Jackie married the "Love of Her Life", Frank M. Allen in Georgia on March 21, 1951; he sadly preceded her in death on April 14, 2016, exactly two years to the day that Jackie passed away.

Allen, all of Battle Creek, and Ashley Lopez-Stoner of Tennessee; a great-grandson, Milo Finney; a brother, Wesley (JoAnn) Morgan of Texas; two sisters, Jeanette Timmermann of Georgia, Janice Zarger of Maryland; and her beloved dog, "Hazard". Jackie was also preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Sandy Allen on June 30, 2017; her parents; and five brothers & sisters.

Family was always # 1 to Jackie, and she truly loved spending time with them. She also truly loved the Lord, and faithfully attended Temple Baptist Church and Higher Ground Church. Jackie was an avid reader, and especially like reading mystery, romance and inspirational novels. She also enjoyed traveling, cross-stitching, latch hooking, and watching soap operas.
