Jacqueline "Jackie" Bell, 62, of Idaho Falls, passed away Sun- day, Jan. 26, 2014, at her home.
Jackie was born Feb. 17, 1951, in Idaho Falls to Ernest Leroy Andrus and Ruth Marion Jacobsen Andrus. She grew up in Idaho Falls and attended Bonneville High School.
In 1967, she married John A. Kramer. They had two children while living in Germany and were later divorced.
She married Marshell "Rusty" Hayes Bell, and they had one child. Jackie and Rusty made their home in Idaho Falls. Rusty passed away in March 1978.
For a short time, she ran a family-owned business with her sisters, The Family Tree, an auction and antique house. Jackie owned and operated Jacki's Place Bar until she retired in 1994.
She enjoyed antiques, Harleys and collecting all sorts of things. She also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Jackie was a very free spirit and lived life in her own unique way. She would give you the shirt off her back and ask for nothing in return. Jackie will be missed.
