Jacqueline "Jackie" Jean Downing

February 24, 1954 - November 05, 2018

Jacqueline Jackie Jean Downing Jackie, 64, was born February 24, 1954, in Enid, to Jack and Bertha (McClaflin) Downing. She passed peacefully at home Monday, November 5, 2018, with family by her side.
Jackie grew up in Medford, and attended Medford Public Schools, graduating in 1972. She went on to attend NWOSU and the University of Oklahoma.
Later, she received her license from the state to be a nursing home administrator. Jackie worked in longterm care for over 30 years in many locations. During that time, she worked her way up from activities director to administrator.
Jackie enjoyed her nieces and nephews, investing a ton of time with them and sharing her love. They spent countless hours at her house or she at theirs, watching movies, reading books and playing games.
The most fun was had, though, when the parents weren't around or paying attention. They were out driving Jackie's car around Medford at very young ages.
Jackie loved her family dearly and was beyond loyal. She loved her brothers, and they loved her! They never grew out of teasing her, and she never stopped taking it in stride.
Jackie's best friend, however, was her mother. She leaned on Bertha's strength her entire life and never totally recovered from her loss in 2014.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Bertha Downing and nephew, Michael Downing.
Jackie leaves behind three brothers, Bill Downing and wife, Marilyn; Steve Downing and wife, Linda; and Kevin Downing and wife, Mary; all of Medford.
She is also survived by nieces and nephews, Billy Downing and wife, April of New Castle; Kurt Downing and wife, Tiffany of Piedmont; Debra Downing of Mustang; Susan Branch and husband, Mark of Laramie, Wyoming; Jeremy Downing of Medford; Alyssa Beck and husband Andy, of Enid; Lizzie Bruns and husband Aaron of Medford; Aaron Downing of Bethany; Kellen Downing and wife, Arian of Medford; Harley Downing of Edmond; Sydney Looper and husband, Colton, of Edmond; Hayden Downing of Medford, and Piper Downing of Medford.
She also leaves behind countless great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts, cousins and friends.
