Jacqueline S. STUTZMAN Obituary
Jacqueline S. STUTZMAN

Jacqueline S. Stutzman, 76, died peacefully at home on Guemes Island, WA, Jan. 17, 2013. Jacque was born Aug. 29, 1936 to Francis I. "Smitty" and Bernice (Iosty) Smith in Orange, NJ. A graduate of Coe College (BA Biology, 1958), Jacque never stopped learning. Her varied career included jobs with Bell Laboratories and The Herbfarm and volunteer work with the American Cancer Society, the National Forest Service, Arizona State Parks, and various state and local environmental organizations. She was a skilled gardener and master of just about every craft to which she set her mind. She married James S. Stutzman July 3, 1965 in Red Bank, NJ, and together they explored the mountains and lakes of New York, Washington, Arizona and all points in between. Kind, funny, selfless and curious, Jacque was close to her family and made lasting connections with people of all ages and from all walks of life. Wherever she went, she made plants grow and people smile. She is survived by Jim, her husband of 47 years; sister, Margaret (and spouse Maurice) Pair of Guemes Isl.; daughter, Crispin Stutzman (and spouse James Helfield) and grandson, Eric Smith Helfield of Bellingham. A celebration of Jacque's life is planned for summer 2013, in her garden. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, WA and the San Juan Islands.
