Jacqueline “Jackie” Grey Nunn was born in High Point, NC on December 17, 1931 and was able to slip on to her heavenly home on May 16, 2018. She was a survivor and a fighter. She fought cancer and won for 25 years. “We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us” (Corinthians 4 v8). Participating in the Relay For Life and going to the cancer meetings at High Point Regional was something she enjoyed. She was a researcher and self-advocate for her cancer.
Jackie loved her family who preceded her in death and everyone survived who will miss her presence, earthly fire and wonderful angel pies. Widowed early, she was a hardworking single mom, fun and loving grandmother “Gaga” and caring great-grandmother. She loved God, her Church and congregation at Springfield Baptist. These friends were a very important part of her spirit and love for life.
Her hands cut the hair of many as she worked being a hairdresser and friend. She enjoyed gardening vegetables and flowers. Watching bluebirds and hummingbirds always put a smile on her face. Over the years she had many dogs, who she loved dearly; Peppi, Winston, Meg, Muffin and Bailey.
Jackie was preceded in death by her spouse, Billy Joe Nunn; mother, Opal Edmonds; and stepfather, Jeff Goude. She is survived by her daughter, Vicki Hollingsworth and husband, Randy; grandchildren, Jeff Hollingsworth, and wife Kristin, Jennifer Cashion and husband, Jeff; great-grandchildren, Holden Hollingsworth, Beau Hollingsworth, Charlee Cashion and Sadie Cashion; and an aunt, Ruby Gill, of Marietta, GA.
Funeral Services will be held at 2pm Sunday, May 20, 2018 in the chapel of Cumby Funeral Family Funeral Service in Archdale, with Rev. Bobby Loving officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Interment will be following in Floral Garden Memorial Park Cemetery.
The family would like to express our thanks for the help and care by Westchester Manor and Hospice of the Piedmont. If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to Hayworth Cancer Center, High Point Regional Health Foundation or Hospice of the Piedmont.
