Jackie L. Burgin, 69, and Shirley (Horn) Burgin, 66, both of Frankfort, died Saturday, July 3, 2021, along with their beloved dog, Snowball, as a result of an automobile accident. Jackie was born on Nov. 18, 1951 in Frankfort to Jack and Mary (Myers) Burgin. Shirley was born on Oct. 19, 1954 in Frankfort to Omer Horn Jr. and Gladys Fern (Robbins) Horn. They were married on October 21, 1972 in Tennessee.

Jackie was a 1970 graduate of Clinton Central High School. He worked for Exide Battery in Frankfort for 28 years, Firestone for 12 years, and retired from CNH in Lebanon. He loved fishing and was a member of the County Line Fishing Club. He enjoyed mushroom hunting, target practicing, and growing anything from seed – currently a mango tree.

Shirley was a 1972 graduate of Thorntown High School. She worked for Rescare for five years and raised pigs. She enjoyed gardening, cooking – she loved buying new cooking tools, and she was known to always rearrange the house.

Jackie and Shirley's greatest joy were their grandchildren and watching their sporting events.
