Jacqueline Gay Newsome-Randick, age 86, peacefully passed at home July 27. Jackie was born June 2, 1932, in San Bernardino, California, to Alfred and Katherine Albertson.
In August 1950, she married Earl Newsome and together they raised four children. After his passing in January 1996 of surgical complications, she married Richard Randick July 27, 1997.
Jackie was a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. She taught Sunday school, sang in the choir, was in ECW, on the alter guild and filled in whereever she could.
Jackie worked at Safeway, Kurt’s Thriftway and Farmer Jacks in the meat market, and as a checker and deli manager. She was a loving mother who truly enjoyed life. She loved working in her garden, doing arts and crafts, oil painting, refurbishing old furniture, and was an avid rock collector. She made friends easily and seemed to love meeting new people. She would carry on lengthy conversations with even total strangers, often hugging them, adding them to her friends list. But above all, she enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
Jackie is survived by her husband, Richard Randick; four children, Susan (Jim) Williams, David Newsome, Daniel (Julie) Newsome and Leslie (Daryl) Ervin; six grandchildren, Natalie, Brooke, Damon, Ryan, Colby and Mackenzie; and seven great-grandchildren.
