Jacquelyn Carol Jones passed away July 19, 2018, at 9:55 pm at her home, 257 Bates Rd., Manhattan, Montana, with her family by her side. Jackie was born June 2, 1962, in Waxahachie, Texas, to Charles and Barbra Ann Farina. She was the oldest of four children. She graduated high school in Hobbs, New Mexico, and attended Southwestern Assembly of God College. She spent the young years of her life traveling across America holding revival meetings with her parents and family. In 1984 Jackie’s family moved to Bozeman to pastor Christian Center Church. That same year she married David Michael Jones on July 27 in Bozeman. David and Jackie made their home here in Bozeman and began their family. Jackie and David had six children their following years.

Jackie served and loved Jesus with her whole being. She wanted everyone she encountered to encounter Him. Therefore, she served people in the Gallatin Valley as a youth pastor, children’s pastor, women’s leader, prayer leader, missions advocate, and more at Christian Center and Abundant Life Fellowship. She also began a women’s conference, Unearthing Destinies. She had a servant’s heart, an unwavering faith, and a passion to see the love of God change people’s lives. A community advocate, Jackie organized drives that equipped local schools as well as the police and fire departments.

Much of Jackie’s life revolved around her five children and serving the community in whatever way she could. She was passionate about reading books, quilting, cooking, praying, traveling, and spending time with family. She loved to celebrate any chance she had and loved the holidays with all the family. Jackie’s passion for Jesus impacted everyone she met.

Jackie was known for her unwavering faith and unconditional love for our Savior Jesus Christ. She poured her life out in any way she could find to serve the people around her. She longed to see revival and unity in the Gallatin Valley. Jackie’s love for the Lord was worn on her sleeve and everybody she encountered was touched by her love for the Lord. She always loved to pray for people or agreed with others for their miracle as they were praying and agreeing with her. Jackie loved the word of God, loved to preach, and was a true prayer warrior. Jackie’s faith was unwavering.  She believed that she would be healed all the way to the end, death was never an option in her eyes. She knew it was a win-win either way. She would be alive and well, fully restored here on earth or there in Heaven. Jackie is now rejoicing in Heaven with her Heavenly Father along with family members.

She is survived by her husband, David Jones; her sons, Joshua, Christopher, Michael, Matthew; her daughter, Annie; grandson, Colter Jones; as well as her parents, Charles and Barbara Farina; her brothers, Charles Jr. and Steve Farina; and sister, Joni Franklin; her in-laws, Orby and Betty Jones; in addition, four sisters-in-law; three brothers-in-law; fourteen nephews; and seven nieces.

Jackie is now rejoicing with her Heavenly Father. She was greeted in heaven by her daughter, Amy Ann Jones and many others.

Visitation will be held Thursday, July 26 with family present from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dokken-Nelson, and on Friday, July 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Grace Bible Church on South 19th.  A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, July 27 at 3 p.m. at Grace Bible Church with a reception to follow.  Interment will take place at Meadow View Cemetery after the reception.
