Jackie was born in Tacoma WA on April 22, 1930 and passed away at the age of 85 on December 18. 2015. She enjoyed having company and she always had homemade pie, cookies or cake to serve.

During her 67 years with her husband Ray, she wore several hats: Bookkeeper and administrator for two nursing homes they owned in Oregon, dispatcher and bookkeeper for their business at Lynch Creek Quarry, and she helped build and landscaped Tanwax Greens GC, the family-owned business, and throughout all that she was a hands-on mother of five. She loved going to luncheons and laughing till they cried with her "birthday club gals,GÇ¥ many of which she went to Eatonville High School with. Jackie is survived by her husband of 67 years Ray Henricksen of Eatonville, Larry (Lisa) Henricksen, Susan Henricksen, Gaille (Gary) Finley, Terry (Jim) Hatton, and Mark (Katy) Henricksen.
