Jody Jacks, 86, of Terre Haute, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 21, 2020 while listening to the song ‘Soon and Very Soon.’ Her firm belief in God gave her and her family a sense of peace and comfort. Her final days were spent listening to her favorite hymns and being covered by the prayers of those that loved her.
Jody was born on August 31, 1933, in Terre Haute, to George Herald Fleschner and Bertha Ellen Walls Fleschner and they have preceded her in death. Jody graduated from Honey Creek High School and retired from Pfizer after more than thirty years of service.
Jody accepted the Lord as a child and rededicated her life as an adult at the Pilgrim Holiness Church. She served as a faithful prayer warrior for all who knew her and even some that didn’t. Her testimonies were a blessing to many over the years. She was a source of encouragement and continuously praised her Lord in all circumstances.
Second to her love for her Lord, was her love for her family. She was married to her sweetheart James D. Jacks on March 26, 1954. They were married for 65 years until his death last April, and they have been reunited just in time for their 66th anniversary. Their children and great grandchildren brought her much joy and she loved spending time with them. Her survivors include her brother George Fleschner and her sister Alice Steward; a son Mike Jacks and his wife Cindy; a daughter Pam Jacks; her grandchildren Mandy (Jamie) Ribolla, Michelle (Jason) Schimmel, Jessica Cooper, and Jennifer (G.A.) Gann; her great grandchildren Tate Cooper, Braden Schimmel, Brilee Schimmel, Taylor Cooper, Brody Schimmel, Kaydance Gann, James Ribolla, Brock Schimmel, Wyatt Gann, Ada Ribolla, and Owen Gann and a large and loving extended family. She was preceded in death by her brothers Ernie and Alex Fleschner; and sisters Roberta Huber, Iva Sandberg, Kiva Halt and Janet Krueger.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Gideons International for Bibles.
A private graveside service and burial will be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
