antweiler-picJackie Antweiler, wife of her cherished husband, Gary for 46 years, completed her earthly, baptismal journey on October 11, 2016. She died peacefully after a brief illness. Jackie spent the last eleven years of her life living on Blue Creek in a home she and Gary designed.

Jackie is survived by Gary Antweiler, her husband whom she married at the First Baptist Church in Odessa, Texas on April 10, 1971. She is also survived by her three brothers, Richard, Robert and Gary Porter all of Texas and her aunt Zairah of Evergreen. She was the only girl in her immediate family and the youngest of four. She is also survived by a sister Jeudi. Jackie was beloved by many nieces and nephews and God children and will be deeply missed.

She was involved in the ministry and many activities of her church, Evergreen Lutheran. She quilted, hosted memorial and funeral meals, attended Java and Jesus, her sisterhood Bible study, worshipped regularly and made many members of Evergreen Lutheran and visitors as well, feel welcomed and loved. Her life was a gift to anyone who had the privilege to know her. Her death is a sad event for her family, friends and church.

    So deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our dear friend Jackie. Taken from us too soon. She was truly one of the most amazing woman we have ever known. Genuinely the salt of the earth. Always loving, caring, doing and thinking of others. And never passing up an opportunity to laugh, have fun, and live her life to the fullest. She was an Angel here on earth, as she no doubt is now in Heaven. Gary, we are so deeply sorry for your loss. Jackie loved you like no other, as we know you did her. You two are soulmates, my friend. And we pray God gives you the strength you need today, tomorrow, and every day until you meet up with your bride again. We feel so honored and blessed to have known her, and have her in our lives. RIP our dear friend, “Honey Jackie” … your amazing smile, laugh, heartfelt love, and genuine friendship will be sorely missed. We love you.
    Laura & DeWayne Smith
