Jacqueline "Jackie" Mortenson Obituary

     Jackie had many friends, whom she loved dearly.  They were a very important part of her life.

     Jackie was an excellent cook. She told stories about when she was young, they would practice making candy.  The batches that didn’t turn out would get thrown out in the garden.  This is how she honed her skill. 

     Jackie is survived by 2 daughters, Nancy (Scott) Hansen and Louise (Phil) Spencer. She is also survived by 3 grandsons, Matthew (Angie) Mortenson, Micah (Melissa) Mortenson and Michael (Kira) Mortenson, 3 granddaughters, Laura (Eric) Lively, Abby (Thomas) Dean, Jan (Spencer) Hafer, 2 step grandsons, Brody and Rusty (Carol) Spencer, 19 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews, and dear friends.
