Jackie was raised in North Bend and graduated North Bend High School in 1964. Shortly after high school, she married Len Spencer in North Bend. Between living in North Bend and Eugene, they had three children before they divorced. She later married John Cannon of Coos Bay, where she gained three additional children to her family. Jackie had many jobs over her life, including working as a phlebotomist and serving numerous individuals while care-taking in a facility and in home.
She was a generous woman filled with hospitality, love and compassion for her family and friends. She was a beloved grandmother that cherished her time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jackie will be greatly missed by many, but we all take comfort that she is now free of pain and sickness in the arms of Jesus.
