Jackie was born on August 19, 1934 in Montgomery, AL. Jackie was a long-time employee of DeSoto County Schools. She enjoyed many things in life; some of them included, baking, solving word puzzles and talking with her friends and family on the phone. Mrs. Huling was a devoted Christian who loved reading her bible and daily devotions. Jackie was a faithful member of DeSoto Hills Baptist Church and was honored to have grown so close to all of her church friends. Some of her favorite television shows were Pit Bulls and Parolees and movies on the Hallmark Channel. Jackie’s favorite type of music was gospel; and when it would play, she would immediately start singing and encourage others to join. She was such an uplifting person and brought joy to everyone she met. Mrs. Huling will be truly missed by all her family and friends.
Jackie is survived by her children, Randy (Barbara) Huling, Jack (Donna) Huling, Joe Huling, and Faith (Ray) Wilson; grandchildren, Melissa (Edward) Eldred, Ryan (Olivia) Huling, Jeffrey (Mallory) Huling, Adam (Katie) Huling, Ashley (Anthony) Sumiejski, Philip Carter, and Kelly (Jason) Childress; nine great-grandchildren; sister, Patricia Bangle; longtime family friend, Inez Lester; her Sweet Pea, Jeanette Shack; caretakers, Paulette Stancil, Ginger Wright, and Wanda Kennon.
