Her younger brother Argy Pickle resides in Uniontown, Ohio with his wife Shirley.
Jackie was strong and independent, yet had a gentle soul. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, and a friend to all she met. She worked for many years at Hawfield’s Child Care Center in Mebane. She sometimes joked that she helped raise “half of Mebane”. She had a life-long love of reading and was an avid Tar Heel fan.
