We will celebrate her life at a memorial service on Saturday, August 22nd at 4:00 p.m. at SL2 Church in Milwaukie, Oregon. She was born in Eugene, Oregon on February 9, 1931 to Jack and Juanita Lewis. The family lived on site at the Lewis Lumber Company that her Granddad and Father owned and operated in Dexter, before moving into Eugene in 1943. After graduation from high school, Jackie attended the University of Oregon, pledging Pi Beta Phi sorority and majoring in business. After two years of college, she moved to Eureka, CA where her family was living. It was there in 1952 that she met Bob Barrett and they were married 6 weeks later. Bob was also in the lumber business and they remained in Eureka for18 years, raised 3 children and made dear and lifetime friends. Bob and Jackie both would tell you those were the best years of their lives. Bob's business took the family back to Eugene in 1968 and then to Red Bluff, CA in 1975. Bob predeceased Jackie in 1995. They both loved playing golf, entertaining and socializing with family and friends and spent many hours volunteering in the community in various ways and organizations. Attending the Episcopal Church nearly every Sunday was a family activity throughout the years. Jackie taught Sunday school early on and was a key planner in the women's social activities of the church in later years. She served St. Elizabeth Hospital's auxiliary for over 20 years and was president for 3 of those years. She participated in the many community activities of Red Bluff Rotary with her husband. Jackie was known as Grandma to children who were not her own as well as having strong influences as a Mother figure to many. She loved to laugh and her friendly and welcoming spirit continued to bring life to those around her in the memory care facility where Alzheimer's took her these last few years. She and her husband both loved and lived life fully with no one being a stranger to either of them for very long. Their children knew the door to The Barrett house was always open to anyone. Their legacy of giving lives on in the lives of their 3 children and their grandchildren as well. Jackie is survived by her two daughters Pam Jacob (Kip), Amy Hawes (Rich), her son Robert Barrett, her brother Richard Lewis (Gayle) 5 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, 5 nieces and one nephew. Private burial will take place at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland with her husband Bob.
