  3. CandleImageMy sympathy to all who knew and loved Jackie – we all loved her! Jackie and I went to school together from Jr High on and went separate ways after graduation. We reconnected a few years ago, and I feel so blessed to have spent some long lunch dates laughing, reminiscing, or solving the problems of the world. Jackie was kind , funny, quick witted, competitive and extremely courageous. I will miss you my friend.

  4. CandleImageMy sincere condolences to the Gerlock family. I met Jackie through Elmwood Ladies Nine Tees golf league and I can honestly say that she was one of the sweetest persons I have ever met. I enjoyed the times we were in a foursome and rode in a cart together. She was fun and easy to be with. Rest in peace beautiful Jackie.

    May God Bless the family at this most difficult time.

  6. CandleImageDear Gerlock Family,

    It is so sad to have lost such a lovely soul. Jackie gave the greatest of hugs and her internal beauty was only equaled by her external beauty. I will miss her presence on the golf course and think of her often, knowing when I do so, she will always be in my heart.

    My sincerest condolence to the family.

  7. I’m so sorry for your loss! I knew Jackie many years ago when we just young adults! Her sister Joanne was a good friend and roommate. I’m so sad to read about both Jackie and Joanne. My deepest condolences and prayers for your family 🙏🙏

  8. Sam and miranda,
    So sorry for your loss. Jackie was such a nice, friendly person. I met her at the golf course and enjoyed playing golf with her. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  9. I am truly saddened by the loss of my dear friend Jackie. We were friends for over 20 years. I worked with her at 3 different employers in Las Vegas because she took me under her wing. She was not only a terrific boss but a wonderful friend. Our friendship lasted years after we stopped working together. I loved her great sense of humor & sarcasm. She was one of a kind. Miss & love you my friend.

  10. I was so glad to meet her playing golf on Tuesday mornings at Elmwod Golf Course. She as the sweetest person. It breaks my heart. God Bless you Jackie.
