Jacqueline Ann Ramsten, “Jackie”, 77, Stuart, Fla., went home to be with our Lord on April 26th, 2020. On her road to recovery from liver cancer, she passed away unexpectedly in her sleep.
Born in Warsaw, on Nov. 20, 1942, she was the loving daughter of Norman Kelly and Vereen Warren Kelly and a doting sister to her brothers David and Daniel Kelly. All preceded her in death.
She graduated in 1961 from Warsaw Community High School in Warsaw and attended Simpson College. ackie was a member of First United Methodist Church of Stuart.
She was classy and sassy. Dog lover to the max. She loved lunches out with friends, winning at bingo and playing bridge. Being crafty and artistic were her God given talents. Crafting and knitting were just a few of her hobbies. Her knitting specialty was making wash cloths and scrubbies. Sharing them with others gave her great joy. Volunteering at the animal shelter was a gratifying way for her to spend time with the animals and with her friends. Fiercely independent as well as energetic, kind, positive and strong. Always sharing with someone a “Bless your heart.”
Jackie had a deep love for her family and friends. Her pride and joy were her daughters and grandchildren. She was a devoted and loving mother and “Grammy” who will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her daughters Salli Kelchner Bougas, husband Pete, Kelly Kelchner Pearson, Julie Kelchner Cushing, husband Sean, and her seven grandchildren, Nicholas, Emily and Anna Bougas, Spencer and Jacob Pearson, Zach and Leah Cushing, and all her grand-pups, which are too many to list.
