Her funeral will be held at Grace Church with the Rev. Stephen Bondurant officiating. Dates and times of any visitation and the funeral service have not yet been determined. An eGraceNotes will be issued as soon as dates and times are available.

Junior Warden Wanda Miller says of Jackie, "I know Jackie as a loving mother and grandmother, soft spoken, smiling, a true LADY. Jackie for years has taken care of our bulletin boards. She has served on Altar Guild for years and served on Vestry/Mission Council.  Jackie truly has served our Lord in her actions."

Senior Warden says, "Please keep Jackie's daughter Kim Herman and her husband Steve Herman and their family in your prayers at this very difficult time. May her soul rest in peace."

eGraceNotes is published every week or two or three. Our primary purpose is to help keep members and friends of Grace Church up-to-date on what's happening at Grace.

While we try our best to represent the Grace Church congregation, opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of anyone other than the editor (and perhaps not even his!).

The content of eGraceNotes depends on what news is provided us. Thus, the fact that something appears or doesn't appear in eGraceNotes is more likely a matter of whether or not someone provided information to publish rather than editorial bias. Send news that you think would be interesting to

Photos in eGraceNotes are often edited to remove extraneous material.
