Jackie Lee Armbruster

July 03, 1960 ‒ September 22, 2018

Marion, Ohio

Jackie Lee Armbruster, a funny and giving woman, passed away at her home on Saturday, September 22, 2018 surrounded by her family.  Jackie was a lifelong Marion resident and was 58 years old.

Jackie was born in Marion, Ohio on July 3, 1960 to Carl E. “Gene” and Marjorie R. (Ferguston) Armbruster.  Here she attended Marion City School graduating from Harding High School and Tri-Rivers in 1978.  In Jackie’s younger years, she worked for Cummins Cleaning Services and helped to provide home health to those in need, but her true calling was being a mother.

Jackie had a wonderful personality always willing to help those in need.  Her ability to always laugh coupled with her humorous personality made her the life of any event.  She was a fierce defender of her family and made sure no one went without a good meal (including the neighborhood cats).

Jackie loved her church family at Genesis Church in Marion.  She could be found most Sundays helping at the snack table and socializing with the church members.

Jackie is survived by loving companion, Sam Cole; mother, Marjorie; children, Alicia (Hector) Armbruster-Villasenor of Marion, Sammy Cole, and Emily (Gabriel) Hernandez; step-children, Alyssa (Mark) Lambert and Kylene Curl; grandchildren, Aaliyah, Andres, Adriana, Octavio, Dianna, Gabriel, Nathan, Logan, and Koltan; sister, Gail Armbruster; very special friend, Debra Mullins and countless friends and extended family.

Visitation will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, GUNDER/HALL Chapel, 347 W. Center St., Marion, on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 4 until 7 pm. A funeral service will be held at 10:30 AM on Thursday at the funeral home with Rev. Keith Irey officiating.  Burial will follow in Marion Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made in Jackie’s honor to Snyder Funeral Homes of Marion or The Upper Sandusky Humane Society.

Snyder Funeral Homes of Marion are honored to serve Jackie’s family.  Online condolences may be expressed by visiting www.SnyderFuneralHomes.com.

  • Families and Friends of Jackie, what can I say…
    I know your road has come to the end,
    And your sun has set for the last time
    I now you don’t want a room filled with gloom
    And you don’t want us to cry for your soul that’s been set free!
    I know you want us to miss you a bit -but not for long, and
    Not with our heads bowed low. You want us to remember the love we once shared,
    You want us to miss you, but to let you go.
    For this is your journey, one we’ll all take,
    Each must go alone. It is all part of God’s plan you see,
    A step on the road to home.
    When we become lonely and sick at heart, we’ll go to the friends & family we know.
    Bury our sorrows in doing good for others, we’ll miss you Jackie, but have let you go (to be with Our Father!)
    Rest in Peace my beautiful friend, you are surely missed! I know you are at the table with our Father serving refreshments to those around you now…as your work continues for eternity! <3 Prayers continually for Sam Cole, The Armbruster Family, Deb Mullins, Your Mom & All Family & Friends

  • Dear Armbruster Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort are the promises found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These scriptures along with others show that in the very near future God is going to not only bring our loved ones back to life but he is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we deal with sorrow, pain and even death itself. It is my sincere hope that these promises bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.
