Jacque loved music of all kinds from Percy Sledge, The Platters, Dobbie Brothers, Bee Gees to Daryl Hall and John Oats. She was an avid reader. From time to time she like to watch old TV shows and a few new ones. Jacque was the kind of woman that helped others before helping herself. Sometimes to a fault. Especially when it came to her puppies. (LOL) Seriously, she would give a stranger a ride, or the shirt off of her back.
The latest and greatest thing she did was in December, 2014. She gave her life to the Lord at bedside in the hospital after her first spell with COPD. Then she would have daily Bible study with her children and always asked great questions regarding the Scriptures...SHE WAS ON FIRE AND THIRSTY FOR MORE OF GOD'S WORD. Her love for the Lord was incedible. She was like a sponge when it came to the Word. She was highly intelligent and could ask some of the best questions about the Bible that would leave you scratching your head. Reading and comprehension were two of her strong traits. She wasn't afraid to tackle anything on paper and was mechanically inclined. Our Mother was great at making you smile with her kind words and jokes. She had a laugh that was contagious. She always gave her children and grandchildren the confidence that they could accomplish anything.
She was a builder of your soul. Mom would have wanted us to continue to worship Jesus and not be ashamed of the Gospel, and we are not! We will continue to spread the Gospel. She would want us to keep in touch and grow stronger as a family, and if you have a puppy, she would want you to love it too....HaHaHa. She was a true Weeda-Woo, and Yuck and Suzzy will be together in eternity.
Graveside services will be conducted at the Karnes City Cemetery on W. Riddleville St. in Karnes City, TX at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 25, 2016 with Rev. Jay Myers of WoodsEdge Church of the Woodlands, TX officiating.
The family would like to express a special thanks to Linda Johnson Murphy. We can not tell you how much we appreciate your selfless contribution of medication for mom when she needed it. You truly were an earthly angel to find ways to help her. Our special thanks also go out to Margie and Judy for helping us when we were in need. You were there for us in a big way. You both took us in with no questions asked or required a repayment for anything. You just loved us! We love all of you!
