Jacquelyn Maloney Coppock, beloved wife, mother, grandmother,and sister,passed away July 26, 2003 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico after a short but courageous battle with lung cancer.
Jacquelyn was born October 10, 1937 in Joliet,Illinois, the only daughter of John and Wilma Maloney, both of whom preceded her in death. She married Jay Coppock from Columbus, Indiana in 1957 and shortly thereafter moved to Texas where they raised their five children. She graduated from Saint Elizabeth's Nursing School and devoted thirty years to that profession. In 1981, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and through her will and determination saw it through for twenty-five years to its remission. Jackie retired from Doctor's Hospital in 1989 and moved to Puerto Rico where she enjoyed island-hopping in the Caribbean with family and friends.
She is survived by her husband of forty-six years, Jay Coppock; her five children and their spouses: Terri Jackson and husband Jerry, Kenny Coppock and wife Holly, Karen Crews and husband Matt, Jay Coppock and wife Lauri, and John Coppock and wife Tammy. Jackie's greatest pride and joy was her thirteen grandkids: Matthew, Christopher, Tyler, Branden, Alyxandra, Forrester, Morgan, Amanda, Jennifer, Allison, Patrick, Douglas, and William. Her three brothers and their spouses, Patrick Maloney and wife Phyllis, Donald Maloney and wife Sheila, and Mike Maloney, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Kent and Janie Eaton, and many other friends and relatives also survive.
We owe a special thank you to Donald and Sheila Maloney,Tammy Coppock,lifetime friend Barbara Bacot,and to many others for their unconditional love, devotion, and support.
