Jackie was a strong supporter of her children. She encouraged them through whatever interests they had—whether it was sports, 4-H, or all of life’s ups and downs. She enjoyed gardening, crafts, baking, and loved animals. Jackie especially loved her grandchildren. She had a huge heart and was one of the kindest people you would ever have met. Her great sense of humor and the many memories she shared will be remembered forever.

Her loving dog, Spike, was by her side until the end.
She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Holzer; husband, Randy Buss; in-laws, Howard and Joan Buss; and her niece, Traci Buss.
