Jacqueline "Jackie" Reavis, 89, crossed the bar for her last cruise on January 19, 2013. Jackie was a world traveler with a map on the wall with pins marking everywhere she had been. There is no pin for this last destination.
She was born May 18, 1924 as Jacqueline Fyfe Speirs. She grew up in San Francisco, Calif. where she met and married the love of her life and husband of 65 years, Wayne Reavis. She was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army Air Corps during WWII. Jackie operated Mimi's Yarn Shop in Medford, Ore. and Jacksonville, Ore., a family owned business, for more than 50 years. Jackie hosted an annual gathering at her Jacksonville home known as the "Crumpet Brunch" for 28 years. She was an avid reader, poet, artisan, and master gardener. We will miss her smile.
She was preceded in death by her father, Jack Speirs; and mother, Mimi Buck; and is survived by her son, Jack; daughter, Cathian (Cathi); granddaughter, Charmagne; faithful poodle, Leo; and many, many friends who were made to feel as if they were part of the family.
There will be a celebration of her life at 11:00 a.m. Sunday, May 18, 2014 at McKee Bridge. Memorial contributions may be made to the Southern Oregon Humane Society in her name.
