Bellville, Ohio

BELLVILLE : Jacqueline R. “Jackie” Raines, passed away on Monday morning, August 26, 2019.

She was born on February 5, 1979, in Lorain, Ohio.  After living in Vermilion, New London and Lexington Jackie and her family moved to Bellville.  After attending Clear Fork Schools, Jackie was employed in several positions until she found her favorite, bartending.  She truly enjoyed interacting with all her customers which led her to her next career adventure, attending DeVry University for a degree in Computer Science.  Recently she worked as an IT professional.

Outgoing, Jackie never met a stranger, just a friend she hadn’t talked to yet.  Enthusiastic and full of energy, she loved concerts and Chicago, her favorite place to visit.  She truly enjoyed life, living every moment to the fullest.  She will be remembered as the life of the party were ever she went.

She is loved by her mother Betty (Ronnie) Arnold, her father Larry Raines; brothers Christopher, Robert “Tony” Raines, Royce (Theresea) Raines, and Richard (Vonda) Arnold; nieces and nephews Cheyenne Smith-Raines, Braelyn, Royce Jr., Christopher, and Isabel Raines; a great nephew Charlie Darr; aunts and uncles Patricia Daily, Carl Raines, Donnie Raines, Rosemary Burch, and Patricia Mejak, along with numerous extended family and a host of friends.

  • Jackie was an amazing friend. Always smiling. Always there for anyone. Our hearts cry with her family. She will be so missed. Thoughts and prayers to everyone who knew her.

  • Although it’s been many years since I have seen Jackie, she has always had a special place in my heart. She is the kind of person who would take the shirt off her back for you. She many times picked me up out of numerous struggles, and helped me laugh through many dark storms! Jackie’s silliness, goofiness and laughter was contagious!!! I am sorry for your loss, and will be praying that you too have people surrounding you with the same spirit of joy that Jackie brought to this earth during this time.

  • Few things can be said to relieve the sadness and grief that you are feeling. So, I will simply say that the Schuiling Family has the Raines Family in our thoughts and prayers.

  • There are so many stories I could share. Jackie was huge part of my life for a lot of years. The trouble we got into was so much fun. The trouble we didn’t get into was even more fun.
    One of my favorites was the summer between me being 19 and 20 years old. I pretty much lived at the house in Bellville. We had borrowed the Clueless movie from the public library. All summer that was all we watched. We could recite that movie word for word.
    If we weren’t watching that her and I were arguing over what soap to watch. I was a huge Days of Our Lives fan which was on at the same time as her favorite (if I remember correctly it was Young and the Restless). We would argue but in the end we ended up splitting up the week so we could both watch and stay caught up with our shows.

    Another thing I will always remember about Jackie was her laugh. I’ve had it stuck in my head all week. She belly laughed EVERY time she laughed. It would get me laughing every time I heard it.

  • Love goes on forever…and that’s exactly how Jackie will remain in my heart..forever.The light and love she shared with so many was unconditional,spunky and Real!! There are so many stories and special moments..I have never met anyone like Jackie . She will be missed but not forgotten..One of the things she did for me that I will always remember….One of my sober anniversaries she brought a bottle of sparkling apple juice, tied a huge congratulations balloon to it and left it by my back door. She was so excited to see if I got it. I could go on forever. Jackie.. May u be at peace.Your time on this Earth was short.I am blessed to have been a part of your Wonderful Life!!!

  • Jackie was such a sweet person and had a spirit about herself that was truly one of a kind. There’s many memories that Stephanie and I could share about Jackie, her pulling into our driveway blasting her music, to her going through Stephanie’s clothes (which I loved) and me telling her to take as much as she wanted. But I think the best memory that I’ll always remember is during the time Jackie spent living with us. She was bunk buddies with our son Roman, who loved having Jackie in his room. Everyday I would ask Jackie if she needed anything and her response was always the same, “ I’m just fine and dandy, thank you”. She truly was then, and she truly is now. We love you Jackie.
    RJ, Stephanie, Haeli, Roman and Raegan

  • Jackie never met a stranger. . .how true those words are. I worked with Jackie at Great American during her time here. She was on the network team with us. And it is true, everyone was a friend to Jackie, even if they did not know it yet. She was fun to be around. She came into work happy and genuinely enjoyed it here. She loved to learn new things, was always willing to volunteer to help out for anything. Our team is really going to miss her. She was always a bright light during the work week. And while we are all very sad she is gone, we know that she would only want us to look back and remember her joy, her smile, her kindness to everyone. Prayers and condolences to all her family and friends.

  • “Outgoing, Jackie never met a stranger, just a friend she hadn’t talked to yet.” This is how I knew Jackie. I will forever remember her taking my Freshman friends and I under her wing in Marching Band and sort of showing us “the ropes”. Through school and into adulthood Jackie always met me with a smile and was always so willing to hand out compliments. She was a sweet soul and will be sadly missed.

  • So sorry for you lose . I remember Jackie and she was a blessing to have known her. You have my blessing and prayers. Carolyn your friend always!
