Jessie was a member of Lystra Church. She relished spending time with her family. She enjoyed crocheting and sitting on her porch watching the hummingbirds. She loved collecting chickens which started off as glass chickens and over the years became all kinds of chickens. Her favorite flower was a cape jasmine.
