LENOIR, NORTH CAROLINA
April 8, 1960 - May 13, 2020
Jacqueline Brown, 60, passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2020.
Jacqueline was born to Eddie Brown and June Hutchinson on April 8, 1960. At a young age, she accepted Jesus Christ in her life, well actually the church we were raised in at the end of every service you were on your knees at the altar repeatedly asking Jesus to “save you”. Jacqueline re-dedicated her life back to Christ as a young adult. She loved attending church and singing. She often told me about the big bag of candy she had for the kids at the end of each service. I used to tell her, “those parents are going to have big dental bills!” Jack as I called her had a big heart and an infectious laugh that was contagious. I remember Jack telling me about someone’s son who was going to attend a college closed to where I lived in North Carolina and she wanted me to look after them in case they needed anything, so I said, sure, when will they be on campus, Jack says, oh no, they’re not attending school until next year! I was like, huh? She loved everybody’s children. Doing for others brought her joy. Jacqueline worked in the customer service industry and would often tell me of the service awards she received. My daughter Tiffany shared a memory of the times I would send her to spend a couple of weeks in the summer with her aunt and how she would walk to Bojangles every day to buy food while her aunt Jack was at work. Here’s the problem with that, Tiffany gained 10 pounds and I almost didn’t recognize her when I flew to North Carolina to pick her up! Needless to say, I immediately put her on a diet when we got back to NY. Now I cannot confirm or deny this, but my brother Jeffrey said that my brother Kent would sell Jacqueline and I biscuits that no one else wanted to eat. Knowing how older siblings can sometimes be, this probably happened. He also stated which I do remember, that both Jacqueline and I had two parakeets name Dusty and Dolly that never stood a chance! Yeah, I kind of remember the birds not lasting long. The traditions of Tiffany going to Golden Corral with her aunt will be missed. Jack begging us to send her the famous White Castle hamburgers will be missed. The big pan of mac and cheese on Thanksgiving and her waking up throughout the night to baste the turkey will be missed. There are so many stories that we could share but thankfully we also have hilarious video footage taken by her niece Tiffany that will help us reminisce all the good times we had together. Give flowers to your love ones while they can smell it. Once they have passed on from this life to their eternal rest, honestly, it’s too late. I often say, funerals and home going services are not for the ones that have passed on, it’s for us that are living to take a look at our lives and ask ourselves, have we asked Jesus Christ to come into our lives, to forgive us of our sins? Do we believe that he was raised on the third day? Are we living the life that God has laid out for us? Are we walking in obedience to his Word? If the answer is yes, I believe that both you and I will see Jack again. Jacqueline leaves to cherish her memories, two sisters, Tricia Curry, Gloria Hoey,, her brothers-in-law Anthony Curry, Lenny Hoey, three brothers Jeffrey Hutchinson, Curtis Bernard, Dennis Wolfe, a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, church family and friends.
