Jacqueline Louise Pitts

On Monday, May 6, 2019, Jacqueline Louise (Watson) Pitts passed away at the age of 66.

Visitation: 6-8 pm, Thursday, May 9 at Lake Shore Funeral Home
Graveside: 10:00 am, Friday, May 10 at Oakwood Cemetery.

Jackie was born on September 10, 1952 in Big Spring, TX, to James and Mary Margaret Watson. She received her nursing degree from McLennan Community College in 1972, and served in various capacities as a nurse for many years. On July 28, 1973 she married Timothy Frank Pitts at the First Assembly of God, in Waco, TX. They loved and raised two children, Theodore (Ted) Gilbert and Heather Lynn.

Jackie had a passion for creativity and tried her hand at anything that brought her joy. She loved rubber stamping, scrapbooking, making paper, photography, mosaics, sewing, and quilting. She loved creating art and doing arts and crafts with her children. Both of her children have some of her quilts to remind them of her warmth and loving spirit.

She was beautiful, vibrant, generous with her affections, and loved by so many. She was silly, she was kind, she was vulnerable, and she was strong. She was intelligent, capable and encouraging. She leaves behind a legacy of unconditional love and service.

Jackie was preceded in death by her husband; Tim; father, James; mother, Mary Margaret; and brother, Jimmy.

She is survived by her son, Ted and wife, Ashley, and their two children, Hudson and Amara, as well as her daughter, Heather and husband, Russell. She is also survived by her brother, David and several nieces and nephews.

Flowers may be sent to Lake Shore Funeral Home in Waco, TX. In lieu of donations to the family, please consider a donation to the Texas chapter of the ALS Association.

Place of Service: Oakwood Cemetery , 2124 S.5th St.; Waco, TX 76706

    Jackie was absolutely wonderful. While we were living together on Southern California one of the Merriman’s puppies fell into the pool. Jackie fished the puppy out and gave it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The puppy survived and we teased her about it for months. One of a whole lot of things we fondly remember.
