Jackie was born January 13, 1938 in Benton Harbor; the daughter of Jack and Maxine (Becker) Goins. She owned and operated Limberlost Nursery in Hagar Township for 18 years prior to her retirement in 2002. Jackie loved all things that involved nature and the outdoors. She was an animal lover, which included several horses she owned over the years. She was active in volunteer work with her church that included several mission trips to Haiti, as well as with the Watervliet TEC Therapeutic Equestrian Center and the mentorship program with Benton Harbor schools. She also enjoyed camping and was a member of the Corvette Coventry of Southwest Michigan with her husband Gary, who preceded her in death in September of 2018. Jackie had a very outgoing personality that allowed her to easily make friends with anyone she met. Above all else, Jackie loved her family the most and spending time with her precious grandchildren.
