Jacquelyn “Jackie” Arlene (Amdor) Wynn, the daughter of John “Jack” Rolla and Doris Arlene (Miller) Amdor, was born April 7, 1948, in Creston. Jackie’s schooling included country school in Brooks, then attending/graduating from Corning (Class of 1966). During her senior year, she was honored by being selected homecoming queen candidate.
Jackie was united in marriage to Paul Raymond Wynn, Oct. 2, 1966, at Brooks United Methodist Church. Five children were born to bless this union: Debra Arlene, John Raymond, James Woodrow, Matthew Brian and Kimberly Ann.
Growing up, Jackie was involved in her local Adams County 4-H, where she presented home economics projects, showed livestock and reigned as the Adams County Fair Queen for one of those years. As an adult, she was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Family was most important to her. Her love of and pride for her nieces and nephews was never ending. She loved hearing about what they had going on in their lives and was proud of each and every one of them. When she and Paul were blessed with grandchildren, they beamed with pride, doted on each one and spoiled them all rotten. Every moment that she had them near was extra special and memorable for all.
Jackie was a people person and her job paths were proof of that, from her first job to her last. From working in retail, convenience stores and grocery stores, she loved serving the community with a helpful smile and would always ask patrons about their lives and families. When not in the retail field, she loved her years of having a daycare business in her home and then furthered her caregiving at Country Haven taking care of the residents. All of whom received care from her have always held a special place in her heart.
