Jacqueline May Pierpoint Obituary
Jacqueline May Pierpoint, 91, of Blackfoot, Idaho passed away Sept. 17, 2016 at Bingham Memorial Hospital from natural causes.  
Jackie was born at home on Sept. 1, 1925 in Huntington Beach, California. She was the youngest of 10 children to Albert and Annie Lake. The Lakes were from Guernsey Island, England and had immigrated to California in 1910. Jackie had two sisters and seven brothers. She loved being with her family for all family events. Jackie attended schools in Huntington Beach and graduated from Huntington Beach High School in 1943. During her school years she was an excellent softball pitcher.
Jackie attended Long Beach Community College in Long Beach, California studying Library Science. She went to work for the Westminster School District as an assistant librarian and curriculum clerk. She made lifelong friends there.
Jackie knew of Lloyd Pierpoint in high school as one of the Seal Beach kids, but did not connect with him until Lloyd returned from World War II. Jackie's brother Kenny Lake married Lloyd's sister Eleanor Pierpoint and Jackie and Lloyd were reintroduced and then married in 1947 in Riverside, California.
Jackie and Lloyd lived in Huntington Beach and had three children, Wayne, Connie and Glen. At age four, Connie died from a heart condition. Jackie and Lloyd were later divorced. Jackie raised Wayne and Glen in Garden Grove, California. After her retirement from the Westminster School District, Jackie worked at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County as a security screener.
Jackie moved to Windsor in Northern California in 1990, wanting to be closer to her grandchildren. Not wanting to be idle, she worked as a merchandise restocker in numerous retail stores in Sonoma County. In 2005, she and her son Glen and daughter-in-law, left the Sonoma Napa county area to move to Blackfoot for a new adventure in life.  
Jackie was an avid and proficient golfer and bowler. Even after coming to Blackfoot, she participated in two bowling leagues. She also enjoyed being a member of the Red Hat Society in Blackfoot. She loved to travel and took many trips throughout the United States, Mexico, and England. She loved gardening, crafting, and being with people. She was an amazing hostess and loved entertaining and helping others.  
Jackie is survived by her sons, Wayne Pierpoint of California, Glen Pierpoint (Amy Flickinger-Pierpoint) of Blackfoot; three grandchildren, Casey, Jesse and Connie; four great-grandchildren; and many wonderful nieces and nephews and numerous friends.
Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, all of her siblings, and her daughter, Connie.
