Jacqueline Joan (Yost) Perry passed away at 85 years of age on January 21, 2012 in Vancouver,
Washington. Jackie was born on October 12, 1926 in Red Cloud, Nebraska to Lester
and Elsie (Turner) Yost. She was the youngest of three daughters.

In the mid-1930’s the Yost family moved West and eventually settled in Weed. Jackie was
a 1944 graduate of Weed High School and called Weed home for over 60 years. She worked
30 plus years for the International Paper Company, retiring as the Shipping and Receiving
Department Foreman in 1980.

On June 14, 1947, Jackie married Joseph Patterson Perry of Dunsmuir. They raised two sons.
Jackie and Joe were rarely apart. They loved being together and with their children. They
enjoyed riding in the car and took every opportunity to be out and about on a drive. Vacations
were always long road trips filled with adventure and excitement.

Jackie and Joe enjoyed music and dancing. For many years they looked forward to the
Fireman’s Ball held annually on New Year’s Eve. Jackie especially enjoyed listening to Joe
play the guitar. Jackie and Joe shared thirty-six loving years together before his passing
in 1984.

Throughout her life Jackie delighted in visiting with family and friends. She was always
thrilled when someone would drop by to spend time talking and laughing. In quieter times
Jackie liked to embroider or play solitaire.

Besides her husband, Jackie was preceded in death by her parents and her sisters, Juel
(Yost) Pederson and Peggy (Yost) Keller.

Jackie is survived by her sons and their families; Jonathon (Michelle) and grandsons,
Jack and Maddox of Vancouver, Washington and Jeffrey (Paulette), grandson Kevin, and
great grandson, Peter of Sacramento, California. Plus numerous nieces and nephews.

Family and friends are invited to gather at the family home immediately following the service.
