Jackie Lynn Jones

Our grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, and daughter, Jackie Lynn Jones, passed away on April 19, 2020 in Washington, Utah. Hands-down, her ultimate sense of purpose and pride were her children: Shelby Paige Dahl and Garrett Leon Marchbanks. Through them, she received her precious granddaughters, Reagan Julieann (“Ladybug”) and Blakelee Mae (“Bumblebee”).

She was born on May 6, 1974 in Payson, Utah. She grew up in Payson, ultimately graduating from Provo High School in 1992. She completed an associate’s degree at Utah Valley University. She loved her country. She watched any Utah football game she could. Attending music concerts was one of her favorite pastimes. Her greatest joy was spending time with family and friends. Her last happy adventure was spending time with her friend, Susie McGowan, and special cousin, Audrey Scheumann, at Susie’s wedding.

Jackie worked hard at her education growing up. She worked hard at any job that she had. The last several years brought many battles that she fought as bravely as anyone could. As much as we wanted to save her from those battles, our love and hope just weren’t enough. She is now in a place where she can finally be at peace. As a family, we are sad to find our way to begin the journey of healing without her. Understanding why it had to happen this way will remain a question for us. We are envisioning her among the sunflowers with her beautiful smile.

Along with her children and grandchildren, she is survived by so many people who love her. Her parents, Pat Nuttall and Hal and Ila Jones, will always have their “Cracker Jack” as a special part of their souls. Her brothers and sisters will always hold her dear to their hearts and never forget the times that they had growing up together: Tonya and Bryan Edvalson, Gene and Jessica Jones, and David and Melodie Jones. She also has brothers and sisters that she got to know as adults: Noelle and Ryan Anderson, Melinda Cummings, Adam and Emilee Cummings, Josh and Rivka Cummings, Sam and Brita Cummings, and Michael Cummings. Along with all of these siblings she will be missed by 27 nieces and nephews. Her grandmother, Melba Smith, will always remember her as a sweet and beautiful baby. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Bryce and Myrle Jones and Jack Smith and her step-father Robert Nuttall. We are comforted knowing that they are embracing her with their love.

Jackie’s last message to us all was: “Laugh your heart out. Dance in the rain. Cherish the moment. Ignore the pain. Live, laugh, love, forgive, and forget. Life’s too short to be living with regrets.” Her life was definitely too short for all of us. We will miss her. We are so grateful that we have had her in our lives and to have been loved by her.

Due to current circumstances, we will be holding graveside services at the Chester Cemetery in Chester, Utah at Friday, April 24, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.

Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, 110 S. Bluff St., St. George, UT, (435) 673-2474.

I will never forget you taking a full day out of your life to sit in an auditorium to watch my girls compete in a dance competition and the day I showed up at Aunt Pats to show off my new baby boy and you were in heaven holding him and loving on him, you were so excited to see us. You were my protector and I love you for that. I will miss you my Jackie.

  4. Jackie,
    My beautiful sweet cousin. I’ll never forget you. I remember when you worked at Allens grocery store. I used to go in there when you were working. Stalking shelves. You were working so hard but when you saw me you would smile so big and we would talk for a minute. I remember visiting you guys in Payson when we were kids. You and Gene used to get into some pretty crazy fights! Like most brothers and sisters do. But you always made up and then we would all hang out and have a great time. You were very patriotic and had a very strong love for our country and President. I’m going to miss your Facebook posts. I’m going to miss you. Till I see you again rest in heaven at peace. Love you cousin

  5. Our hearts are with all of you during this difficult time. I hope you feel our hugs and love for you all. May peace be with Jackie and her sweet family💞

  7. Jackie, I miss you already. I’m so grateful for the last act on this earth was to make sure mom was being taken care of. I love you.

  8. To all of the family. I’m so sorry to hear about Jackie. She was so much fun. I am so grateful for being her neighbor for so many years. Tonya and I would always okay “school”, and poor Jackie was always our student. I have so many fond memories. When we were adults I had the honor of reconnecting with Jackie. She hadn’t changed a bit from being a little girl. Her lust for life was exactly the same. She loved her family more than words could say. You will be missed.

  9. From Dad and Ila

  13. My sweet sister,

    It’s been eight days since that phone call that will forever change my life. I will never be able to change the things that I wanted to change. I will never get to watch the Utes beat the Cougars with you again. All of the things we did that made us laugh together are gone. I wanted to badly to take the hard things away from you. I couldn’t.

    I am so glad that you have found peace. You deserve that. I love you more than you ever understood. I won’t forget our happy times. I will miss you forever. Thank you for taking care of mom in your final days. I know how worried you were about her. We got her. We won’t let you down.

    I love you forever and always.
