July 11, 1950 - October 8, 2016
Austin, Texas | Age 66
Jacqueline Wilson Ferrer
A beautiful soul has left her family and friends behind. Jackie knew how to fill our hearts with love, laughter and truth. No matter who you were, or where you were from, she always found a way to make you feel "the love", a universal acceptance. While in her company, Jackie would inevitably find a way to make you smile and forget about the daily burdens of life. She often began her advice with, "I'm just going to keep it real…"and ended it with the part that one may not want to hear. Not only did she enjoy personally connecting with others, but she also had a special fondness for animals. Jackie absolutely loved her part-time, pet dogs, Merrie Jane, Vinnie and Beau and everybody knew it! Gregarious, quite the understatement to describe her personality. Jackie: a wise, caring and generous person. She lived her purpose on earth and enriched the lives of all she met. She will be missed.
In honoring Jackie's request, there was no viewing or funeral services. She is laid to rest at Austin Memorial Park Cemetery. Family and friends are encouraged to celebrate Jackie's life and the memory of her in their own way: a memorial service at the site, church service, prayers, in your hearts.
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style."
Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
