The blessing of her life came with the birth of Cassady Brooke, her miracle baby. Jacquetta
married Gary Lunson and they were blessed with 22 wonderful years together.
Jacquetta lived life to the fullest, with a huge heart and a gypsy soul. Her sense of adventure
and wanderlust were ever present, and provided her with several lifetimes worth of memories
and great stories. She poured her love of life into Cassady and her grandchildren. YaYa was
her grandchildren’s pied piper and the crazy fun aunt to her siblings’ children, always leading
them in search of unforgettable adventures. Quetta was a constant champion of the disadvantaged and all creatures large and small. She loved riding horses, fishing, boating, listening to live music
and last but not least, dancing, anytime and anywhere.
A private celebration of Jacquetta's life will be held on May 9, 2020 at Mildred B. Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista, AR and she will be interned at a later date in McAlester, OK. The family requests, in lieu of flowers,
