Jacqueline Elaine Haynes-Springer, 54, of Lebanon, died Jan. 22, 2018, at Cox South Hospital in Springfield.
She was born May 13, 1963, in Seattle, Wash. and lived there until an adult. She attended Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio and received a degree in Journalism/Photojournalism in 2009. Jackie loved sharing her life with her service dog “PD,’’ fishing, football, writing, cherishing all of God’s creation through photography, reading, traveling, volunteering with non-profit organizations and helping others. She was a fiercely loyal friend to those who loved her and she never met a person who wasn’t worthy of kindness.
Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, Jack E. and Janet (VanDerMale) Haynes.
Jackie is survived by two sisters, Dorene (Haynes) Strange and Adrienne Haynes; one aunt, Violet Phillips; one uncle, John VanDerMale; many nieces and nephews; she is also survived by Mary Bennett, her best friend of 17 years, and service dog “PD.’’
A celebration of life service will be held at 6:30 p.m. March 1, 2018, at the Lebanon-Laclede County Library in Lebanon.
Per Jackie’s request, she wanted to be buried in Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery in Seattle, Wash. with her family, so in lieu of flowers a go fund me page has been set up, titled “Jackie’s final trip home to Seattle.’’ https://www.gofundme.com/jackie039s-final-trip-home
