My Eulogy To Jackie

Jackie Florian was Blessed from the very beginning by being born into the most loving and giving family you could ever imagine. She opened her arms and her heart to all of those in need, just as she had been raised to do.
The first time I met Jackie was in 1961 Accelerated English class at Cortez High. We went through HS being joined at the hip, in each others classes except for the 2 years of Foreign Language. Most of us that intended to go to college took Spanish or French, not Jackie, she took German and Russian. She was a class officer every year, joined every activity there was, an exceptional athlete being one of the few girls that understood the game of football and she was the one to watch Cheer leading. Jackie was chosen to go to Any Town, I was to go to Girls State. We marched into Mr. Bennet's office and told him that we needed to be switched for they had made a mistake. Mr. Bennet, the Vice Principal, kept us where he thought best. Jackie couldn't wait to tell me the fantastic time she had and I complained of all the hard work I had, she laughed so hard she cried. She graduated with Honors and her speech at graduation was true Jackie. Saying you could be anything you wanted, you just had to believe in yourself and work hard. Even though she was one of the smartest in our class she never gloated. She was the first to laugh at herself, as when she had a hard time with passing her drivers test. When she finally did, she came honking the horn of her parents car and drove around the track. Those of us that witnessed this clapped, she stopped, stood in the middle of the football field and took a bow. That was the Jackie most knew from HS, never a harsh word against another and always smiling.
Jackie then attended the University of Arizona where she pledged Gamma Phi Beta Sorority as her sister Toni had done. She married the love of her life, Richard Martinez. They moved to San Louis Obispo, Ca. for Richard to pursue his Doctorate.
Jackie returned home with their two baby boys, Chris and Matt. Jackie was the most devoted Mom, they were her life. She was a single mom being both mother and father to her sons. She began her life long career in Financial Institutions and was well above the curve for females in the computer field.
Jackie was a loving daughter, proud of her sister Toni and brother-in-law Pete for their accomplishments, adored her nieces, Nicole, Danielle and Tiffany. She was blessed with the birth of her Grandson Nick and last but not least, a Loyal Friend.
Jackie will be missed but she will never be forgotten and will live in the hearts of many, as she has mine for all of these years.
I'm so very grateful to have had you and yours in my life. Forever your friend, Bobbie
