    Jackie and Bill were what we called "pew partners" at WUMC. She was such a sweet person and over the years she has been missed after she lost Bill. Loved them as a couple and know they are joined together again w/our heavenly father. Prayers and sympathy to the family.

    Mr. and Mrs. Lytle were wonderful friends to all working people and I will miss them both. Miss Jackie befriended my parents Ruth and Arnold Keith many times over the years and she and Bill were always available for conversation and advice. Godspeed Miss Jackie....Rest in peace.
