Heaven gained an amazing angel Mrs. Jacquelyn Ann (Hawkins) Koch of Vassar, MI passed away suddenly early Saturday evening July 16, 2016. Jackie was 86. She was greeted by her husband Joe, and they are now walking together the streets of gold.


Jacquelyn Ann Hawkins was born in Merrill, Michigan on January 5, 1930 and was the daughter of the late Harry and Renew (Olds) Hawkins. Jackie was married to Joseph Koch, and together she and Joe raised their family in Vassar, MI. For 32years Joe and Jackie owned and operated the Vassar Building Center. After retirement Jackie helped out at the Vassar elementary schools and St. Paul Lutheran School in Millington, and at the Seven Rivers Christian School when she wintered in Florida. It was her passion to make sure the children had some positive reinforcement in their lives before each school day ended. All the children loved her and she became known as "Grandma". Jackie has been currently attending the Richfield Church of the Nazarene in Otisville, MI. She was an amazing woman of God and always kept everyone in her prayers.
