Jackie was a long-time employee of the Washington Nursing Center. She was certified as a CNA and QMA. Jackie loved landscaping and doll making. However, her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.

During her lifetime, Jackie mourned the loss of her parents, John and Opal Petty; her husband, Richard; sons, Matthew Wininger and Mark Wininger; and sister, Marlene Brown.
