, even then, knowing what she was facing.  My sincerest sympathy, Larry, to you and your family.
